Area: MunsterThanks, we are now boked for 2014. We are a family of three living in a beautiful rural location in Co. Tipperary. Oliver and Oisín work full time and I (Tracy) work part time in adult education but am free for three months of the summer. This is when the garden is my priority and we have a large vegetable garden and poly tunnel. We produce our own food to grow and also sell at the weekly farmers market and our honesty stall at the front gate. We live happily with our dog, two cats, two ducks and four hens. Our aim is to become more self sufficient and earn an income from our garden and house. This is where we need your help. We have built a self catering apartment for holiday lets and everything is only half done. Half of the tiling, half of the wooden flooring, half of the painting, half of the kitchen presses, half of the plumbing. We need help to finish this and hope you have some of these skills. Once the tiling/painting/flooring is finished I can start decorating and we can then get a website and market the apartment. Can you help us with any of these tasks? We are now looking for help in August and we will have a French volunteer staying then to help with the garden as well. If this suits please contact me. We do ask that all volunteers have their own insurance before they stay with us.
Area: MassachusettsI have a farmlet on Nantucket Island, with extensive organic vegetable gardens, an unheated greenhouse, a flock of laying hens and two goldendoodle dogs. I would like to expand my vegetable production for next growing season and I'm exploring permaculture methods. My home is a mile from the beach and is located in the agricultural part of the Island, with the community garden across the street, one of the two remaining large scale farms a mile away, the local brewery right around the corner, and another market garden next door. Nantucket is known for its beaches, whaling history, conservation areas, historic Town center and it's a major tourist destination. In the fall and winter it's quieter but there's still lots to do with year round live theatre, films, and music. And of course there are over 50 miles of beaches which are beautiful in the off season.
Area: Lower SaxonyHi everyone, we are a family with so far three kids (born 2007, 2009,2012) and a few dogs. A few months ago we came back from our stay in Malaysia (almost 4 years) and we bought an old farm house this year with a 10 000m2 garden in the village side in the north of Germany. Slowly we want to change the place into a self sustainable place to live (in what we understand of permaculture). It starts with fencing, preparing some places for growing vegetables (though we try to give as little impact into nature as possible) as well as wood work inside the house, little bit of painting and renovation. We have build a new trailor when we came to Germany to stay at which needs little more work. Actually we can think of anything when it comes to putting ideas into reality at our place (compost toilet, clay oven, solar cooker, mud house, ...) and we are happy to host people who are interested in trying new things or working on what they have learned somewhere else (so to speak a playground in nature). We are looking for people who are able to do physical work and who like the exchange with others. You dont need to have any skills but be willing to learn and do. We dont want people who want to just sit and eat and try to travel cheap without any interest in really working together! We dont except you to take drugs during the time of stay with us and you must be free from fears against dogs! Staying with us you will have your own room to sleep, sharing the bathroom with us. You can use our internet and our bicycles. We are cooking vegetarian but we dont mind if you eat meat. Just dont expect us to prepare it for you. We are staying around 5km away from the next town for buying groceries and the next bigger city is maybe around 9 km away with even more shops. There is a bus station not to far away on the main road and buses going to the cities few times a day. This area called "Wendland" is very famous for tourism and for the creativity of the people who moved and move here due to the anti - nuclear - movement. Very interesting place with cultural activities, music nights and so on.
