Region: CenterWe are Ged and Karen, an English couple with a young daughter looking for a couple of able bodies and minds to help with a brand new project. Having lived around the world, from Moscow to Kuala Lumpur it is time to settle in one place for a while! We’ve had an amazing experience over the last year with workaways some of whom are I’m sure going to be friends for life! Our vision is to develop a mixed smallholding (pigs, sheep and poultry) with a small eco campsite. What we are starting with is a beautiful property (already renovated), three hectares (7 acres) of attached land, gorgeous views in the South of the Loire region and importantly a good stock of wine :) The property is a peaceful 4km bike ride from Neuvy-Saint-Sepulchre where you’ll find bars restaurants shops and a beautiful fishing lake. We are also very close to a bus route allowing access to the beautiful old towns of Aregnton-sur-Creuse (train station), Le Chatre and Chateauroux(train station). We are also located very close to the Brenne Nation Park, with its ‘thousand lakes’ and parkland it’s a nature lovers paradise.

Region: Malaga AndaluciaHello, we are Brian and Barbara . We are an easy going couple with a great sense of fun and need some help now. We retired from our hectic life in the UK in 2003 and came to live on this delapidated almond farm in a beautiful valley, 35 minutes from Malaga airport. We brought with us various animals, cats, dogs a rabbit and our collection of ducks, chickens, geese and turkeys. Since then we have lost some of them, but gained many more including 2 horses. We made many improvements to the property when we first arrived including installing electricity, drains and water as well as turning what was a four roomed empty building into our now nice home. We did pretty well all of this ourselves. We continue to work on the place improving and updating. Projects for the future are building a stone wall and creating an area where we are able to foster abandoned dogs waiting for a home. The ongoing project at the moment is to build a small double stable for the horses Our next major project is to clear a further paddock of rocks and scrub so we can plough it and sow seed to produce good forage for the 2 rescue horses. And this is where we need help!
Region: samaipatahi friends volunteers from march to August 2013 we want a brake :)... we will travel, too!!!! so, we don´t receive volunteers in this periode... thank`s and will see us again in september 2013 good luck on your trip!!!! cristi udo and aoni We are Cristina and Udo, a young family of Chilean-German globetrotter, with our two years old son Aoni. Recently, we decided to stay and live here in Bolivia, three hours from the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, in a beautiful town called Samaipata(16oo m). This is a lovely place surrounded by high mountains in a nice canyon. We are above to the archaeological ruins “El fuerte" and Amboro National Park, with a very nice warm weather almost all year. Our farm is 5 km by the asphalted road from the village of Samaipata, at the foot of the archaeological ruins. We have a original old forest and our farm-beach is a beautiful river by the jungle. We are starting several projects like our family garden, a photography studio, a climbing-school and work-shops related to renewable energy (sun and water), such as heaters, solar driers and Sauna, and anything that enable independent life from the system as possible. We want that this space is going to be a place of exchange experiences, open for those who like nature, the earth, the fire and the simple life :) and support with initiative and creativity these projects. Somos Cristina y Udo, una familia joven trotamundos chileno-alemana,con nuestro hijo Aoni de dos años de edad. Hace poco tiempo, hemos decidido quedarnos a vivir acá en Bolivia, a tres horas de la ciudad de Santa Cruz de la Sierra, en un hermoso pueblo que se llama Samaipata(16oo m). Este es un lugar rodeado de altas montañas que albergan las ruinas arqueolicas de "el fuerte" y el Parque Nacional Amboro, con un clima cálido muy agradable casi todo el año. Nuestra propiedad está a 5 km por carretera asfaltada del pueblo de Samaipata, y a los pies de las ruinas arqueológicas. Aquí tenemos bosque autóctono y nuestro patio es un hermoso rio selvático. En este lugar estamos iniciando nuestro huerto familiar, un atelier de fotografía, una Escuela de escalada y trabajos relacionados con energías renovables (sol y agua), como: calentadores, deshidratadores y Sauna solares, y todo lo que pueda servir para vivir autónomos del sistema al máximo posible. Queremos que este espacio sea un lugar de intercambio de experiencias, abierto a quienes les guste la naturaleza, la tierra, la fogata y la vida simple :) y tengan iniciativa y creatividad para trabajar, apoyar y compartir estos proyectos.
Region: ANTALYAHello, Thank you very much for your visiting our profile.

My wife Ebru and I (Aydin) run an Eco Camp offering Yoga, Organic Farming, Art Work-shops, Trekking and Sea Activities. I am a Painter, photographer who is the member of UNESCO. My wife is an architect and we are both Yoga teachers (Indian Yoga Istitute of Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana). Our garden and lands serified by NOP CERT Organic Certification Group. Our place, is a restored old stone house and surrounding grounds in a modest and remote area of the Ancient Lycian Way. We are located in a Village which has an altitude of 500 meters and is within the Ancient Lycian Site of Phellos. Our place is a 15 minute drive to the sea in our nearest town of Kas. Kas is set upon a hillside in the Southern region of Turkey in the district of Antalya. The town is famous for it's ancient Lycian history and today boasts a small but lively fishing, yachting and tourist town. During peak season, when we have guests, we normally conduct a weekly program that runs from Sunday through to Saturday afternoon, where there are a variety of different activities, for example, one day we may base our focus in the Art-Workshop and another may be devoted to Cultural Hiking. We usually like to go swimming in the sea after our programs. Our days start with morning Yoga, and should the Guests and / or Volunteers be interested they are more than welcome to join in. (However, during this time, someone will be required to prepare the breakfast and help to organise the garden dining area where breakfast is served. Like with other activities, our Volunteers tend to work on a rotation basis, thus allowing everyone a chance to participate.) We are happy to include you on our hiking, yoga, sea activities and art workshops on your time/day off (while this time you can discover Kas and the neighbouring sights), However during the times when we do not have guests we regret that these cannot always be possible. We remain at all times a working Eco Farm and therefore the general running and maintainance of the camp must always take priority. Here, we all work as a team. Volunteers will be expected to assist us with gardening, hoeing, plantinig vegetable-sapling, harvesting-pruning vagetable, grape,olives, almonds.. making vineger, olives, organising woods - rocks, building, cleaning and helping around the house etc.. whatever need in the garden; work is varied.. Normally we have a work schedule every day (that starts at 7:40 with breakfast / 8:20 in summer). We need this to make sure that all things have some order and there is no chaos. During peak season there might be busy around (volunteers and guests) so having a schedule keeps everyone happy. Our work is about 5.45 to 6 hours a day. There is one day off after work 6 days a week. During your day off, you can also visit Kas and the neighbouring sights. Kas is accessible by shuttle in 15 minutes, though volunteers will need to walk 1 km to the bus stop. We have all our meals together. Our food are mostly vegetarian . We offer volunteers 3 meals per day and a share room with bed separate toilet and shower facilities.(couples stay on their own room if we have room and sometimes volunteer stay in a tent only if we be so crowed ), We are serving the same food that we normally eat and we can offer what's on the table; We do not preper/serv privatly gluten-free, raw food and vegan diet meals but If you have specific food requirements you are welcome to purchase these in town and store them in our fridge (Please do not buy items for which you need the kitchen to prepare.). We conduct a non-smoking, no-drugs place, and welcome volunteers who respect and appreciate our way of life here. A TYPICAL DAY OF WORK: Work is varied depending on the seasons and the weather..
