Région: British ColumbiaCome and learn how to play with the plants! We are a small organic market garden, providing vegetables, herbs and flowers to restaurants and families in the Nelson area,We also have a stall at the farmers market. My husband and I have been running the market garden for 10 years and hosting helpers for just as long. We provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about organic gardening, per-ma culture, different food plants, local food networks, as well as growing mushrooms, and what it takes to run a successful small business. Gardening experience is not essential; we prefer a desire and willingness to learn. There is room for your inspiration and creativity here. We are an easy 20 minute car ride or hitchhike from the cafes and pubs of Nelson, and 10 minutes from Balfour. There is forest to explore above the property with many hiking and biking trails all the way to Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park. A semi-private beach is just 5 minutes down the road for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. We have bikes for you to use, a badminton court, and two hammocks under the walnut tree. We understand the need for balance between work and recreation, so we offer a different arrangement to traditional workaway. We are asking for only 2 hours of work a day in exchange for accommodation only,with wireless Internet and cable T.V. You must be able to supply your own food & personal products.
Région: PenangAn American expat writer and teacher living in Asia, I have a small comfortable but older 2-bedroom home just outside the city of Georgetown where I care for a well-behaved, quiet and very cuddly family of cats. The house is a block from the Tanjung Bungah beach with a bus stop just around the corner that can take you on the route between the jetty downtown and the Batu Ferringhi tourist resort. Lots of great local food nearby as well as decent restaurants, or you can cook here. Visa seekers can get to consulates via bus or taxis; shoppers can walk to 3 different malls. A book lover, I live a fairly quiet life amidst a number of books and DVDs covering my many interests including world cultures, travel, theatre, films, art, teaching English, history, philosophy, and of course, lots of fiction. I do enjoy heading out to explore the island, taking time off from the many hours I spend online researching, writing, teaching, corresponding, etc. And love chatting over a cup of coffee or tea. My current projects are online writing, copyediting and teaching, and volunteer work for 4PAWS Penang Animal Welfare Society. And being 'foster mom' to lots of lovely cats.
