Area: New South Wales, Forster/Tuncurry HinterlandHi Workawayer's, I'm Karen, Good English please because I like to have fun interacting with you. I prefer people with some life and work experience 25yrs+ Always plenty of work pulling out Lantana ( a plant). Boring house work is kept for rainy days. I live on 12 Acres of real (native) Australian Bush with winding tracks and Rainforest at the creek. It contains a few rare native plants and there lots of different ferns, palms, rainforest plants, vines and very tall gum trees. The creek has natural beauty even when it is dry. I'm a registered wildlife carer and conservationist and my property is classed as "land for wildlife" Sometimes I don't have any animals in care, because once they are raised they are released. One of my French backpackers has come back 3 times because she says my place is the best experience in all of Australia. I'm proud of that. Only one in New Zealand better. The wildlife is abundent because I know how to keep it how they like it. I have a certificate 3 in Conservation and land management, also cert2 in Horticulture. I have 1 hand raised Wallaby and 1 Kangaroo that are released but still live nearby in the bush. Sometimes they come home for a visit. Every morning and afternoon the wild Wallabies and Paddymellons feed on the grass and the birds and frogs are defending. In the hot weather the Eastern Water Dragons and Land Mullets lay about on logs soaking up the sun. They have great characters and sometimes I feed them to keep them friendly. Every night Paralka the possum turns up for a feed. I renovated a site office and turned it into a home to live in. A shipping container provides work shop and storage. And a second container has been turned into clean, comfortable guest accomidation but there is no heating or cooling, so you have be tough and live within the elements. My backpackers are allowed one square foot of wall space to leave there international mark. This property is totally self sufficient which means there are no phone cables, no power lines and no water pipes........a "stand alone" solar system provides electricity, water from tanks and mobile phone and wireless Internet have great reception. BRILLIANT! Experience with manual labor is preferred. The work is hard but rewarding. The animals you might find here are: Kangaroos Wallabies Paddymelons Koalas Water Dragons Land Mullets Goannas Bandicoots Snakes Ticks Leaches and heaps more. PLEASE DON'T APLY IF YOUR NOT INTO HARD WORK OR CREEPY CRAWLIES!! I only take people for short stays 7-10 days. I can pick you up from Taree train station, or the state to state Bus/Coaches stop at Nabiac. If you have your own car it's only 20 minuets to the beautiful beaches of Forster, or you can come with me into town on a day off. PLEASE NOTE: I only provide 3 meals a day, so if you want anything to snack on between meals or alcohol they are at your own expense. On Days off we usually go into town and do shopping and sight seeing but you feed yourselves. Contact me for any questions, And please include your private email address. Cheers, Karen.
Area:Organic Bed and Breakfast at the lovely island Alsen. The living house is from 1785 with a lot of charm from the "good old days" and work has do be done is in the garden and at the house. In 2008 I fall in love with an very old house on the iland Alsen in the south of Denmark. Now it is our home for me Maren (53) and my youngest datter Lisa (17).Hannah(24) and Duncan(21) are not living at home anymore. I have two educations, ceramist and masseur and have workexperience from several working places . Now I am working at a little privat school as a social educator and taking an education as a yogateacher. After one year of restoring some parts of the house I started my ecological B&B in may 2010 . The dream is to restore the 1. floor for B&B. I have a part time job so you have to be capable of working on your own .Beside work there will be plenty of time to explore the island by bicycle or hiking, good bus transfer to Sonderborg.
Area: BurgundyHello! I am a French artist living in a huge old farmhouse in the Bourgogne countryside with lots of animals (not far from the city). The house is of course very arty filled with lots of interesting pieces and artifacts, and is set in a beautiful green area with rolling hills, with famous vineyards such as Chablis nearby. The are is also great for outdoor activities such as: kayaking, biking, rock climbing hiking, fishing etc. I take care of the garden, the animals and the general maintenance but, now my husband is ill, I would like someone to provide an extra pair of hands, and help me across a range of garden activities such as clearing garden, weeding, cutting trees, and ongoing renovation work on the farmhouse itself. Ideally I am looking for someone fit and enthusiastic, with a positive attitude who is able to work independently as well as with me. A handyman or handywoman with some experience in gardening / masonry/ or carpentry would be great but is not essential as I can direct you and find tasks that you are comfortable with. It is essential, however, that you love animals as there are plenty here: 4 cats, a dog, a sheep and lots of chickens and geese! There is even currently a stray duckling at the moment-always something new to see! This has been the first year that I have participated in the workaway scheme and the experience has been so positive that I would like to continue meeting people from different cultures from all over the world, and sharing a valuable and happy exchange. In return for your help, I can gladly offer you: Alternative slice of life in the French countryside Hearty wholesome food Artistic and happy environment Opportunity to meet and socialise with my friends who live nearby and are always interested in meeting people from various places Help with your French-if you would like! I am happy to collect you from the local train station if you are travelling by train Looking forward to hearing from you :)

Nous avons 3 enfants. Félix, l'aîné a 7 ans, Camille,le second a 2 ans et demi, et le petit dernier, Zacharie a 9 mois. Tous les 3 s'entendent bien et ne manquent pas de bonne humeur.

Zacharie est un peu petit pour les activités sportives mais il aime déjà beaucoup rire avec toute la famille. Pierre, mon mari, travaille une partie de la semaine à Nantes, sur le continent et l'autre partie de la semaine à la ferme. Il est passionné d'apiculture.
