Area: LisbonAfter working as a workawayer myself for one and a half year I just bought a piece of land, near the artist town of Caldas Da Rainha, in between Alvorninha and Moita. It's about 8000 m2 and there is still a lot of wild land, bushes and trees. I have a thousand ideas of what to do with it, but It would be really nice to do this project together with you! We have started with several things (there is a water-tap and Electra, a toolcontainer and woodshed) and there is much more to do. Like clearing more land, making a compost-toilet and shower, level the terraces, making a greenhouse etc.etc. Everything as natural as possible. Making a solid foundation and permanent structure is NOT allowed. So think in roulottes, yurts, containers, wood etc. Also if you are interested in building something yourself and stay for longer we can talk about that.
Area: Koo Valley, Montagu, 2.5 hrs from Cape TownI'm looking for volunteers to help on our down to earth Mountain Retreat. It's off-grid, eco friendly living we started with organic gardening, plus there are plenty of hiking trails, and adventure activities.
Area: HagelandFor the moment we are not looking for any help. Hello, We have a house in the countryside - an old farm with a garden of 3000m² with organic fruit trees (trying to follow the permaculture principles). We are located 10 km from Tienen, a small city with a good train connection to Brussels (40 minutes) and 20 km from Leuven (a university city with a nice old centre). We have 3 cats, chickens and 2 pet pigs. We are in our mid thirties, down to earth people. Non smokers (smoking is possible outside, off course) and non vegetarians but we can provide vegetarian food if wished. Broad intrest going from geek tech stuff over finance to permaculture and transition network.

Area: Coimbra and Center**I have space for 1 or 2 workawayers last 2 weeks of September and first week of October** I bought this place in 2011. To me it is a beautiful with a nice atmosphere and a lot of potential. I am now in the process of setting it up as a home and Art Studio for myself, but it is part of a bigger vision in which I want to create a permaculture self sustaining community based on Vedic knowledge and principles. It does need a lot of tender loving care though before I can make the next step, moving closer to the bigger picture.. So far I have realised the basic things that make it possible for me to live here, a functional bathroom and kitchen. Right now I am renovating one of the smaller buildings that will function as sleeping/livingroom until the rest of the house is finished. For the period of April - October 2014 I will be happy to have volunteers who can help me finish the renovation that is currently in progress as well as help with transforming the current storage space into the future art studio. I also want to build a small wooden gardenhouse and will 100% have a place for someone who can build that. The land is organic by neglect. I wish to transform it into a beautiful lush garden of Eden. Volunteers with gardening skills and especialy landscapers are also very welcome. The immediate surroundings are beautiful and great for walking, a swimming spot at the river is 30 walking minutes away. On your free days I can bring you to Nelas trainstation from which it is easy to travel to f.i. Coimbra or the seaside. If you are interested in hiking in the Serra da Estrela mountains or canooing on one of the rivers I can arrange that for you. In summer I go quite often to a riverbeach to swim and enjoy the hot sulphouros springs there. The village in which my property is located has 2 cafe's annex shops. A WIFI connection is in a next village (10 min by bike). I am out of the rat race and into arts, spirituality and easy living. I am a painter (jolinemaria) and Art of Living teacher. I practise yoga and meditation. I cook vegetarian. I do not smoke and do not drink alcohol.
