Area: CanterburyWe live at the bottom of the Canterbury foothills on a small farm with our three children, two girls (9 and 7 years) and a boy (4 years). We live in a fairly new house which we are still landscaping including a large vegetable garden. We also have a small farm with both sheep and cattle. So there are plenty of things going on around the place to keep us busy. We live about 60 kms from Christchurch near the main highway between Christchurch and the West Coast. We are only 30 minutes from the closest skifield and are surrounded by many lakes, rivers and walkways. Susan works fulltime in Christchurch so can provide a ride in on most days if required and I look after the farm and children. We all enjoy meeting new people and learning about other cultures and see this as a great opportunity to show our children that there are lots of people out there who live differently to us. Through this website we have met a lot of amazing people and made many friends and want to continue doing this for some time yet. Look forward to hearing from you soon! Rob and Susan
Area: Languedoc RoussillonI am an English artist who is lucky enough to be able to split my time between New York and a tiny village in the south west of France. I've been a fine art photographer for over 25 years and recently moved into making sculptural works. I'm a BBC radio 4 addict and listen to it constantly during work. My wife and I enjoy setting up the projector to end the day with a late night movie fest. We both entertain and cook a lot. I tend to cook more the traditional roasts as well as the paella on the terrace and the sushi. Nike cooks more of the Asian food as well as the desserts. Our house is often full of friends and guests. I'm usually working on a few projects at any one time from working on a new series of Photographs, to creating a piece of sculpture, to a new building/renovation idea for our place in France. I am fortunate that my work is also my great pleasure.
Area: OregonHello, Our home is located in the mountains on a river 4 miles from the largest lake in Oregon. Last summer we transformed our garage into an art/dance studio. This experience was wonderful working with the workaway program and the people who joined us. This April 2014 we are looking for carpenters, drywall and landscapers to help finish the art studio and build natural tent platforms using logs from the forest. Starting April through June we need help. We are located 2 hours from Portland Oregon and 1 hour from our state capital Salem. I do commute to Portland weekly so you can have transportation to and from the city to dine out or enjoy theater or a movie. I am asking for 20 hours of work a week in exchange for a room and board. We also could use help in creating some elevated garden beds, decks and paths to the river.
