Área: EnglandGlastonbury is a funky, unusual and interesting little town community, set in the midst of beautiful Somerset Levels in the wonderful west-country countryside. I am now only looking for someone with carpentry skills to do a few carpentry jobs here. I have a nice flat which is on 2 levels with a loft-conversion. There are 4 of us living here already. 2 friendly people in the downstairs part, a young lady and an older man, who share a kitchen and bathroom. And I live upstairs in the loft with my son who is 8 and is here about half the time. We are fairly quiet here, and this is not a loud party house. The flat is 5-10 minutes walk into the centre of town. I work from home some of the time: I am interested in what is involved in making a transition to living more sustainably, and how people can work together to do this. For my work I have delivered the Transition Training and courses to help people work together better in groups when doing such Transition work I also work with something called Holacracy which is a way of organising that is beyond hierarchy and helps organisations adapt and evolve. And I also work in schools too. I’m fairly well travelled, having been to India, Israel, Egypt, around Europe, around the US, Brazil and Mexico and a few countries in Africa. I really enjoy meeting people from other cultures. Glastonbury is a really great little town, home to the famous Glastonbury festival which happens 7 miles away. It’s a famous place of pilgrimage for people from many different faiths and there is always a lot going on in the town for music, workshops, pubs, cafes, workshops of all descriptions and other events. Its known for an interesting, colourful and diverse mixture of people here. There are bus connections to the major towns of Bristol, Bath, Taunton etc and you can catch trains to London and other places from any of these places or Castle Cary, which you can also get a bus to.
Área: North CarolinaThis is the farm's 4th year hosting volunteers. Fifteen countries represented, and over 100 folks visiting, all have helped make the farm a better place. Looking forward to another year of great helpers! Now accepting volunteers for 2015...all months after Aug 2014 are available.....Autumn and winter months are slow times on the farm and the need for volunteers is reduced to no more than 2 persons at a time... **for folks who wish to learn about farming methods, it would be better for you to apply during the spring and summer months** ...see ya soon!!! Located in the Carolina Lowcountry, on the NC/SC border in the lower coastal plain, the farm is 30 miles NW of Myrtle Beach, SC, just outside a small rural town. I own 120+ acres of mixed pine/hardwood forest and fields, and a large 2-story 1880s farmhouse--the land has been in our family since 1827. Would like to get it back to the level of self-sufficiency of my great-grandparents' day. The property has a small pond, an extensive network of trails(several miles), fruit(plum, persimmon, nectarine, loquat, cherry, serviceberry, apple, peach, pomegranate, pear) and nut(pecan, chestnut, hazelnut)trees, grapevines, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, vegetable and flower gardens, a dog(Snoddy Dawg!), friendly barn cats, poultry(Chickens, geese, ducks, guineas, turkeys, bantams), lots of wildlife, as well as a zone 8 growing season(4 season garden). Current projects include organic raised bed & field mixed veg gardening, mixed flower and herb(edible & medicinal) gardens, high tunnel, straw bale & traditional cold frames, exotic plants-ethnobotany, permaculture, mycoculture, wildcrafting, hugelkultur, drainage projects/ditching, trail clearing and construction, pallet and bamboo construction, remodeling the 1880s farm house, pecan, blueberry, blackberry and grape harvesting, chickens, geese, guineas, landscaping, composting and a small nursery. Open to trying any new ideas, and always have something going on. Times when we really need volunteers(from 3-8 people) are during the spring & summer season when things are the busiest. I accept folks during the off-season, but in limited numbers(2-3). I have a library of 6k+ volumes, covering a myriad of topics, plus most friends refer to me as a walking encyclopedia. An old hippie (48yo) from the Rainbow Family, I moved back to the Carolinas to run the farm and help my mom who has Alzheimer's--she lives on her own still but I look out for her. Still in the beginning stages of reshaping the property to self-sufficiency after a couple of decades of neglect. The farm contains a quail habitat conservation area, as well as Prince Bay, one of the many Carolina Bays that dot the southern coastal plain, a truly unique ecosystem. -------------- >>>***Helpers must have a completed profile and a photo posted prior to contacting me. Please send links to your Facebook profiles for each person wishing to volunteer. If several people are wanting to help here together, do the same for each person. When writing as to availability of positions, include the dates you wish to help on the farm and your mode of transportation to get here. I prefer that folks arrive on a Saturday. Keep this in mind when you contact me for a position. A questionnaire will be sent to all prospective volunteers.***>Looking for helpers wanting to learn as well as helping out, 2 week minimum. If you contact me for a long-term stay, please follow through. Long-term stays are preferable only during the slow months. For long-term helpers, I will sit down with you after a week to discuss how things are working out.>***I am an omnivore, thus volunteers eat what I eat. Will accept folks with food allergies/special diets(veggie, vegan, lactose intolerant, paleo, all-organic/all-natural, etc) as long as you supply your own food. If someone with dietary restrictions wants to come here, that is fine with us but we will not alter our eating habits to suit someone else, nor buy special foods for you. Facilities will be provided for you to prepare your own food if you have a special diet. If you prefer all-natural foods, all-organic, etc, be sure to bring plenty with you. Btw, I buy my groceries at a normal supermarket, but all farm produce is organic. ***
