Área: EnglandWe have four holiday lets in an acre of award winning gardens located above Pelistry Bay on St Marys, the largest of the Isles of Scilly. We pride ourselves on running an environmentally aware business and have a Gold award from the Green Tourist Business Scheme. (2007 and 2011) We could do with some more help around the place from people who share our vision of maintaining and developing a sustainable and sustaining business/way of living. Ideally, we are looking for a couple or friends who can commit for a month or longer throughout the year. I have lived abroad and travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and Africa and have several years experience as a family host for English language schools. I am committed to providing a positive experience for workawayers and can offer English lessons if required.

Área: New South WalesSituated just half an hour from the sparkling beaches of Port Macquarie rests our charming property set across 24 acres of lush valley lands. On its way to being self-contained with rainwater for all drinking, washing and gardening needs, composting toilet and solar water heating we need your help to further harmonise our home with the environment and create the ultimate haven away from the technocratic world. The house itself sits at the highest point of the property and views beautiful rolling green hills and stunning skies. When we purchased the property in 2004 it was obvious that it had originally been built to blend with its surrounds with its majority timber construction but it was also only partially completed. Since then we have been working to improve its structure, landscape areas around the house and imbue it with an inviting atmosphere for those who wish to visit. Currently we have growing a handful of fruiting trees such as mango, banana, avocado, macadamia and mulberry. We are often experimenting with growing seeds straight from the vegetables we eat and mostly with success. We would also like to set up organic fruit and vegetable patches. We dream of a day we never have to buy our fresh produce again. For an idea on what you might be working on with us: 1. Improving landscaping around the house with stone walls, bright and aromatic flora and inviting garden pathways 2. Planting little vegetable and fruit crops 3. Re-decking and extending balconies 4. Outdoor furniture construction with recycled timber 5. General house maintenance Each week we would appreciate 25 hours of work for 7 days of food and accommodation.

Área: Canary IslandsHello. I live alone with my little darling daughter Aziza who is 16 months. We live 5 minutes walk from the beach in the laid back surfer town of El Medano, Tenerife. Aziza and I came here from the UK one year ago, and have a wonderful community and a wonderful life here. However, I am by trade a yoga and pilates teacher and a massage therapist, and the fact is that as a single mum I just don't get more than the odd moment to do any exercise. While it could be said that motherhood itself is one big transcendence trip in a deeply yogic sense, I really would appreciate a bit of time on my actual yoga mat. Moreover I need some focussed time to gear up for a return to work by redoing my website etc. I feel a bit stuck and paralysed, and really need a few hours to myself to be able to move ahead with my projects.
