Area: Lower SaxonyWe couple, son 10 and dog like to have help on our farm. The region where we live is called "Wendland" it is a part of northeast lower saxony. Hamburg and Berlin are 2 to 3 driving- hours away the next railway station is in Salzwedel. We are nurse and male nurse part- time working. Our farm is organic and mostly for self- sufficiency, we have goats, pigs, rabbits, chicken, and we are breeders of the "Bentheimer Landschaf" an old north german sheep race. We make cheese from the goats milk, baking bread. In our gardens we produce veggies for ourselves. The farmhouse was built in 1890. During the whole year we need help on our farm. We are interested to share our knowledge and to learn new things from you.
Area: Baltimore County, MarylandIt's hard to describe my husband and me as "empty-nesters", because our home is hardly empty, but we are the only two-legged residents here, since our daughters are grown and "launched". We share our home and our lives with a rather large menagerie of rescued animals: 4 small dogs; 3 cats; and 7 house rabbits. Obviously, we are animal lovers, and I am vegan, and my husband maintains a mostly vegan diet at home. Before we adopted our daughters from Russia, I was an architectural and aviation photographer, and my husband is a commercial real estate developer in Baltimore, MD. I am in the process of starting a new business venture -- a vegan travel service specializing in Paris and St. Petersburg, Russia. We also devote some of our time and energy to a local animal rescue.
Area: Champagne ArdenneHello! We are a french family linving in the Ardennes, near Belgium. We have 3 kids, Louis 21, who just left home to start a job, Julia 19, finishing school this year and the little one Edouard, 10. Four years ago we bought a very old farm, 7 km away from our house, in a small (very small!) village. It has several buildings and a piece of land and a little vegetable garden. We started to rebuild one of the houses and we opened a gîte. We still have a lot to do, so we would be very pleased to welcome somebody who can help in building, specialy cutting stones, carpentry, making concrete and electricity etc... You can also help with the gardening, cleaning the gîte to welcome tourists, playing with our son Edouard etc... We live in an old house in a village, both working, we are looking for someone to share our family life and to give a hand at home for everydy work. We also have a big garden where there is always a lot to do! We offer a nice bedroom in our family house, with a big bed and private bathroom. We enjoy evening talking with a glass of wine and we will be very happy to make you visit our beautifull Ardennes! But you must know that we are in a small village, with no bus to go to town... (but we can drive you sometimes!) If you like countryside, you should be verry happy with us!
Area: Bahia, BrasilWe are building a village and a community deep in the Rain Forest of Bahia (but still not far from the beach!) The land is an amazing area of Atlantic rain forest with a huge river to swim in, waterfalls, thousands of fruit trees, many of them wild. We also have a cacao farm and produce organic chocolate! We have a communal dining hall, as well as individual houses, and the place is filled with visitors, friends, and volunteers who stay here and exchange helping with various projects (gardening, building, etc.) for living here for a while... We are near the vibrant and fun surf town of Itacare. Access to our land and community is either by boat or 4x4, so we will arrange to pick you up in Itacare when you arrive. We are trying to fill our lives with more music, so if you play music, sing, or dance do so here! Liz e eu, Sam, estamos vivendo no Brasil. Nós compramos 78 acres aqui, com três outras famílias, e começamos uma comunidade na floresta tropical. A terra é uma área incrível de Mata Atlântica, com um enorme rio para nadar, cachoeiras, milhares de árvores frutíferas, muitas delas selvagens. Temos uma sala de jantar comum, bem como casas individuais. O local está sempre cheio de visitantes, amigos e voluntários que vem para trocar experiências e ajudar com vários projetos (jardinagem, construção, etc) durante o tempo que ficam conosco. Estamos perto da vibrante e divertida de cidade do surf, Itacaré. O acesso à nossa comunidade ocorre de barco ou veículo 4x4, e por isso vamos nos organizar para buscá-lo na cidade quando chegar. Estamos tentando preencher nossas vidas com mais música e dança. Por isso, se você gosta de ouvir ou fazer música, cantar ou dançar, venha faze-lo aqui! Nossas viagens nos levaram da América Central à América do Norte, para a Ásia e para a África. Nós estamos de mente aberta e gostamos de conhecer novas pessoas. Sam nasceu e viveu no Líbano até a adolescência, depois viveu com sua família no Canadá durante 6 anos antes de viajar. Liz (34), esposa de Sam, é de Utah. Nós somos pessoas amáveis que sempre procuram ligações mais profundas, com as pessoas e com a terra.
