Région: SaskatchewanWe have a ranch with 100 beef cows, several horses, goats, a donkey, pigs, numerous cats and dogs. In the summer you can help us with hauling the hay bales (round bales) from the field to the home yard, we use tractors and bale wagons. We check cows, checking & mending fences, vaccinating calves & do other veterinary work. We also would like you to help with general household duties as part of our family. Lots of opportunities to ride horses (either english or western, if you would like to learn to ride, I (Marilyn) could teach you to ride in a safe environment) fishing, canoeing, pick berries, and watch abundant wild-life – elk, deer, coyote, & fox. We have fishing equipment and a boat. Two generations of families live on the farm yard and you will be part of our family. There may be opportunities to go on trail rides of several days. If you are mechanically inclined we have a heated well equipped farm shop and we always have machinery which needs maintenance and repairs. For now I am interested in volunteers or apprentices to help me with several young horses in basic training. You don't need to have previous experiences, just a willingness to learn. In the fall we bring the cows home from the summer pasture to the yard where they are fed hay daily. An International driver’s license would be an asset. We have a vehicle for you to explore the area. I am just learning to use the computer, so any help would be well appreciated. Sincerely Marilyn
Région: Lower NormandyMy husband and I are a young couple who live in beautiful Normandy with our lovely 20 month old baby daughter Jasmine. We need help with various projects indoors and outdoors. For girls this is mainly helping me at home and for boys this is helping Nico on site with the renovation project. 1 - I work from home helping English people with settling into France (I am English and Nico is French, we are both bi-lingual), so I need some help at home while I work. This is mainly cleaning, cooking, tidying, gardening and babysitting. 2- My mum lives close by and again needs similar help to us. It is also quite nice to change places for a few days. 3- We recently bought a traditional Normandy second home nearby which my husband is restoring. He has finished the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and has now started on the living area and upstairs bedrooms. The work here is painting, sanding, plastering and helping with general building if you are interested. We are also doing lots of work in our 6 and a half acre garden which is actually an orchard at the moment! We are looking for volunteers to help us for stays of 2 weeks minimum. We welcome single (male or female) travellers and also couples. If you are travelling as a couple you may not necessarily be working together. We expect 5 hours work 5 days a week in return for your accommodation and all your basic food. We love the idea of Workaway, being able to make new friends from different countries!
