Area: CataloniaWe are an English couple who live permanently in an old farmhouse in a beautiful part of Catalonia, Spain. We would like help with developing our eco house and garden, particularly demonstration plots and veggie growing as we frequently have guests and like to spread the word of organic gardening and sustainable life styles. David works full time in international organic accreditation and Karen runs the farmhouse as a Bed and Breakfast in the Summer months. We offer practical experience in sustainable living. Currently looking for volunteers from February 2014. Sorry, no volunteers July and August.
Area: BrittanyWe have a farm with 20 horses, ponies and a herd of sheep in the middle of Brittany, north west France. We also have a two year old son, a dog, Bailey and a cat, Jazzy. I run the farm and train the horses and ponies using natural horsemanship techniques, and would love some help with the farm, the horses and maybe our son. In return for your help, we offer your own room, wifi internet access, food and the chance improve and practise Natural Horsemanship skills. I would prefer helpers who love horses and want to spend lots of time with them because we really are in the countryside and there are no big cities around. We have room for one or two helpers at a time. We are currently looking for one or two helpers in May and June. We prefer helpers who can preferably stay for a month or more this summer. At the moment we have some great work(!?) to do, like getting this year's foals used to being handled and getting our young horses used to being ridden and jumping. So we are looking for keen experienced riders who would be willing to adjust their present riding skills to Natural Horsemanship techniques. Because most of our horses are less than 14.2hh, we are looking for lightweight riders.
Area: NevadaThe following is in Spanish only, if you are not a native Spanish speaker please do not apply. Quiera aprender y practicar mi Español con alguien que no hable inglés o muy poco. Trabajo desde casa casi todo el tiempo, muy pocas veces tengo que trabajar afuera.
Area: Valencian CommunityI am a Cuban/American married to a Spaniard. Have lived in Spain for 35 years where I have raised my family. We have a holiday home on the beach that we rent out to tourist as well as part of our home which is in a residential area near (Ribarroja del Turia ) and 20 km from Valencia City and would love to have someone that speaks english sharing time with us and helping us with our holiday home. We are connected to the beach and Valencia Center by tram so there is no transportation problem. Alex, my husband, is Spanish but has lived in Italy during his high school years so he speaks Italian. It is important to note that we are not vegetarian but we do not include red meat or pork in our diet. I was born in Cuba, but raised in Miami. We both have travelled a lot and lived in different countries like Cuba, Venezuela, Mexico, Italy, and in Spain in Madrid, Barcelona and finally in Valencia which we love. At home we have a piano for those that love to play. My husband and I both really enjoy listening to the piano at home and we have mountain bikes so you can enjoy the area. We are nonsmokers so we do not accept smoking in the house.
Area: MassachusettsMy husband, Scott, and I (Kristy) have 3 kids, Logan who just turned 3, Connor who is going to be 2 and Dylan who is 4 months old. The boys are so much fun, have lots of energy and bring much joy to our home. We are an active family, always wanting to learn more about other cultures. We have visited Europe several times and have many au pairs for the boys. We want our boys to learn other languages, and to learn about other cultures. Through the years, we have made many life-long friends overseas who we have stayed in contact with and we want to extend that opportunity to others. My husband and I work full time, and he travels a few times per month but when we are not working we spend all of our time with our kids and working on our home or spending time with friends and family. We like to have fun, cook, and learn new things.
