Area: MarcheWe (Graham and Saranne) live here with our two daughters who go to school just across the valley in Colmurano. We live in this area of Italy mainly because of its similarities to Graham's home country of Ireland; from the landscape to the outlook of the local people. We love everything that Le Marche and its people represent: the Marchigiani are hard-working yet have a relaxed approach to life, a deep-rooted sense of tradition and a strong community spirit. Above all, they are warm and friendly people who love a story over a glass or two!! We are currently looking for people to help with the following: Planting our natural swimming pond Building outdoor steps and fencing Preparing veggie plots An art project with a caravan! General land maintenance Pruning olive trees Harvesting wood Some indoor work/maintenance/help around the house (usually only in bad weather) If you're interested - send us a message. Here's some more about us...... We moved here to take advantage of the beautiful peace and quiet that both this house and the surrounding area offers and to provide our children with a safe and yet also challenging place to grow up. It was our dream and it is now a wonderful reality. That's not to say it isn't hard work - it is a farmhouse after all! We spend most of our free time from our careers tending to the land and the house. (Graham works for the local wineries and Saranne's career is divided between a love of theatre, writing and being a full-time mum.) Our olive trees, veggie patches and vines need constant care and, of course, when the time comes to harvest it is all hands on deck! September is time for grapes, October/November is olive harvest and the veggie patch supplies us with delicious produce all year round which naturally means we are also planting most of the year to ensure a steady flow of food. Then there's making jams and preserves to make use of all the fruits growing on our land - figs, persimmon, pears, apples, elderberries, blackberries, walnuts, almonds, peaches to name just a few of a wide variety! There are many ways to describe our interests and passions in life – but no specifics quite fit. We share a deep interest in wine, theatre, history and culture, slowfood and the wonders and adventures of the outdoors and that’s why we live here as they are all in abundance in this area of Le Marche. It's funny - we love living life on the slow side but there's always so much to do!
Area: Kampong ChamOBT is registered as a local NGO, accredited by the Cambodian Ministry of Interior since July 2, 2009. We provide free-of-charge English classes to the Chiro village children to give them the chance to go on to higher education (university or hospitality school) and to improve their employment prospects. Most of the children who attend OBT come from farmer families with an income of less than 25 dollars a month. This is less than a dollar a day for the whole family. Giving a child the gift of being able to speak English will enable them to get a well-paid job in the rising Cambodian tourist industry and feed a family of up to ten people. It will also stop most children from finding illegal work in Thailand or working cheap manual labour from an early age. The aim of OBT is to contribute to the country’s development at a community level, to reduce poverty in Cambodia, and to assist in building the nation’s skills base. OUR PROGRAM: - English, traditional khmer music & dance courses based on a daily program in addition to the state school. - Over 200 students aged between 6 and 25 year old. - Local English teachers. One full-time and several part-time teachers. An important aim of OBT is to involve people from the community by employing local, dedicated and motivated people who want to share their English knowledge. The best teenager students have the chance to become well-paid teachers for OBT. - Foreign volunteers.
Area: LimousinI DON'T HOST PEOPLE DURING WINTER !!! YOU ARE WELCOME AFTER MAY 2015 !!! IF YOU LOOK FOR A PLACE AROUND YOU SHOULD CHECK THIS : http://www.workaway.info/622318373132-en.html Salut salut les amis ! Good day everybody ! Hope you are doing very well! THE PLACE : I am living (living means sharing with plants and animals) on a land in the deep center of France. It is an amazing nature place, full of plants and free pets. No cars, no pollution, friendly neighbours...I am so so happy to live there :-) There is a river passing through the prary, it's very usefull for watering the garden and refreshing during summer. The prapry is located on a splendid valley surrounded by forest and small hills. It look like a bit as if you were lost in the jungle (as much as you can feel this way in France :-)) ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE WITH TRAVELERS : I am used to host all kind of people since several years (couchsurfing, helpers, travelers, visitors, ...) ANIMALS AND PETS : I have 7 chickens, 2 roosters and a recently borned baby chiken, plus a couple of ducks male and female (babies for next summer ?). I also have a small red hair cat, female, a little bit too cuddly :-)... I had goats but I had to give thous friendly animals to some nice neighbours because they were destructing all my plantations :-(. There is many horses and cows all around, If you come early spring you will see lots of babies borning in the fields around. On the land, you will see : small fishes (in the river of course), salamanders (at night), colorfull butterflies and dragonflies (at the end of spring) ABOUT FOOD : At summer time, all vegetables are organic as I never use any chemicals. I sometimes buy some goat cheese, fruits and cereals to my neighbours. I very rarely eat meat. My chikens and ducks give some delicious eggs... I have fish in the river but I never could kill them. One time I catched one with my hands, (s)he was so beautiful and peacefull, I couldn't kill him/her, ha ha neither my chikens dude !!! They are my friends ! Maybe I can hunt in the forest but I am not sure, I never tried ... Killing vegetables is way easier :-) For cooking I have a gas hoven. Wood cooking is also possible. I am not cooking for you, I mean, sometimes I will cook for you of course, that's my pleasure, but not everyday. I like people to be very independent and responsible on my place. If we are several workers, like a small comunity, I hope that we can self organise in a collectiv way for preparing the food and washing the dishes. If you have skills in preparing food, if you like to do it and if we are a lot of people working on the land at the same time, then it can be your task, why not ! ... MY SKILLS, WHAT CAN I TEACH YOU : I am not bad in building things, fixing tools, repairing mechanic stuff, I was a scientific ingeener in my past life, can be useful sometimes ... But experience is the best way to learn and I still have so much to discover !!! Since I am living in the nature I am learning about gardening and plants, I am very passionated about plants, trees, Healing with nature and communicating with animals. I am not a musician but sometimes I play music :-) I have a drum kit, a guitare, a ukulélé, a mandoline and a trumpet (which I didn't succed in understand how it works :-() I really like to cook but I rarely do it when I am on my land because there is so much other things to do ... HOW TO GET TO MY PLACE : Region : Limousin Département : Creuse (23) It exactly is in the geometric middle of France. Big cities around are Limoges, Clermont-Ferrand, Montluçon, Guéret ... The land location is 4km far from the village "CHAMBON SUR VOUEIZE" (23170). This village is located 25 km south west from the city Montluçon. If you don't have a car you can come by train (to Montluçon or Guéret) But then after you have to use the ride share (website covoiturage bla bla car in french you have to pay by credit card on the website but it works very well and it is a lot cheaper than the train ... Actually and personally I never use train only this website) And also you can hitch hike quite easily and securely in this area of France. If you don't succed in comming closer, I can pick you up in Gouzon or Lepaud... BUT LET ME KNOW AT LEAST 2 DAYS BEFORE !!! Well my friends, if you feel like my place (and me :-)) can offer something to you, just ask me for any more information, Let's talk and see what life can offer ! Peace to everybody, enjoy life, love people ... Sam PS : I want to open an international library on my land so that every traveler can find books in many different languages. So if you have books you like in your mother tong language and that you are ok to give for this project, please bring it there !!!
