Area: ConnachtWe (Carmel and Julian) live about 1.5 km from the village of Clarinbridge in south Co Galway close to the main Galway-Limerick road. There are buses to Galway/Limerick every hour. Our house is .5km from Atlantic ocean, and 15km from Galway city. Our family is one parent (female) and one child (male, 11 years) and we live in a timber house with a garden. There is always plenty of maintenance jobs to do, both inside and outside. We would like the person to feel comfortable with us, share meals (help with preparation as well) and also feel that they have their own private space as well. Due to an unexpected cancellation, we are looking for someone (or couple) from 8.4.14-26.4 for gardening and maintenance work. Experience important and able to work on own initiative! Workaways from all cultures are welcome, particularly those who are happy to share their favourite recipes, songs, stories ... with us. Our home is a non-smoking space!
Area: AlgarveWe are a family of three (Christin, Anton & 6-year old Matthew). We are trying to "keep the dream alive" of living in the Algarve and enjoying this beautiful and peaceful place. We have started a small tourism business near Aljezur offering accomodation, jeep tours, bike tours & rental, walking tours and surfboard/wetsuit hire. We are therefore looking for help in various areas of our everyday lives and need people/couples to apply for volunteering with us. Ideally volunteers will need to be 25 years or older and pretty fit as we may need you to do manual work or join in on tours such as bicycle or walking. The age is important as you may be required to drive a car.

Area: OregonHi, We are a long established family here on the Central Oregon Coast and we have a BIG old dairy barn that we need help restoring. The long term goal is to turn this barn and surrounding property into an Arts, Culture and Ecology Center where people can come to learn, teach, make, share and enjoy! We are located in beautiful, deep and forested valley with a creek flowing through it. The valley is just inland from a small, rural beach community that is bordered by a huge, rocky and old-growth forest covered headland to the South, grassy beach dunes and estuary to the North and the wild Coast Mountain Range to the East. The beach is very long and not at crowded. It is a place where you can walk along the sea for hours and often only meet seagulls, sea lions and sea shells. However, there are a few busy weekends every year when many people come to soak up the Sun, fly kites, participate in the Independence Day parade and sandcastle building contest. We are looking for responsible, friendly and easy going people to come help out for a minimum of 2 weeks. In exchange for your help we can offer comfortable accommodations and a couple meals a day. Your hosts and principle owners are a married couple who are well established artists, teachers and local art gallery owners. Along with them there is an extended family of artists (including a 95 year old artist/Grandmother whose painting studio is located in the barn) and crafts people who will be helping out from time to time as well on the project. Please have a look at the pictures below (more photos coming soon!) to get an idea of the accommodations and the surrounding area. Thanks for having a look at our profile, if you have any questions please write, and... Hope to hear from you soon. Happy Travels!
