Region: Natural Parc of Morvan - Burgundy - departement of Saône et Loire - About 25km south from the town of Autun - An hour drive from Chalon sur Sâone - 1h45 drive from Dijon, the capital of BurgundyWe are living , my partner Tony (from Liverpool) and I (Claire, french) on a family land in south of Morvan, a granitic area at the heart of Burgundy, part of the natural parc of Morvan. The place, and the village are very special for it's one of the 3 bigger granitic areas of France, so the natural site is classified and protected. The main interest is nature, hiking (300km of path from us), fishing... The nearest village with shops is at 10km ; there is a bar-restaurant just nearby. there are many places of interest about an hour's radius drive: the roman Autun, the medieval abbey and town of Cluny, the Celts capital Bibracte, Chalon on the Saône river...and of course Beaune, Nuits-Saint- Georges and the wine area... Our place is quiet big (10 hectares of fields - 10 hectares of forests), with several buildings, spring water, fresh air, wild birds and animals... A farmer is actually taking care of the fields. We came back in my birth area only a year and an half ago, after long trips around the world and many different experiences. This land here is beautiful, strong and rough (due to the granite and the relatively high altitude for the area - 680m), with a big potential to be developed about agriculture (we already have a reasonably big permaculture garden and plan to have bees soon) but also about handicraft (Claire is creating cloths, hats, bags...from recycled fabrics and is selling them on markets since 5 years; a local shop is to be developed soon and partnership with other artisans is on its way ). There is also a bread oven here to be refitted and putted back to use. And when we don't work on all that, we play music together (irish songs and folk rock...) or paint ! Our plan is to turn this place into an eco-village which could welcome and home several people, for short or long, eventually very long term...depending of the feeling ! It's a good opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous nature around, learn about gardening, and life close to nature, enjoy to prepare nice preservation and specialties from the garden, or help tony on his building projects...and join the band for music playing at night , after a good meal !

Region: OkinawaSix months of the year I live in a small Okinawan fishing and farming village and run a two room guest house with my long time friend Sayori San. We need help with the gardening and the house cleaning and can offer one or two people their own bedroom upstairs. We can help you learn Japanese language and culture. I can take you around the island snorkeling, hiking, biking, shopping, paragliding, surfing, kayaking, eating etc. I hope you are interested! I love company. A note about Rural Okinawan Culture: This community is not a modern urban Japanese community. When I am in residence I must change my behavior and my clothing in order to be accepted and not cause trouble for my hosts. While the independent western woman I am rolls my eyes at such things as wearing the right shaped bra and always covering my crotch such that the outline never shows (as would happen if I were to tuck my shirt into my pants), I adopt an attitude of learning from the culture I am visiting rather than insisting on my right to dress and act in total freedom. If you were to decide to stay with us, there will be an on going conversation about how your actions are perceived by your hosts community. In addition, people under the age of 20 are still considered children, minors, in Japan. You are not allowed to drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, drive cars, vote or make life decisions such as engagement for marriage until you are 20. Thus, workaway volunteers younger than 20 will find their activities here even more restricted than those older than 20. Having said all of that, Okinawa is really interesting and may very well steal your heart. It is one of the few places in the world where women run the religion as documented in Susan Sered's book "Women of the Sacred Groves: Divine Priestesses of Okinawa" If you have an interest in a society that is fundamentally different than your own, our village is one place where you can observe that difference. It will open your mind. Plus, Okinawa is drop dead gorgeous and the people will treat you like family right after you meet.
Region: AragonRob: I grew up spending summers on my great aunt’s farm in Poland, a lifestyle I loved and yearned for myself. After meeting and marrying Emma, we bought a house in the British countryside, grew our own vegetables and had chickens, it just seemed right that we should follow our dreams and commit fully to the life we both wanted. Keen on traditional building techniques I am looking forward to restoring the masia and building a traditional stone bread oven. Emma: An artist, traveller and teacher wanting to set down roots and live a simple life in tune with nature. Having studied architecture I wanted to be able to design my own home in a way that worked with nature rather than against it. This farm and artist retreat has been my dream for as long as I can remember; it was just a matter of when and where it would happen. Stanley: I’m a gorgeous great big teddy bear of a dog and important part of the family. One of my parents was a poodle and the other a labrador, making me an awesome mix of the two. I love meeting and playing with other dogs, children and adults, so I’m happy for any of you to bring your humans with you to stay with us. The Farm: The large stone masia, (farm house) set on top of the reef with valleys either side, surrounded by tree covered hills. There are beautiful olive and almond groves, wild flowers and herbs, golden eagles sore overhead and all of this near to the famous Sea of Caspe. We will be farming organically working towards organic certification. As well as the olive and almond groves we will be planting fruit trees and having a vegetable patch in order to provide as much of our own produce as possible. We will also have chickens and hopefully in the future goats and pigs.
Region: Estado de MéxicoMe and my husband are in our early fifties, with 3 sons aged 21, 18 and 11. I am the owner and manager of a small hotel that was formerly our family house, in the city center of Valle de Bravo, a "pueblo magico" (magic city) one hour and a half west from Mexico City. We offer 13 rooms, a beautiful garden, jacuzzis, massages and a temazcal. All this with a 3 star level for medium range prices. I have been working with many volunteers for 5 years since we started this project and I really think the hotel wouldn't have achieved what it is today without them! Today we need some more help with the skills described in the "Help" paragraph.
