My husband & I have a small farm which runs beef cattle with our dog Mae -My husband runs an earthmoving business and we also have 4 horses- 3 of which are kaimanawa's (wild horses of NZ) and 1 South island bred mare...I am an Eponaquest Instructor and run an Equine therapy business. I am looking for Workaway Volunteers with Horse riding experience. Farming and maintenance, cattle and horse welfare are a priority and we would appreciate help in maintaining and rejuvenating bush tracks, gardens and the stream.
My husband and I run a pet care facility for dogs and cats. We are in our 50's. We take the dogs out for trail walks on our 4 acres, provide daily care, cleaning up after the pets, and bathing/grooming. They say if you love what you do that you never have to work a day in your life....so we are very happy. While our beautiful spot in the hills is wooded and feels like the country, we are within two miles of major shopping areas.
One of the largest parks in the Eastern U.S. with hiking and canoeing begins less than a mile away. Also at the park is a vintage train-if you pay two dollars, you can ride with your bike and then bike back (or ride both ways!)
If you like the arts, we have many museums and two famous symphonies within a one hour drive. We are in Akron, 45 minutes drive from Cleveland and Lake Erie and the islands. We have a nice mountain bike to lend and can provide some transportation depending on the business hours too.
If you are improving your English speaking, I have a Masters from the Dept. of English from Bowling Green State University in 2001 and as a graduate student have taught Freshman Composition with many students in the ESL program (English as a Second Language). So I won't teach you bad English!
Please note we only offer 2 weeks, possibly 3 if it works out.

We live in the wonderful, vibrant, Cote D'Azur near Cannes and are a British couple, Tony (from London) & Valerie (from Liverpool). We manage a beautiful self- catering holiday complex in the Alpes Maritimes, our nearest town being the Capital of Perfume Grasse. We are easily accessible to Cannes, Antibes and Nice .
The holiday complex has a pool, tennis court, and table tennis and is set in 3.5 acres of grounds. The views are amazing to coast of Cannes and down into the hills. There is wonderful walking and cycling here.
We are looking for some gardening/general maintenance/painting help during the Autumn/Winter/Spring season as the hotel is closed. This is when we have to catch up on necessary things for the next season.
I am an easy going, happy, busy, active woman living on the beach in Penticton. I love sports & art in pretty much all forms, but especially - painting & pottery. I have a few chickens so we have fresh eggs to enjoy most days. Our lake is warm and clean. Each day is started with a swim and coffee on the beach right outside the house. HIking is fantastic in this area and if time allows it would be fun to show you some of my favourite places:)
I like to entertain when time permits and catering is one of my businesses so cooking is one of my passions.
My grown children live in town and we often get together for breakfast/coffee on the beach, dinners and visiting. I love to travel and look forward to hosting people that I can show around and share our different cultures.
There is no smoking in the home so Id prefer a non smoking person ideally, but otherwise a very considerate smoker will be welcome:)
