Area: Languedoc RoussillonWhat is the idea behind this project ? Every year from May 1st – Sept 30th we arrange a summer camp venue for young men in the French Pyrénées. The modern world puts a lot of pressure on young people. Young men in particular might appreciate a moment of pause outdoors with others, doing something constructive in which to get a different perspective on their lives and the direction they want to take. Time to consider aims, hopes and dreams. There are no formal discussion sessions – no-one who claims to know the answers – just the time and space to allow oneself to think and exchange experiences in a good, supportive and warm atmosphere. The key theme is " Outdoors - With nice People - Doing Something Constructive !"
Area: veliko tarnovo BulgariaHi, I am renovating an old house and barns in the village of Hotnitsa, 15km from the town of Veliko Tarnovo. Honey House will eventually become a Yoga, Reiki and horse trekking center, hopefully taking its first residential paying guests some time in 2014. There is already a trickle of day guests for yoga, horse riding and therapies. Basically I need help to turn the dream into a reality. I am looking for people with some building/restoration knowledge, you don't have to be a master crafts person, but if you are that would be fantastic. Also artists to add beautiful instillations, find creative ways to make ugly old furniture look stunning or at least quirky and to help hide the cracks with colour and laughter. I am looking for workaways with a good sense of humour, who are willing to give everything a go. I would like this to be a happy experience for everyone. You need to be able to work without constant supervision as I am often busy with the horses or teaching, so people with an ability to structure their own days and get on with the work is important to me. There are 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 chickens and 4 horses who call Honey House their home. They are very much part of my family, and are all over the furniture, very playful and sometimes a pain in the bum. If you don't love animals this really is not the right place for you. I am currently a vegetarian but about to make the move to becoming vegan. But I do not expect you to be vegan whilst here, but only ask that you dont cook/eat meat here, what you do away from the house in your own time is up to you I have travelled extensively throughout the years and have many a funny travel tale, I also enjoy listening to other peoples tales and learning about people, their culture and languages. Living at Honey House is about loving nature and living a life which brings about a higher vibration full of love and laughter, whilst not being to serious about anything. Its great to giggle :) Workaways are very welcome to join Yoga classes (if there is space) learn reiki and ride the horses.
Area: CanterburyGreeting We are two professional adults who work full time and love our animals. Our 6 acre property has chickens, alpacas, dogs and one blind kuni kuni pig, along with a mini guide pig. We are currently making over the property and establishing an eco friendly environment for ourselves and our animals. We aim to become as self sufficent as possible and enjoy every minute of every day! Come and visit our little slice of farm paradise only minutes from the city.You need to be pretty self-sufficent, love animals and be confident to have a go. Currently we have a large vege garden which need prep for the new plants to go in. We like it when you cook and there is always miles of eggs! Work includes painting, weeding, animal feeding and care. We now have 28 newly laying hens that demand a cuddle and adore attention. We have yet to get the alpacas halti trained. We have miles of spare clothes and gumboots, so not to worry about those things. Please feel most welcome to email at any time. It can be a few days as I email usually from work., Cheers and thanks, Nicky
Area: Fethiye - Turkey:*:> Share my Food Forest Life Dream close your eyes . and get lost in a forest . start swimming in the perfect ecosystem of the forest ocean . imagine that this is a forest where there is no human interference ; nobody is ploughing the land , no fertiliser or pesticide , no weeding . all the plants , trees , birds , animals , and the weeds live together healthfully and in peace . all plants grow together ; no plant calls any other plant a weed or unwanted plant . if we can elude our prejudice and stop seeing some plants as weeds then we can see how the so-called weed can be beneficial to the plant growing just next to it and to the ecosystem . all kind of plants , all kind of animals , and all kind of human beings , without excluding any species , all this diversity is great richness in our perfect ecosystem . take a forest ecosystem as a perfect guide to design and create your own food forest life . how easy is it to share life in our own forest ecosystem that we design , sharing the life as companion plants ? how easy is it to weave and live infinite invisible connections in our very complicated life as a forest ecosystem . how easy is it to strip or file our ego and prejudice ? If you can beleive in the perfectness of the nature and forest ecosystem and if you can manage to create an ecosystem where you can share the life without any measures , any prejudice , any weighing machines , then you feel the very perfectness of the life , the only truth . share the life . do not try to get as much as you desire from the nature ; accept thankfully as much as the nature is ready to give you . I am not looking for volunteering workers . I am looking for friends to share my Food Forest Life dream ; learning from each others experiences , we design the life together , expand our horizons together , use our skills in a productive way , and contribute to the nature as much as we can . Life is a very complicated perfect great joke :: if you have some sense of humour , full of energy to work and full of energy to enjoy the life at the same time ready to practice or learn such a life ::: you are more than welcome . *** We work , prepare our breakfast , lunch , and dinner together . There is no management , there is no manager , no workers here :: we are all equal . Working hours :: I do not have scheduled hours . When we have some work to do , we work ; little or very late , we work . we water our trees , harvest products , design our field . As the Permaculture suggests , we try to design our life so intelligently in order to save some time and have more leisure to enjoy the life and the nature . When we like to have free time or free day , we have it . I hate to limit the life in hours . I hate the measures , calculations , accounts , weighing machines , unjust scales ; I have broken all of them ; I try to hear the beautiful voice of the natural order . The perfect nature does not have weighing machines . I do not smoke . You do not smoke . We do not smoke . With all my respect and love , smoking friends , I do really care about your health . As Permaculture suggests , problem is solution ; if there is a problem , then , definitely there is a positive solution . We talk about solving all kinds of problems positively , but we do not smoke . *** I do prefer you stay at least one week . It is a good idea to have some good field shoes . Having good shoes , then we can set off , searching for life , searching for ourself , searching for the road to the nature .

Speak and listen to the Language of Nature . ====*=====*==== When you are here , you have the opportunity to visit ::: * Fethiye . * Oludeniz Beach , that is our world-famous beautiful beach , 15 km away from Fethiye . * On the way to Oludeniz Beach , we have Ghost Village – Kayakoy - , largely abandoned after a population exchange agreement signed by the Turkish and Greek governments in 1923 . Today Kayakoy village serves as a museum and is a historical monument . Around 500 houses remain as ruins and are under the protection of the Turkish government , including two Greek Orthodox Churches , which remain the most important sights of the ghost town . * Saklikent , it is a wanderful gorge of more than 20 km long . * Many antique Lycian cities , like Cadianda , Xanthos , Letoon and Tlos .

The Prickly Pear and to be started soon , My Lycian Garden . you will be sharing our life in both dreams . in south-west corner of Turkey , in Fethiye , a very lucky area with a generous sunshine , fertility , and beautiful scenery , I have chosen an arid and infertile land contrary to the rich lands of Fethiye to start and create a Food Forest . I have started to plant olive trees , roses with prickly pears , fruit and non-fruit trees , perennial and annual plants , evergreen and deciduous trees . the heart of my forest is not prejudice , wide open to all flowers and weeds , with or without thorns . I am trying to create a simple , primitive , sustainable life , experiment Permaculture and Natural Farming principles , as the philosophy of Natural Farming enlightens my way . our 6-hectare-farm , We 45 km away from Fethiye . we are in a very early stage of our farm , don’t expect too much , so , being a new farm , we have lots of things to do . therefore , we need your different ideas , visions , perspectives and your participation . you can be part of weaving the dreams and reality . * we all stay in a simple house, all sleep together in a large room with seperators , kind of semi private rooms with a private bathroom . ** you may stay alone in a room or share with a friend . *** I stay at the farm few days a week . the rest of the week , you may be staying alone or with few other friends . You may be the only person staying at the farm for few days or there may be some other friends .. **** until April 2014 , we were staying in our small hotel in the city of Fethiye and we were visiting our farm daily . so , read the beautiful feedbacks written before April 2014 from my beautiful friends accordingly . before April 2014 we had a comfortable life , after April 2014 , we are living at our farm with primitive conditions , at the very heart of the nature . If you dare to experience sharing such a Food Forest Life Dream , nothing else but just a dream :: you are more than welcome . *** Ali KISLAK
Area: The school centre is only 10 km away from the west coast of Denmark. The nearest small town Ulfborg is 4 km away, and there you can find the most necessary facilities. Holstebro is the nearest bigger town, 25 km away.We are a diverse and international school centre with young people and adults from many countries. It is situated outside of the small town Ulfborg, in the Midwest of Jutland. Our school centre consists of a number of schools. An alternative teacher training college . A boarding school for a mix of young adults - both with social and learning difficulties - and with surplus. And also an institution for adults who need special care. In total over 100 students and teachers are based here. We are also working in different ways with becoming self sufficient with food and energy. We grow a big part of our own vegetables, and we are the proud home of the once biggest wind-turbine in the world, built by students and teachers almost 40 years ago. In addition to this we have also recently got solar energy, and we are working with developing other projects for prevention of climate changes. We have many possibilities and facilities for sports and creative activities, such as a sports hall, a climbing wall, fitness centre, horses (in the summer time), football and beach volley field. During the year Tvind is host for a number of big cultural events with many guests coming to do sports, play theatre and listen to classical music. We also have not less than 3 hot-air balloons, but only one pilot. So for those who are very eager, it can be a possibility to join our ballooning team, who once in a while when the weather is good, take people flying around our local area. So as you can see, as a volunteer in our centre, in addition to the "work" there are many possibilities for involving yourself in activities you enjoy and we are also always happy for people taking initiatives to start new activities.
