Region: QuebecSince 1969, friends gather at our farm school. Girls and boys arrive from all corners of the world and take over the grounds. There are so many things to discover and to reinvent. One hundred acres of fields and forests, barns, an arts and crafts studio, a pool, a wooden tepee, 25 horses to ride and all sorts of animals to pet and feed. Our family is a mix of all ages, species and style. André the eternal educator who created the farm, Lucie who runs and feeds the house, Celine the veterinarian and Nicolas the Jack of all trades and their children, Cristobal 2 years old and Celia, 5 years old. There are also 2 donkeys, a cow, 4 sheep, 6 goats, 2 lamas, 2 alpacas, 2 pigs, hens, ducks and peacocks! We have a great life at the farm in this wonderful piece of earth, eating well, laughing and sharing. Cheers! Depuis 1969, garçons et filles viennent d'un peu partout dans le monde et s'emparent des lieux. Il y a tant de choses à découvrir et à réinventer: 34 hectares de champs et forêts, les granges, l'atelier d'art, la piscine, 25 chevaux à monter et tous ces animaux à nourrir et à caresser. Notre famille est un heureux amalgame de tous styles et espèces. André, le fondateur éternel éducateur, Lucie le chef gourmand, Céline la véto pour humains et animaux et Nicolas le pluripotent qui répare tout, et leur enfants, Cristobal 2 ans et Celia 5 ans. Il y a aussi 2 ânes, une vache, 4 moutons, 6 chèvres, 2 lamas, 2 alpagas, 2 cochons, des poules, des canards et 2 paons. Nous menons une vie extraordinaire dans ce coin magnifique de la Terre en mangeant bien, riant bien et en partageant une vie multi générationnelle, multiculturelle et multidimensionnelle ! A plus! .
Region: Veracruz, MexicoWe are Jim and Mindy Phypers. We have lived for the past seven years in two small, mountain villages in Veracruz. Our present village is very small, 600 very friendly people. We have tried to live simply and sustainably and to encourage others to do the same. Before coming here, we lived out in desert in Arizona and, with the help of many wonderful volunteers, built our own straw bale house, generated our own electricity with both solar and wind power, developed rain catchment and solar hot-water systems, and built a big greenhouse. While a move to the warmer and more temperate climate of Southern Mexico was necessary for health reasons as we got older, we have continued the same life style and were ´planning to establish an off-grid model Eco-community on undeveloped land two kilometers from our village in Veracruz. Sadly, however, Mafia activity in our general area has seen a dramatic increase recently, to the point that we no longer feel that it is safe to live here. We are in the process of packing up and moving to the Yucatán. There have been kidnappings and extortions in a town just two kilometers away and last week one of our neighbors and four of his family were taken away at gunpoint! We have been told by many people that Mafia activity like this does not exist in Yucatán, and it is considered one of the safest places to live in Mexico. We had originally thought that the Yucatán would be the best place for our new eco-community, but then found it very hard to leave the many special people in our village. We are not longer accepting Workawayers in Veracruz of course, but, OH, how we will be needing help once we arrive in the Yucatan and begin to establish the new community.

Region: Landkreis Rostock / Mittleres Mecklenburg / OstseeThis house is a small art project near the Baltic Sea and the Hanseatic town Rostock. You can come from February to October, please look in the calendar if there are bookings. Our place is not so far from Berlin or Hamburg with the railway ore bus to Rostock and it is on the way from Kopenhavn (or Sweden) to Berlin. In history, this house was a cheese factory, it´s about 120 years old. Inside the house is quite new and moulder. It’s realy in a village, surrounded by nature. Attention: It´s not a farm, it´s an social-art-project, around with a lot of heavy physical activitys (no visitors under 20 years, please). We are teacher, craftsmen, farmer, conservator and artist and we live in close proximity but not directly under one roof. We’re building some things with eco-materials in landscape like Playgrounds in the village, and special view points in the landscape. And we do practical things with the children of the primary school. You can help us in all practical matters. But you should also get some alone finished.
