Region: Uecker-RandowHello there! We're Alex, Jan and Arthur Heuer. We are both mid 30s, and Arthur was born in 4/2013. We live on our farm in Kirchenfeld/ Penkun, eastern Germany. Alex comes from a little town near Stuttgart and I was raised near Hamburg. We met in Tromsø, Norway in 2006, where Alex studied biologie and I kind of studied philosophie. We were brought together by our love for heavy metal music and been together ever since. Alex went back to Tromsø twice to finish her diploma, the last time, I joined her and made our living by guiding tourists. Meanwhile I had grown tired of philosophie and cancelled my studies. After Alex got her degree, we moved (back) to Hamburg together. We soon grew tired of the hasty city-lifestyle and decided to move to the countryside. We found the place we are currently living in and fell in love with it at first sight. The house had not much, but potential and we started to make it a home right away. We basically emptied the house, did the waterinstallation and electricity and started to form everything to our liking. This year (2014) we finally got a new roof and the house plastered. In 2011 we got married, in 2013 we got Arthur, so now we are a propper family. We still try to attend to Wacken festival every year, though we had to pause, the year Arthur was born. Our goal is to become selfsufficient minifarmers, we keep chickens, ducks and pigs. We have also tried sheep and rabbits, but gave them away again. We also have Lara, our dog and our three cats, Cleopatra, Pippilotta and Odin. By now, we have got quite some gardenspace ready, to keep us occupied. We try to grow as much as possible ourselves, but we are far from selfsufficient. We take responsibility for the world around us, so whatever we buy, we try to go for organic and fair trade products. We try to avoid plastic as far as possible and stay away from flavour enhancers, preservatives and a lot of other additives from modern chemnistry. We don't have WiFi because we don't know what it does to us and Arthur. We got cables ready, though ;-) We like to eat meat, but it's not a problem if you are vegitarian/vegan. We respect your way of living and expect you to respect ours – that applies generally. Since we have a little baby, we are pretty occupied, so we won't be around most of the evenings, that means, you have to be ok with aloneness, in case there are no other volunteers around. We have three caravans and a roomy viking-style-tent and also a guestbathroom, so privacy is garanteed. If you want to help us, we expect you to be able to: - clean up after yourself - cook simple meals - hold a shovel and consider yourself a hard worker. What is probably important for you as well: as we live out in the sticks, there are no shops or pubs around. The next town with 2000 inhabitans is 4 km away, there`s a tiny grocery store, a pharmacy, a flower shop and a bakery. That`s all :-P Feel free to ask last minute- we need more help! >>update 12.7.: we need more help from the beginning of September!
Region: AndaluciaWe are an artist/musician couple with a 4 year old daughter. Carmen is Spanish from the coast of Granada and Tom is Scottish from Edinburgh. 10 years ago we bought a ruined village house with some land in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada in the province of Granada, Andalucia. We have worked hard restoring the house every winter, whilst travelling and working on our music and art in the summers.
Region: Scottish Highlands*** Sept 2014 - We are currently away and will be unable to respond to emails until the beginning of October. We are not looking for any more volunteers for 2014. However, we are still keen to talk to anyone, particularly couples, interested in a longer-term placement during 2015. *** Hi Workawayers, We live in a beautiful wooded glen (valley) just outside a village called Spinningdale about 50 miles (80km) north of the City of Inverness in the Northern Scottish Highlands. We are nearing completion of our "Natural Build" family home on a six acre former croft surrounded by 1700 acres of stunning natural woodland belonging to a conservation body called The Woodland Trust. We are looking for volunteers with an interest in natural building to come and help us finish our house. We have a stairs to build, doors to make, a timber frame extension to construct and, of course, lots of routine work like gardening, grass-cutting, firewood chopping, cooking and helping around the house. We would particularly like to talk to a volunteer (or even better, a couple) who might be interested in a long-term placement (6 to 12 months) with the opportunity to learn about natural building and permaculture.
Region: Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur!!! Read until the end, because we don't answer if your profile doesn't match (age, nationality...) !!! We are 2 French navy officers. My husband (40) is a mine clearance diver; I (32) teach operational English. Our little Alessandro is 6. As you can see on the pictures, we take care of our accomodation, and like it to be rather clean (but if you take off your shoes, you can put your feet on the sofa, ahah). We like going out at week-ends, and have quite a rich social life. We'd be happy to welcome you, for 2 reasons: 1. We want our child to hear and practise his English (so you do have to be a native speaker, I insist, no other option) 2. It's cool to meet new people and welcome them!
Region: BrittanyI am a mother with unpredictable working hours, i work 25mins away by car, from home to Brest. And i would like some help from any female caring volunteer for the well being of my little darlings. We live in Brittany in a house nearby the sea, in a little council called Locmaria-plouzané which is 25mins away from Brest the main city. If you like nature, you'll have many areas to visit.
