Area: Lakeland, FloridaHi, My husband (Jeff) and I live in Lakeland, Florida which is in the center of the state. We would like to host volunteers for the summer months June, July and August (possibly longer). We are approximately 1 hour from the west coast (Clearwater and St Pete Beaches) and 1-1/2 hour from the east coast (Vero and Cocoa Beaches), less than an hour from Busch Gardens and Disney World, Legoland and other attractions, or canoe/kayak Florida rivers and see the Old Florida. Jeff and I live a relatively quite life and have three little white poodles who are spoiled rotten. We are very easy-going, but also very hard workers. We have residential rental property and would like help with various projects around the property. Also, Jeff is a Master Contractor and a mechanical genius and is willing to teach his skilled trades to volunteers wanting to learn about construction basics, problem solving, power tools, project lay-outs, and proper tooling for any type of repair and maintenance job, the possibilities are endless and he always makes learning fun. Teresa could use help with cleaning, gardening, mowing, landscaping, DIY projects, and organizing.

Area: Emilia–RomagnaWe are a family of three, Maria, Ron and our son Julian, plus our very lazy Italian dog, Stella. We're English, originally from London, and have lived in Italy for 10 years now. Julian is in his final year at the liceo in Bologna and he's hoping to go on to study engineering there. I teach English from time to time but my real passion is gardening. My partner is a retired university professor who spends most of his time writing and still travels quite frequently, mostly to Japan. Our house is a bit rambling, but comfortable and stuffed with books, and full of lots of quiet places to go and read, meditate or just do nothing if you feel like it.
Area: Midi PyreneesJeffrey and Michelle Ulbrich are a franco-american couple (both fluent in both languages) living in a restored 13th century millhouse on 4 hectares (10 acres) of land about 100 meters from the Arros River with their dog, cat and two horses. This is extreme rural France. If you like a quiet life with plenty of greenery and practically no neighbors, this is for you. If you need nightlife and excitement, it is not. Which is not to say we don't have a lot of fun and many interesting friends. There are frequent social gatherings and varied activities. The small town of Marciac (pop 1,200) is 5 kilometers away. It has two or three cafes, three or four restaurants, a cinema and a few small shops. There is no public transportation. We are quite happy to lend you our bicycles or give you a lift into town. To come here you would travel to Tarbes where we would meet you at Tarbes train station or Tarbes/Lourdes airport.
