Area: ArkansasWe are an organization which assists persons with disabilities to train their own assistance dog. WE work one on one mostly at their homes. We do some public event work and visitations of schools, nursing homes. We also sometimes have a dog in training at the compound. Our compound is 7 acres in the heart of the North Arkansas Ozarks. Flippin, our town has about 1,500 people and is 10 miles north of us. We are deep in the country side so at dawn and dusk you may see deer stroll down our driveway, as we drive to town a wild turkey, armadillo, quail, may cross the road. And a short hike from us is a creek with a natural rock waterslide when the water is high enough. We are 10 miles from the White River, great trout, the Twin Lakes, for bass fishing. This is a rustic, peaceful area 30 years behind the pace of the modern world. While we have satellite TV and internet, some 'hollars' lose cell phone reception, there are no nightclubs...not a party place. We are rustic still here in some ways, well water, pipes can break and freeze so have to be repaired, no water during that time, things break, need to be repaired, it is a process. So much to be done, but we live here year round. Our previous volunteer is just now moving on after 4 years. We have hosted exchange students in our years. Founder is a military brat grew up in Germany.
Area: TasmanWe are a friendly, pretty relaxed and laidback Dutch couple with our son Luc who is almost 2 and we have two cats. We run this amazing cafe/restaurant/bar/hotel, in Murchison, and we need some extra help, especially looking after (which means playing with) Luc. We also need some help around the house, a little cleaning and whatever needs to happen. We also have a little garden where we grow our own berries and other fruits which we use in the pies. So if you like a little gardening, you can do that as well.
Area: AndaluciaHi, my name is Christie and my partner is Frank, and we live in a beautiful valley in the countryside on the outskirts of a town named Coin in Malaga. Our home is a special old cortijo, partly renovated, and we happily share it with quite a few animals, (our tribe), namely, cats, dogs, pot-bellied pigs, peacocks etc which make up part of our family. We are looking for general help around the large garden weeding and planting, and possibly some building repair work, building a large composter, possibly building a training ring for horses, painting the outside of the house, etc. If you love animals (very important!), and think that you would be happy in a country environment then please contact us. We would be very grateful for people with professional skills in building and gardening work. We are looking for help around September time. Please specify any dietary requirements as we are not vegetarians, we don't eat much meat, but some. We would also appreciate non-smokers. A little information on us : Frank is a singer/songwriter and I am a healer, craniosacral therapist/sculptor/painter. We work hard, not just in what we do but also around this amazing home, but we also know when and how to enjoy life too. We do our best to keep the balance right, we don't always succeed, but we notice if things aren't quite as they could be and always address the situation. We have this amazing place which needs more than two pairs of hands can manage, but it also has heart and soul, and we would like to bring the heart and soul out to it's maximum and create a wonderful retreat for people to come and heal, paint, write........just be...... we have a vision for this place. It will take time, but then anything that is worth anything does.
Area: Brandenburg/SchorffheideWe have created a great-riding arena near Berlin, which has always been our life long dream . In 2002 we moved from Berlin to Brandenburg Werbellin, where we now live with our horses and Jack Russells (we are hobby breeders) and other small animal lovers together. Our little "wellness oasis" is located in the Biosphere Reserve Schorfheide. This is one of the most beautiful areas around Berlin, wonderful nature and very close to the city of Berlin (35 km). The Werbellinsee with its great swimming and riding is the perfect lake as well as good for canoeing.
Area: Lower NormandyWe are a family of four running a chambre d'hotes in Normandy. The children are 13 and 10 years old and we live in the middle of a lovely French hamlet. The area is magnificent and we are constantly still surprised by how much Normandy has to offer. Easy travel to Paris close-by 2 hours by train and 3 hours by car.
