Area: East Mountains, New Mexico, USAWe are a uncomplicated family of 3, I'm originally from Switzerland, hubby from here, and Teenage daughter, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 rabbits, and chickens. We have a pretty big garden. We enjoy working and improving our environment. We like to do all of the work ourselves. We build a alternative passive Solar house from scratch, and it's not a square box, north side has 3 circles with different dimensions, mostly out of Adobe. We live on the bottom of a 12'000 foot mountain, elevation here is 7000 feet (2000m) We love art, music, being creative, alternative Architecture, Interior Design, organic gardening, Active/passive Solar energy, recycling, re-using, simple, mindful, harmonies living. Living kind of ''outside the box''. We are used to and enjoy living with other people. We are looking for energetic, positive, honest, communicative people, that can contribute to our lives (and visa versa) learning from each other. Room and board. At the moment we are constructing a new Greenhouse (that just got finished, thanks to all of you that came to help!!) and now a bathroom. At the moment, we are looking for someone (if possible, but not necessary) with basic plumbing, electric and construction experience. We love color, and being creative when building. Input always welcome. In the future, we are hoping to start building another house, (hopefully it will end to be an Earth house) and we will be needing a lot of help. We are still in the planning stages, could use help with design, ideas and drawings, and later construction. We have a good sized guestroom for you. It is important to find a good match. Do not like flaky, unreliable, dishonest people! Would prefer long term, 1- 3 month, trial base a week or so, to see how well we live and match together.

Area: IdrijaWe are 2 adults with a beautiful Hungarian Puli dog, oh and 40 Indian runner ducks. We're easy going, fun loving but also hard working. Paul is 51 and an artist, writer and IT consultant who also loves working with wood. I am 46 year old psychologist. After hectic life in London we moved to Slovenia in hope to live a better life and take time to enjoy what we are doing. We bought an old house 5 years ago here in Slovenia and have worked very hard bringing it back to life. We are currently building a a retaining wall from tyres and soon, hopefully this summer, we'll be building a pizza oven and solar kiln (for drying wood). At the same time we are trying to rejuvenate our forest which has not been touched for 20 years. The house and grounds will be used for art workshops as well as events and seminars. Help is needed with building our eco-wall, gardening, maintaining the newly planted orchard as well as the old trees, taking care of the forest, building the wall. In return we offer meals, clothes washing facilities, a very comfortable double bed and bathroom but if you’d prefer to stay outdoors in own or our tent there is also plenty of space available in our 2.5 hectares of land. There are plenty of historic sites and places of outstanding natural beauty in the area including wonderful lakes, rivers and waterfalls. We are happy to receive help from couples or singles, smokers or non-smokers and although we are not vegetarians ourselves we are happy to prepare you vegetarian meals if required.

Area: OntarioSet in the rolling hills of Northumberland County, our 120 acre farm is a mixture of field, forest, meadow and wetland with a beautiful view of Lake Ontario in the distance. We bought the farm in the fall of 2012 and we now have one year under our belts. We moved to the country to live a more peaceful and self-sustainable existence, closing the gap between field and table. We grow and raise our food using organic and permaculture principles learned through our travels around the world and we buy from local farmers as well. We are a community farm opening up our doors to those who want to get closer to the land but might not have access to it. We offer cooking classes, venues for events, walking trails, shared land use and permaculture consultation. We also have a farm store on site open weekends offering goods from our farm as well as our neighbours. Our farm has a communal atmosphere with everyone gathering together at meal times to cook, share stories, strategize and get to know one another. When we traveled we loved working as volunteers side by side with people from all over the world so last year we ended up hosting 13 amazing volunteer workers!
