We need a hardworking, respectful person/couple to help for the last month in the guesthouse and with some small construction and outdoor work. It would be especially helpful if you knew how to run a chain saw/use an axe and had some experience cutting trees and firewood.
We have five beautiful forested acres that border a wildlife sanctuary comprised of forest, islands and tidal flats in a Unesco Biosphere Reserve area called Clayoquot Sound. We are on the same peninsula and proximate to Pacific Rim National Park. Our area is famous for its pristine forest wilderness, stunning beaches & rocky headlands, as well as surfing, salmon fishing and wildlife viewing: bears and wolves; otter, seabirds, migratory birds etc. Tofino is a mecca for young & old from around the world who come to enjoy easy access to a one of a kind, pristine, forest and sea temperate rainforest ecosystem.
Our home is located in the mountains on a river 4 miles from the largest lake in Oregon. Last summer we transformed our garage into an art/dance studio. This experience was wonderful working with the workaway program and the people who joined us. This April 2014 we are looking for carpenters, drywall and landscapers to help finish the art studio and build natural tent platforms using logs from the forest. Starting April through June we need help. We are located 2 hours from Portland Oregon and 1 hour from our state capital Salem. I do commute to Portland weekly so you can have transportation to and from the city to dine out or enjoy theater or a movie. I am asking for 20 hours of work a week in exchange for a room and board. We also could use help in creating some elevated garden beds, decks and paths to the river.
Hola. I am in the process of reviving and improving the coffee plantation that I inherited from my parents. In collaboration with a government assistance program and the help of the farm manager, an Englishmen, we are hoping to make the farm beneficial and sustainable for the region. In addition, we will to continue to improve the quality of the coffee and increase our share in the market. It is believed this area grows the best coffee in the world but it is not well known internationally. Tourists are almost unheard of here and the culture of the Andean people is completely intact. The locals only speak spanish so you can expect to be immersed in the language and welcomed to the community.

We are two partners who run a small resort on the island Jambelí. We share over the idea of busines also the protection of nature, the houses are almost entirely built with environmentally friendly materials.

Hi, I’m a single man looking temporarily for a bit of help round the house. I work from home (internet based) and have various DIY projects on the go as well as various other hobbies and sports (tennis, squash, kitesurfing) which means there never seems to be enough time to get things done. So I'm looking for a bit of general help to keep on top of things.
