Région: TuscanyTogether with my 13 year old daughter Rosie I live in a lovely position in a gorgeous valley, yet within walking distance of a local town with cafes, restaurants and views. It's a special place of healing and beautiful nature. We're in the mountains of Monte Amiata, an undiscovered part of southern Tuscany, although the vibrant local town Castel del Piano is close by. I work with colour and astrology and offer readings, courses and workshops. We live a holistic lifestyle and eat a healthy diet that is mostly vegetarian. We're English, but intend to start speaking Italian at home sometimes. We enjoy hosting Workawayers, the mutual exchange, making new friends, sharing the simple beauty of our life in Italy, and have been so delighted and grateful for all the wonderful people who have come to stay and help!
Région: EnglandWe are a husband and wife team and are self employed innovative artists, living and working in a rural part of Shropshire with the nearest shops just over 6 miles away. We mainly create figurative sculpture using fabric as our main medium but our 'winter' venture is creating lights to sell at the christmas markets. Our home is a scandanavian log bungalow with loads of charm and we are surrounded by farm fields, very tranquil apart from the odd tractor!
Région: Pennsylvania, USAWe are now accepting volunteers for 2014 for stays of 7 to 14 days. We are two suburban homesteaders with a tiny backyard flock of laying hens and approximately 2800 square feet of garden space. We're located in the Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania. Our goal is to produce as much of our own food as possible through organic methods, while demonstrating what degree of production is possible on a residential plot of land by ordinary people with no formal training in gardening or agriculture. In 2009 we produced over 600 pounds of food from our backyard, and in 2010, over 760 pounds. We expect to continue that trend going forward for the next several years. Since we grow for our own consumption and not for market, ours is very much a polyculture site. We have fruit trees and several types of perennial berries, a large garden of annual vegetables, and many culinary and medicinal herbs. Other interests include light DIY/construction work to address on-site needs, permaculture, herbal medicine (we're still very much beginners), various methods of food preservation, dumpster diving for construction materials, local foods, Transition, ethical consumption, and all aspects of sustainability. We look forward to learning more about the world, other cultures, and many areas of expertise from our volunteers. We enjoy playing Euro board games in the evening and would be happy to teach you a few. Plans for 2014 include developing a living fence (hedgerow) to replace our old wooden one, installation of rain barrels for passive irrigation, and planting more perennial crops such as asparagus, blueberries, and rhubarb. We'll also experiment with some specialty herbs and vegetables from Asia and continue learning to extend the growing season with our small hoop house. We plan to raise small batches of chickens and turkeys for the table, and improve our trellis structures for our table grapes, arctic kiwis, and espalliered fruit trees.
