My name is Frank. I'm 46 years old, German and I live in the north of Sweden. Our farm is about 800km above Stockholm. Right now the rest of my family lives in Germany. We have 20 dogs (Alaskian Huskies + 2 indoor dogs) and 3 cats.
We are an Equestrian Association that promote equestrian activities in the most southern region of the country, through actions involving the general population and public and private entities, in particular in the field of training, hippotherapy, the equestrian tourism, chill out and the equestrian competition, meetings, tours and holiday camps, in order to socialize and exchange of experiences will be promoted. The association will also promote technical and historical information on the horse, horsemanship, Portuguese culture and tradition and serve as a point of relationship with counter parts clubs in Portugal and abroad.
Now we have the opportunity to open a new riding Centre with a project that also give us the opportunity to develop work with disabled clildren and we need help!
We are a nice and young family in Eastern Townships. We live in a nice big house in Sherbrooke, in the area of St-Elie-d'Orford (Sherbrooke).
We have two big boys (13 and 14 years old). We also have two young cats living outside. We are living in a quiet residential area with lot of trees. So, you can take a walk in the forest behind the house if you like. There is also a bike you can use if you want to go downtown and there is a downtown bus that passes near at a low cost.
We are looking for a volunteer because we need help for housekeeping (cooking, vacuuming, a bit of outdoor maintenance, etc.). Also, we are looking for having someone from April to May 10 (2015) to be there for our kids mostly for supervising their homeworks/study and to prepare the dinner.
Dont hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Hope to see you soon!
I am looking for two or three people who want to experience and learn more about traditional rural living in Canada and in particular the homestead-farm heritage of Ontario. I need people who are energetic nature-lovers, preferably with some building and renovation experience, but certainly willing to learn. People with electrical, plumbing and carpentry skills would be great to have as workaways, as well as people with gardening and landscaping experience. Someone who enjoys cooking would also be a big help.
Setting up a website/blog to document the progress of the restoration project is a goal. So someone with good computer/internet skills and/or an interest in photography/film/video arts would also be good to have.
We are a swedish-french family that lives in the south of France since 11 years. We took a train from Paris, bought a ruin, that we renovated to become a guesthouse. In this time we also had 2 children that are now 6 and 11. We have 3 rooms and 3 apartements that we rent out full time.
Life is beautiful here in the south, and we have lots of nice guests.
Please come and enjoy french country living!
This is an ideal location for someone who wants the enchantment of countryside life but also the opportunity to visit the pretty town of Avignon and Nimes, just 40 minutes drive away.
Our place is almost 8km away from Uzes, a very pretty Provence town with lots of life, coffe places and a market. We can provide a bike to reach the village. Or a car sometimes. In Uzes there is also language schools if this could be something for you
