Area: North Rhine WestphaliaI try to live a spiritual and more alternative life including daily meditation. I try to take my food out of the land and I am also a practicing freegan. I live in a very old small Village 50 km south west of Cologne. Nearly 4 years ago I decided to leave the big city life to start a more natural way of being. My place is a little ancient farm with a very beautiful land containing a little stream, source, fishponds, little forest, vegetable garden... even if it’s still chaotic and messy I love this tiny piece of earth. For one year I have run this place alone and so i really appreciate helping hands. The jobs are varied and diverse, From finishing the summer kitchen (with straw bales and clay), building the bread oven, constructing of a small garden house, help in the veggie garden, working on the fishponds, building stone walls, renovating the 400 year old farmhouse, help in the kitchen, help me with my two amazing little daughters who are sometimes here, building a new barn, help in the violin workshop...in fact changing chaos into paradise. I try to use as much as possible ecological materials like sheep wool isolation, clay walls, wood frame constructing, stone walls...... For me as host it’s not simply looking for helping hands, I like to share my house, lifestyle, dreams, knowledge and enjoying the time together. I like to cook together, singing round the campfire and all this hippi stuff. I have already had more than 70 workawayers, helpers and woofers, and my experience shows me that I prefer People above 21, who have no problems with breakfast at 9:00, and see themselves as open minded, spiritual, Rainbow people, colourful, easy going... About my self: I am a Master Violin Maker and Music therapist i have a love for ancient methods and skills and try to grow my vegetables in a biodynamic, permaculture style including the rhythm of the moon. Further i am busy with different natural and shamanic healing and tantric traditions. I love making music, joining rainbow gatherings,.... Living here is very basic. Depending on the number of helpers it can happen that you have to share a room with other workawayers Workaway for me, is a great opportunity to invite the world to my little place and to help me realise my dream of a more sustainable life. Without all the helping hands i wouldn’t be able. It’s for me a matter of sharing and I really like to host people.
Area: Midi PyreneesHi. We are Simon and Linda and having toured France as Workawayers ourselves, we have now sold up in the UK and bought our dream house on the banks of the river Aveyron in the Tarn region. It is in a very rural location but only 20 mins or so away from 3 of the most beautiful mediaeval towns in France....Cordes sur Ciel/Najac/St Antonin Noble Val. The city of Toulouse is about an hour and a quarter away and Albi, the pink city and birthplace of Toulouse Lautrec (great museum there) is 45 mins away. Gorgeous scenery, river gorges and quaint villages abound here! You can relax by the river and maybe even go biking and canoeing (if we buy one in time!!) Our rescue dog Tara is always ready and willing to show you the surrounding countryside. We are easy-going, love music and dancing (so if you play guitar you are welcome to use our Takamine) but please bear in mind that this is a very rural placement, so if you are looking for bright lights and nightlife, this really isn't for you. Simon is pretty good with his building skills (he makes yurts too!) while Linda is a holistic therapist and reiki practitioner who speaks pretty fluent French. We are both happy to pass on these skills wherever possible. Having been Workawayers ourselves, I think we will be good hosts....certainly food will be tasty and plentiful and you will be made very welcome.

Area: British ColumbiaFour generations of our extended family live here at Blind Channel, a secluded spot on West Thurlow Island, on the central BC coast. This 40-acre property was in former times a large community of workers in the logging and fishing industries. Those times are past, and now we strive to make a sustainable lifestyle here providing services to tourists in the summer and transportation and accommodations for workers year-round. We generate our own power, get our fresh water from a spring, and generally do everything for ourselves. We have a store, a restaurant, a post office, a fuel dock, laundry building, a cottage, and a large vegetable garden. We are working to enhance the beauty of our property and develop more ways for people to have fun when they come to visit us here in paradise. Some of our future projects will be to add more accommodations in the form of more cottages, to improve our laundry facilities, to build an exercise room with a hot tub, and eventually construct a lodge. We also would like to add a water power system, possibly in sync with solar power in summer. Our garden needs a new shed, a greenhouse, and maybe a little family of chickens. One thing is for sure, we are never without ideas of what we could do next.
