Région: New BrunswickWe have a hobby farm that is hour away from Fredericton, the capital city of New Brunswick. We are a "youngish" retired couple who are enjoying revitalizing our farm and taking care of our three horses. The farm is 200 acres a combination of forest and cleared pastures with a barn, out buildings and an indoor riding arena. There are also trails through our property and others properties next to us that the horses can be ridden on. We have been gradually renovating and restoring the buildings on the property as well as expanding the pastures for the horses. What we need is a bit of help. With several projects on the go there are lots of things to do. When you are not helping out here on the farm New Brunswick offers many opportunities to enjoy nature and it's coastline. Hiking, camping, and whale watching are a few things you can participate in while staying here in New Brunswick. A good site to visit to see some of what is available to do in New Brunswick is their tourism site. . Quebec to the west and Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia to the east are close enough to take time to visit as well.
Région: Languedoc RoussillonHi there! Would you like to help us to restore and renovate an old property in the beautiful mediaeval town of Pezenas in Mediterranean France? ABOUT YOU AND THE ROLE We're looking for fit young volunteers aged 18-30 who have enthusiasm and who are happy to do physical work. This will involve some of the following: building, plumbing, electrical, plastering, woodwork, stonework, roofing, painting. If you have some experience of any of these then that’s great! If you have little or no experience, but are an enthusiastic and happy person, physically fit and prepared to do anything, then you can learn a lot from us and our master builder on this project. TIMESCALES: We're looking for two new volunteers from NOW or in the next few weeks and we can't plan too far in advance. If you can't arrive for some months, please don't contact us yet. Minimum stay of two weeks, longer stays are welcome. We start early but finish early in the afternoon, leaving you time to yourselves after that. There are lots of opportunities to explore the region. When volunteers have to move on, we need new guys to replace them. We're looking for one or two new volunteers to start now! Unfortunately we can’t accept two people travelling together, sorry, because then they leave together which can cause us difficulties in replacing two people at the same time. ABOUT US AND THE PROJECT If you got involved, you’d be able to say you were part of the restoration of a mediaeval French property and that you helped to return it to its former glory! I'm Sara, originally from Budapest, and my husband is originally from London. We’re friendly people, fully integrated into French life and our friends are mostly French. We run a small tourism business here in the Mediterranean area of the South of France. This includes things like villa accommodation, canal boat holidays, wine tours, kayaking, pleasure flights, day trips, history tours, horseriding, etc. Kind regards, Sara
Région: L'viv, Halitskiy District, L'viv'ska OblastABOUT ME: I am an apprentice of... everything. I have a very bizarre resume which I'm particularly proud of, and a checkered past that reflects my profound interest in a wide variety of disciplines, activities, places and cultures. This makes writing short auto-biographies very difficult, especially since I generally dislike talking about myself. However, for the purpose of my future workaway guests, I'll do my best to oblige with a description. I grew up in a military family and served for many years with the Army, raised with old school values of honor, integrity, loyalty, and duty. Although I've never been very keen on hierarchy and structure, I learned a lot from my upbringing about staying true to your self and values above all else. To me, life is about three things - 1) Becoming stronger. 2) Becoming smarter. 3) Sharing your strength and wisdom with others. To that end - I like to stay active, try new things, learn as much as possible and then build relationships with good people that have a similar mentality as I do. I think it's important to surround yourself with positive thinkers and a supportive community if you want to achieve your goals, and I think programs like workaway do a good job of building such communities. MY ORGANIZATION: I'm a language teacher (English/Russian), living in L'viv, Ukraine, and I both work in and run my own language learning program. Languages are my passion, and I take great pleasure in helping people improve their communication skills. I've been in the business for two years, and have learned and developed quite a bit. My greatest goal is to bring quality language instruction to the local community and those interested in investing in L'viv and Ukraine as a whole. I take my work very seriously and truly believe that language development and social learning is the key to integrating into a culture. For more information regarding our organization, please message me and I'll send you the necessary details.
