We are a middle aged couple (one English and one Irish) who have taken the plunge and moved from the sunny south coast of the UK to the beautiful North West of Ireland. We have taken on a small hillside holding and the renovation of an old stone cottage. We ultimately aim to live as self sustainably as we can whilst preserving some modern comforts such as TV, washing machine, broadband etc. This will of course, all take time and money! Still, we currently have 4 goats, 2 dogs, 2 kittens and some poultry (free range eggs available daily at the moment). Our scenery is stunning and our fields run down to a small stream. We are 7 miles from the nearest town so please hold that in mind although I would be happy to offer a taxi service a couple of times a week depending on my work commitments. We'd also be happy to do a bit of tourist trail stuff - once again depending on work commitments.
We are Chantal & Michel. we live in a small village in South Brittany, between Nantes and Rennes. We run a B&B with 4 rooms and 2 self catering holidays in our converted 17-19th century farm. We also organise horse cart trips. Our property is 2.1 hectares, fields, woodland, large gardens for leisure,and a vegetable garden.
We are a public school in South India. The school is looking for a mature female teacher over the age of 35 to teach English to primary school children and to mentor the teaching staff in this English medium school. The school has had many volunteers but is now looking for a more senior and permanent teacher (3 months or more). The role would come with free accomodation, food and a local living allowance, language classes in Malayalam, complimentary use of a Beach Hotel.

We are made up of two friendly grown ups two very friendly children and three overly friendly large dogs. We live about two miles outside the Georgian town Of Doneraile . There is a large historic house, Doneraile Court set in a beautiful parkland. This offers wonderful walks swans and deer. Doneraile is about 30 miles from Cork city and there is a bus daily.
Thanks everyone for your emails...........we are fine for this year and don't need more work-a- way volunteers.
We are a married couple of 20+ years with many years of experience of working at home and elsewhere as organic gardeners, educators and fund raisers.
We're within walking distance of all downtown amenities and love the walk-ability and bike-ability of Victoria, spending long house exploring the neighborhoods and parks around town.
Bill is a realtor and founder of a fund-raising campaign for projects in Guatemala.
He loves alternative building projects such as cob and straw-bale. He was excited to be able to build their chicken coop, (we call it Cirque Du Poulet), entirely of salvaged materials.
I'm a plant nerd, working for the last 14 years as an organic garden trainer and organizer. We've worked to create a close sense of community on our street, organizing block parties and a recent tree planting project. I also love to make mosaics from salvaged materials and have included a few pictures of some of the ones in our neighborhood.
