Région: ScotlandWe are a couple in our 50's,looking for active person or couple to stay & work at our property to help us with the everyday work & chores on the Farm, together with some building/maintenance projects. We are looking for active person or couple to workaway, from 7th July 2014 to 31st October 2014, or thereabouts. During this period we should also like take the opportunity to get away in our Motorhome during this period for a break. Our Property is a Farmhouse with 60 acres of land, pasture for grazing & silage, woodland, & two CF20kw Wind turbines. We are situated near the East coast of Aberdeenshire, with access to many interesting places. We have sadly lost our best friend & companion (German Shepherd Dog) called Max to a terrible condition called CDRM on the 5th October 2013, so now only have an outdoor cat called Yum-Yum, who is adorable & friendly.
Région: CataloniaHi. Hubby, son and I live with our 3 dogs in a beautiful rural area of Catalonia surrounded by mountains in an eco friendly house that we built ourselves. Our farm is around 8 acres (40,000 sq metres) growing predominantly Olives (harvested in the wintertime) and Carobs (harvested in the summertime). At present our garden is a work in progress but it is our aim to grow as much of our own food as possible in the very near future. Our home lies not far from the River Ebro where giant cat fish swim and wait for you to try your hand at catching them. During March/April you can watch dozens of birds of prey circling our home in an aerial display which will leave you breathless. The Ebro Delta lies 45 minutes from our home where you will see Egrets going about their business, Storks and Herons abound and if you are very lucky you may see a turtle or two climb onto the beach to lay their eggs. Wild Boar roam the mountainsides as do Wild Goats there is even a few Wild Deer hereabouts and we have been lucky enough to see a couple early one morning. Historical sites surround our home and the beach is but a short drive (45 minutes) so your free time need not be spent on the farm. Barcalona is but a couple of hours on the train north of here where the fantastic sights, architecture, culture and atmosphere will blow your mind! And for the big kids in us all Portaventura and Salou are about an hour away. France is but a short hop, whilst Ferries to Italy can be caught in Barca for those of you who wish to combine your stay with us in with a trip around Europe.
Région: Mecklenburg-VorpommernWe are a private trekking yard in the lake-lands region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Hamburg and Berlin can be reached in 1,5 hours drive. We offer trails and hacks on a part-time basis in the beautiful surrounding countryside. We have four Irish-bred horses, two cats and a dog. Our small farm is situated in a little village surrounded by large forests and very close to a lake. The nearest towns for shopping are 7 km away. We love animals and two of our horses and our dog are rescue animals. I have worked in animal rescue for a number of years. The house is a red brick building typical for this area. The barn is attached to the house. The person coming to us should like rural and quiet living in beautiful countryside and should have some previous experience with horses. I am fluent in English (lived in Ireland for 8 years) and its no problem if you have no German.
Région: India, RajasthanWe are a grassroots organization working for village youth education, basic health and hygiene. We are also supporting other causes like helping HIV patients and homeless people with serious mental and physical disabilities. We are looking for people who are interested in participating in our cultural exchange program as well as volunteering for our foundation as a teacher assistant working with HIV positive children. Because of the educational nature of the volunteering placement, we favor volunteers with previous relevant experience that can benefit both the foundation and volunteers. We also need someone who can market our guest house which is a source of funding for our rural youth education and awareness centers. This later role is now developing into a busy PR/Online Representative role necessary for both our guest house and youth centers. The volunteers mostly work 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week. Depending on the placement, a typical day includes online research in relation to projects, travel time to centers and actual field work. Volunteers can work longer hours if they wish. However, we encourage people to take necessary leisure time to relax and enjoy what their environment has got to offer. At any point of time we can have a group of 4 to 6 people. We can place them on different projects mostly volunteering with children education, health and recreation activities. We prefer volunteers who stay for a period of minimum few weeks. However, if someone wishes to come for lesser time, then we consider them as visitors and share with them our work, vision and dreams. Visitors are expected to support volunteers on projects for the youth centers and/or coordinate with the guest house manager by looking after participants of our cultural exchange program.
