Area: ScotlandThis is the only house by the side of a beautiful and remote loch on Scotland's west coast. We are 2 hours walk from the nearest neighbour, public road, grid connection or mobile phone signal. We generate our own (erratic) electricity. I am an architect working in Glasgow but I spend half my time at the cottage. My father spends most of the summer at the cottage. He is an eccentric 79yr old inventor who is getting a bit forgetful and unsteady on his feet. We have 4 acres beside our cottage which includes a garden that supplies most of our food in the summer. This is a fabulous location for nature-watching (eagles, otters, seals and dolphins) with some lovely walks around the loch and there's a bicycle if you want to go further afield. We have separate accommodation with its own kitchen and bathroom for volunteers. We've enjoyed meeting some great workaway volunteers for the past couple of years and we're looking forward to meeting more next summer.

Area: BavariaWe: Bruni, Andy, Thilo (Deutsch) and Martin (English (ex workawayer)) live together in a big old shared farmhouse in Sankt Wolfgang, Bavaria. From here we work and are creative. In addition, we live with a few geese, ducks, chickens and cats. Since we have not lived here too long there is still a lot to do. Therefore we are looking for a nice person to help us with our projects. Because we want to make our farm a place for art, culture, games and meetings of all kinds, technical skills and a good dose of creativity are in demand. We have a large garden with many fruit trees and its own vegetables. Our house is standing alone on a large hill with a beautiful view, therefore, a driver's license would be an advantage, or if you like you can go walking or cycling:-). ================================================================= Wir, Bruni, Andi, Thilo (deutsch) und Martin ( Engländer ) wohnen zusammen als WG auf einem alten Bauernhaus in Sankt Wolfgang, Bayern. Von hier aus arbeiten wir und sind kreativ tätig. Ausserdem leben mit uns ein paar Gänse, Enten, Hühner und Katzen. Da wir noch nicht so lange hier wohnen gibt es noch eine Menge zu tun. Daher suchen wir einen netten Menschen der uns bei unseren Projekten hilft. Da wir aus unserem Hof einen Ort für Kunst, Kultur, Spiel und Treffen aller Art machen möchten sind handwerkliches Geschick und eine gute Portion Kreativität gefragt. Wir haben einen großen Garten mit viele Obstbäumen und eigenem Gemüse. Unser Haus liegt alleinstehend auf einem Berg mit wunderschöner Aussicht daher wäre ein Führerschein von Vorteil oder du gehst gerne zu Fuß oder fährst gerne Fahrrad :-) .
Area: New South WalesWe are a young couple building our dream in a rural area on a 30 acre farm two hours North West of Sydney. We are in the beautiful Lower Hunter Valley just one hour from the coast. We ask that everyone who wants to visit to be able to stay for at least 7days to get more out of your stay with us, and if we are both happy longer stays are possible. Most of our farm is un-touched bushland with lots to be explored and do. Wollombi is the closest town just 7km down the road, it is a small village but busy on the weekends. It is a good day trip or weekend away destination for most Sydneysiders. The Hunter Valley is known as a wine region so if you’re into wine there is a lot to check out... but we don’t drink any alcohol and want to keep our farm a smoke, drug and alcohol free zone. On the farm we have 17 chickens, 2 roosters, 2 small ponies, 1 old baby goat, 1 old baby sheep, 1 dog and 1 cat called Kitten, we also have a happening veg garden and a young Food Forest. We are getting ready to build our home out of recycled materials; everything on our farm has its place and use. We believe water is life, without water all life will cease so please be mindful with our water use. Our aim is to run weekend and day classes and workshops teaching what we know and how we live our life. We practice permaculture, nature awareness, small scale farming, living sustainably, spiritual healing, healing through food, as well as hosting vegetarian and vegan cooking classes and retreats. Kylie has a small boutique tea company, of wild herbs that grown around the local area, we make teas for medicinal purposes. She writes a cooking and farm blog page. Kylie has been a full time volunteer for 2 years travelling around the world, so we know how to make a good fun day on the farm, and you will never be hungry - we know food is payment and we are just so grateful for the help. Aarons is a very busy Landscape Designer, Horticulturalist and Structural Contractor who often needs help on the job; so the possibility of payed work is there for the right persons. Aaron uses this knowledge on the farm especially when it come to building and plants, and is very happy to share knowledge and skills with those that are interested. We have a large range of work for people with various skills and abilities ranging from work on the land to work around the home. Please advise us of your interests, abilities and/or skills if any.
