Région: UlsterWe are the McDonnell family - Tony, Caroline and our two young sons Oisin and Ronan. We live a little over a mile from Arvagh which is a small town on the Cavan/Longford border. We have opened a small tourist hostel- 32 beds and are trying to grow our own vegetables etc. We need help in the garden and in the house and especially with the new small pony that we just bought for our boys. Help to teach the boys how to look after it, train it and ride it. This is a beautiful scenic area. We have bikes which you can use to explore the local area and a few kayaks for the sunny days. We have a dog, donkey, cat, hens and rooster.
Région: Baden-WürttembergHey Guys, we already have a lot of helpers this summer, so I ask you not to send any requests at the moment. Tank you! We are three university students who decided to stop just talking about things and to start doing them. Here, at the beautiful lake Constance, we are building and creating a place of possibilities. A place for personal growth combined with political discussions and action and living sustainable in harmony with nature. A place for workshops from the people of the area for the people of the area, for discussion rounds, cinema evenings, second hand markets, the possibility for schoolclases to come around to learn and help and there will be a little coffee etc. at one point. At the moment we are renovation three old and beautiful Gypsy caravans to live in. The caravans are situated under apple trees on a horse farm only five bike minutes away from lake Constance. We have got an outdoor kitchen (with roof), a yurt with couches where we sit with friends around bonfires in the evening, telling stories, talking about everything that comes to mind or watching a movie. There is a compost toilette a cold shower (but you can take the bike to the university building (3 min.) where you will find a warm one (the building is open 24h)) We try to live as sustainable as possible, so we mainly eat organic food at the best bought from farmers in the neighbourhood.
Région: Massachusetts coast, USAOpen Dates: March 2015 and beyond My husband and I live in a large 1899 shingle-style New England seacoast home which we are continually renovating / restoring. We like to meet new people and share our cool home with interesting guests - friends, language home-stay students, and, recently, some B&B guests in the summer. Our other time commitments and sometimes not-so-gently-aging bodies limit our ability to keep up with general cleaning, maintenance, and gardening tasks, and we'd be happy to host someone in our desirable beach town in exchange for help with these tasks and with maintenance "projects" indoors & out. We have an elderly cat who is not allowed outside. We are both longtime technology workers. I work at home doing consulting, project management and technical writing and have done ESL tutoring for many guests. My husband went to MIT and is a software engineer who works in Cambridge, MA. We are about 14 miles north of Boston. Note: Absolutely no smoking allowed on the property.

Elisabeth & Trygve are in the fifties, and have a lot of experience from different jobs and ways of living. We are Christian Protestants, but accept you as you are. We are not vegetarians but accept your way of living and practising. Anders Christian is our son at 28 years old and live at the farm, but working outside.Aga and Maciej, thirtyes, lives with us, with their baby. Tone Elisabeth, our daughter is 32 years old and lives with her 2 sons at 3 and 5, and her partner Christian in their house in Levanger. At the farm we are now in need of craftsmen, and people who are used to practical work. We altso need housekeeper. We prefer people who want to stay for a longer period,.Minimum 6 weeks NB NB. We live in rural area, and do not have a lot of contact outside the farm. It is 5 km til the nearest gasstation and supermarked. 35 km to the nearest city.

Région: Baden-WürttembergA big hello from the southern part of germany. My name is Nicole, I´m 34 years old and I have two wonderful daughters, named Carolina (8) and Franziska (nearly 4). I work as a teacher at a bilingual primary school. I studied math, art and home economics and textile (like stitching or crocheting). I love to do different creative things and make trips and excursions with my family (zoo, parc, museum, theatre, meet friends, climbing garden, castle… and so on). We live in a very nice area very close to Mannheim and Heidelberg city (maybe you know the Heidelberg castle? It´s very famous). You can also reach Frankfurt in about 30 minutes by train. Sometimes we make excursions to palatinate forest and forest of odes or to Alsace. We want to take the chance to broaden our horizon, meet new people and improve our english. Maybe the children can also learn some english words or sentences ;) Maybe you can play an instrument? That would be great... Attention, it is possible that we move in a few months, so we can only accept short-term volunteers. (at the moment I´m searching for volunteers for the months september/october)
