Area: Algarve (Monchique)Our property/house is in the Algarve, in the mountains ,the Serra de Monchique, not near the coast. We are a german couple, I am a veterinarian and animal protector, my husband is an artist, electrician, porcelane painter. We are living in a house in the mountains,we make oecological gardening and composting and we are building a house from clay. Our place is in the middle of the nature, a very quiet place, with wild animals as frogs, birds, foxes and wild pigs around. We live in an oecological way, using only natural products and no chemical stuff. We are living here with 4 dogs, 3 cats, a Kakadoo and 2 chicken. The ocean is not so far away and we can offer a car to go there for relaxing on the beach or to go for activities like surfing. We sometimes go there for fishing. The mountains are good for walking in the middle of nowhere. We have a small and a bigger village about 5-10 km away from our house and some bigger cities around 30 km away. We like to have here people living close together with us as members of the family, as friends. Hakuna Matata
Area: GrendiWe do not need volunteers at the moment. If we need volunteers again, I will delete this headline! Thank you :) Hello Volunteer! :) This is a project of travel for peace. We want to finish a huge peace center that many people can enjoy this place for different events. We are a peace organization which so far arranges peace travels for Norwegian pupils, grown ups, has a well-fare project in Africa and wants to extend it's offer. Therefore we need our peace center. Our vision for the peace center is to be a collecting point for future work on peace and human rights. The old building (built 1911 - 1917) was a lung-hospice before. We are about to renovate it. Some rooms are already completed. In a few rooms there are only some details missing and others have to be renovated entirely. We have one skilled person but he can't of course do the work only by himself. Therefore we need you. We want to finish some parts until August (and some parts later on), so the building and the surroundings can be used for grill-parties, as a hosting place for travelers, the rooms inside for exhibitions and so on. We really need people that want to work and do identify with our vision. We had some people before which didn't really came for work and that is why the peace center still is not completed. So please do not contact us if you are afraid of getting your hands dirty. We started the project in July 2012 and it works great so far, therefore I am looking for more fun people that can help us to work on the peace center! Furthermore we bought a hotel 5 km away from the peace center to have enough space to host visitors of the peace center. So this is a new project we are working on. Sometimes we need help of volunteers for outdoor work and serving etc. Skills in hospitality would therefore be a benefit. The nature around the peace center is just fascinating. It is close to the water with a small sandy beach. We have bicycles here which you can borrow as well as fishing rodes and tents. You can go hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, rafting and so on. We also have two guitars here, some drums and a piano. Check out the pictures to get a better impression of the place where we are. We can arrange to pick you up in Kristiansand. Important: we need you to have a travel insurance, that covers volunteer work. Otherwise we can't allow you to volunteer for us. I am happy to see you here!
Area: BulgariaHi..Thanks for visiting our profile. We are an Eco Hostel and information point positioned at the end of a valley 900kms above sea level accessible only by foot or 4x4 vehicles. Water as usual is a constant problem in the summer as our spring can dry up! This means no running water, but we always have water collected from a local source in bottles and drinking water available. We are new to this lifestyle and constantly trying to find solutions to the problems of living of grid...We do have electricity but no internet or TV. Mobile reception we do have, and of course mountains! We also have a lot of volunteers and fun at the Yetts this year’s projects are building outdoor showers, composting toilets, and regenerating our small orchard... What could be better than lathering up whilst taking in the view in the bush shower, swinging in a hammock after a hot day, plunging in our small but perfectly formed waterfall pool and cooking outdoors? We are also continuing our workshops in conjunction with the Bulgarka Natural Park workshops include Yoga, Recycled Art, Nature trail and the beginning of an Ecological and sustainable green school for local children from the age of 5 to 18 years. If you feel you could contribute to our project then send us your profile and available dates and we promise to get back to you as soon as we are in town!
