Area: UlsterI need someone reliable to look after dogs and horses and my home Oct 10-17 while I go on holidays. You need to come a few days to a week beforehand to learn the routine. I am 2 miles from the nearest shop and pub/restaurant and will see you have provisions before I leave. I have TV but no internet in the house. My biggest passion in life is horses. I do massage and chiropractic on them, and occasionally need someone confident and knowledgeable with horses to hold them while I work on them. I have 3 dogs that live in the house so if you don't like dogs best to find another host. We go to the beach with the dogs most Saturdays you may join us. I offer vegetarian food only. Donegal is a beautiful county to explore, Glenveigh Castle and The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, and loads of beaches are within an hour bus ride from my home in Newtowncunningham. Derry is only a short drive and is a nice city to visit too. I like to show Donegal to visitors and will do all in my power to ensure you have a nice time. If you are a good horse person and can help me I can host you. I need general horse help, stable cleaning, painting, gardening, house cleaning, the usual stuff.
Area: VictoriaWe live in a small vibrant community of about 85 people in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains in East Gippsland, Victoria, 80 km from Lakes Entrance and 20 kms north of Buchan. The valley is the home of two ecovillages, one Tibetan Buddhist center, a number of different ecosensitive businesses and very creative & entreprenurial people. Ours is one of those ecovillages. Located in the Southern edge of the valley it was established in 1981. On that same year Bill Mollison―father of permaculture― stayed in our ecovillage designing a permaculture plan. Then he carried out his second Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) ever. The ecovillage is made of 5 houses and 50 hectares. The residents are one nurse (Beth), an employee at WWOOF Australia (Jack), a computer wizard (Jordi) and a writer and consultant in renewable energy (Marc). We need assistance with the veggie garden and the general maintenance of the place. We also need people with skills that can assist us in our entrepreneurial projects, such as graphic design, translation, web maintenance, etc. We offer comfortable accommodation and yummy vegetarian meals (vegan on demand) with a cooking style from all around the world (we are specially well-known for the delicious food). As a rural postcode, if you assist us with “general maintenance of crop work” we can sign your «1263 Working Holiday visa: Employment verification». For that we require you to stay at least one month.

Area: South West France, LotOpening for October 2014 and November 2014. Minimum stay 1 month. You are welcome to join our family for a minimum of 4 weeks with an option of staying longer if we both agree on it. Help and an extra pair of hands is needed in our big renovating job in the house and with our 2 story treehouse. In the mainhouse we're looking for somebody who would like to help us and give us a hand with plastering, woodwork, tiling, painting and other thinngs that might accur. In the garden we're going to work on out children treehouse, with doors, windows, and trying to add a little balcony with balustrade. Are you game?? Enjoy a stay in the South of France: We´re looking for a responsible person, who will show initiative and who would like to enjoy a stay in the french countryside. Living the french dream. A little information about us; we are a family of five, Marlies and Bart (the responsible ones) Mathis, a ten year old boy and our twins of 5 years old Josephine and Arthur, all 3 children are tri lingual. Both Bart and I have travelled extensively on Cruise liners as our professions and so we have (we are told) excellent English and an ability to communicate at all levels, with any nationality. The work will involve having fun, cooking together, enjoying the countryside village life, while renovating a house into a home with us. Because of the nature of our profession we have a tendency to be efficient and someone with excellent organisational skills would probably blend very well into the family. We like a clean and tidy environment and the twins certainly stretch our ability to maintain this, so patience is a virtue in this case. A grueat sense of fun would be an asset with the little and a sense of adventure for exploring the surrounding area and all it has to offer.
