Area: east javaI live in a small village named Kalianyar 15km from the nearest town (Bondowoso). With a friend I'm trying to set up a tourism program in my village. Our goal is to develop an eco-tourist village, and to offer visitors to learn about our way of life. So far weve tried plastic waste recycling training with the help of a friend from France. We are also starting to give extra English lessons or assist the English teacher at the kalianyar primary school. I am welcoming workers to come to my village to share my way of life, help me develop the tourism program (by talking, giving ideas) , give some English lessons depending on your level If you have any ability or experience in eco tourism and environment well be glad to learn from you. For the lessons to be effective, longer stays (at least 2 weeks) are preferred . Easy access to Bondowoso by bus. I can pick you up at the Bondowoso bus station. Internet access and supermarket available in Tamanan( 3 km away). We can provide bikes. From Bondowoso you can go to the Ijen volcano .

Area: Lower SaxonyWe (couple with three boys - 22, 20, 13 - and dog) are living on the country side in a small farmer community for seven years now. We bought an old farmhouse and are still renovating part of it. We are living almost self sustained (regarding meat, veggies, electricity and some other stuff) by having a greenhouse, big garden, poultry, sheep, pigs, rabbits and bees. We make wine, brew our own beer, make cheese and are interested in a lot of other old handcrafts. We have a carpenters and a metal workshop in one of our barns. A lot of space is available for living and working. We are both working part time self employed in the internet business. The older boys are at University and not at home very often. During most of the year we need help in the house, with the animals and in the garden. From December to mid of March we normally do not host. We also like to share our knowledge about the things we do here (e.g. organic farming, self sustainability). Last projects we were working on: - building a Pizza clay oven - building an aquaponic system. Current / planned projects: - wool picking - weaving - seeding season is starting soon - renovating / expanding the living area - building a pit greenhouse
