Région: Midi PyreneesHello General gardening and sprucing up of the house would be much appreciated. I'm just back after some months away. The house and garden have been well cared for in my absence but there is some maintenance to do in both. Perhaps a bit of garden furniture painting and I'd really appreciate some help and ideas in the garden. This is a lovely quiet, very rural area of France set in a Parc Naturel Regional. Someone with a car would be able to make the most of it but I am prepared to give some time showing helpers around. The house is about two minutes' walk from nearest village with a tucked away bar and bistro and it's 5 km along beautiful crest walk to a much bigger neighbouring village. You'll have your own room with ensuite shower room, plus good food and local wine.I'm willing to accept a couple.
Région: Sydney, Northern BeachesWe are a couple living right next Bungan Beach on Sydney's northern beaches. We have several properties next to each other which we are working at transforming into a lush abundant permaculture garden. Richard works hard in an office job most of the time and Jayatma helps around the edges with that while busily creating our garden. We have so far have chickens, a great vegie patch, an aquaponics set up, a 'tropical garden' and are moving soon onto creation of the wild orchard and bush tucker native nibbledom and nectary! We are easy going people, don't watch much TV, don't smoke or drink. We ONLY take helpers who are happy with NOT smoking or drinking while they stay with us. We eat very healthily, mostly vegetarian, non-processed etc, we purchase almost all food from organic sources. We prefer helpers who eat in a similar way or are happy to help prepare this kind of food.
Région: IbarraThe farm is located in a subtropical area (1 000 meters altitude) between Ibarra and the coastal town of San Lorenzo. Since 1995 I have been reforesting a hillside, badly eroded and depleted of topsoil. Permaculture principles are applied in order to create a food forest, consisting of many different species. A special focus is given on palms and bamboo, for example the Acai palm and the Giant Bamboo. I recently bought more land upriver, adjoining the existing 15 hectares I restored until now. The work to be done consists in clearing weeds and bush, digging holes, planting trees and digging irrigation swales. Also, taking care of the pineapple, arazá and pitahaya plants. My name is Piet Sabbe, I am Belgian and live in the farm with my two daughters Naomi and Maykin, who go to school in the local village.
Région: Mirca, Brač Island, CroatiaHello! We are Tamara (also a Worker and now a Host, too!) and Ani, her mother. We finally started working on a piece of land that Ani inherited from her family. As the land is not meant for construction, we have decided to buy a 2-bedroom, second-hand mobile home (Adria MSE811, fully-equipped) and use the land to plant olive trees, lemons, pomegranates and create it into a little peaceful and relaxing holiday place and hopefully a holiday rental place in the near future. We are literally starting from scratch here. We have spent this spring and summer digging up the soil, crushing rocks, digging holes for septic tank and water tank. We will install solar panels for energy, septic tank instead of sewers and a water tank for water supply. PLEASE NOTE: Currently, the land is still empty, the mobile home is arriving in September, and then we'll have to connect the water tank and septic tank to the house, as well as dig out holes for olive trees. We will use electric generator until we get solar panels installed. So realistically, we can't accept anyone before October.
Région: ZagrebWe are young couple with no children living just outside Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. We have a house and a garden. The house is partly still under construction (so is the garden, too :-). I work mostly at home as film editor, and my girlfriend works in Zagreb as dance teacher. We like nature, sailing and laughing. When it comes to people, we really appreciate honest, cheerful and simple folk. We are vegetarians and non-smokers.
