Area:This is a wildlife rehabilitation centre, specializing in non-human primates indigenous to South Africa. We receive animals from other organizations, the public and government, usually orphaned babies and/or injured, misplaced, traumatized individuals. Through our rehabilitation program all animals are formed into cohesive troops and released back to nature to live a natural wild life. Since 2002 we've had volunteers from all over the world to assist with all daily chores and of course looking after the babies and all animals. Although we specialize in primates we have birds and/or other animals as well from time to time.

Area: KärntenHello, my name is Andrea. We are a family living and working in Graz but in summer and other holidays and weekends we stay with my older mother in a big house in Carinthia. During the rest of the year she is alone with her cat and dog in the house. The house was a former guesthouse with many rooms, now we only rent one appartment in summer. We have a nice garden with a small vegetable garden and a ten year old tortoise running around. I am a teacher in a fashion school in Graz. I like hiking, doing Yoga, swimming, reading, and I like meeting young people and learning about their view of life. Our children, 20 and 25, will not be around all the time, because they are travelling in summer. Our daughter was a workawayer last year and she loved it that is why we want to give the opportunity to others to get to know our country and language. We are located close to the lake "Wörthersee", only 3 minutes foot walk to the beach. The border to Italy and Slovenia is also very close. It is a great area for nature lovers, outdoor hikers, bikers and swimmers.
Area: Auvergne****UPDATE WE ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2013 SEASON. WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO COME AND HELP WITH OUR PROJECT FOR THE SPRING AND SUMMER 2014 PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU WANT TO HELP***** We have had a great year hosting many diverse workawayers with lots of happy memories, and look forward to a great 2014! We have been living and working here for the last 18 years. The property is set in 23 acres (9.25 hectares) and is made up of a hunting lodge, farmhouse and a rundown Porcherie. Jennifer is a catering manager in hospitality for a motor sport team, Malcolm is a working musician. Malcolm also works as a professional antique stove restorer, so there are always interesting architectural antiques about the place. We are both in our 50’s. Jennie has a wide repertoire in the kitchen and is quite happy to teach those that are willing. She can teach the following cuisines: Indian; French; Cordon Bleu and good old fashioned English country cooking. Jennie is also an excellent vegetarian cook. We have three adorable donkeys, three miniature black sheep, a flock of interesting breed chickens, a pond full of Indian runner ducks. We also have five cats. We have a productive veggie plot which helps to feed us throughout the year. We look upon our five acre landscaping project as a working canvas, so anyone interested in bringing fresh ideas would be most welcome. There are always ongoing projects that we need help with. Duties will include: gardening on the veggie plot; general gardening; hedging; wood chopping. Looking after the various animals, building work under supervision. We have a tractor, commercial mower, a digger and a dumper all of which get constant use throughout the summer months! The property is in a rural location, 15 minutes from the nearest town. Situated on a quiet lane the house is within easy reach of Paray Le Monial, Marcigny and Roanne. Situated near two villages, both with thriving bar/restaurants offering local fare, the area is very peaceful. And the locals are very friendly! We have mountain bikes that you can use whilst you are here. If you like fishing, the Loire River is 5 minutes away by bike. We travel quite often looking for stoves, you would be welcome to come with us and see some of France. We are working hard to finish the accommodation for April which will consist of 1 bedrooms and a shared bathroom, or the choice of a caravan, if you want your own space. We’re hoping for a maximum of four people at the peak period in the summer Malcolm is professional rock/blues musicians, so musicians, bring your instruments you are welcome to come and jam! After our last experience with a long term winter workawayer, and after careful consideration, we have decided to close our doors from September through to spring 2014. Long term winter stays here are not for the faint hearted without some degree of fiscal independence and a vehicle.
