Area: SaxonyWe are a family of 4, kids 6 and 8, who live near Dresden in a farm house. We have travelled and worked abroad a lot and are now settling down a little bit living in an old farm house. You are welcome to live with us in the house in your own room, so couples too are welcome. Our place is great for people who like the calm and nature, you can go hiking, biking, swimming (in summer) in your free time. We can also show you around if our time permits. We would need help constructing, painting (also creative painting), making fire wood, helping with the kids and garden depending on your abilities. So someone with building knowledge is more then welcome as we are no experts in it and just start to learn.. We eat mostly vegetarian and organic food and try to grow our own vegies during summer. We have a cat who also lives inside so you should not be allergic to cats.
Area: HagelandFor the moment we are looking for help after 9 june. Hello, We have a house in the countryside - an old farm with a garden of 3000m² with organic fruit trees (trying to follow the permaculture principles). We are located 10 km from Tienen, a small city with a good train connection to Brussels (40 minutes) and 20 km from Leuven (a university city with a nice old centre). We have 3 cats, chickens and 2 pet pigs. We are in our mid thirties, down to earth people. Non smokers (smoking is possible outside, off course) and non vegetarians but we can provide vegetarian food if wished. Broad intrest going from geek tech stuff over finance to permaculture and transition network.
Area: Dalvík, north Iceland coast in Eyjafjörður, close to Akureyri (45 km)To begin with - an important notice: For the moment we don´t need any workers for the coming months but feel free to write if you want...who knows if things change and we need additional helpers. So....we are.... a family of five, Bjarni, Heiða and three daughters...Anna Margrét (22), María (20) and Bríet Brá (13). We are running a small family firm, which includes a seven bedroom hostel for about 20 people, three cottages and an 99 years old cottage, a very romantic one! We also provide accommodation in the local ski hut, during summer. Heiða is also working on setting up a small exibition attached to the cafe...with folk tales of three strange guys from the valley. Bjarni also works as a fisherman from time to time.
Area: LazioI live on the top of a hill overlooking the medieval village of Torri in Sabina in Lazio one hour from Rome. This land has belonged to my family for generations, and my father was a producer of olive oil, as was his father. I continue this tradition with my husband, except that we no longer crush the olives ourselves, but take them to a local mill to produce the oil, which we in turn sell. My husband and I have 4 children, but only one now lives at home. The others are away at university. I am a teacher of mathematics at the local high school, and also teach ceramics in my studio in the evenings. My husband is an agronomist who, apart from his Monday to Friday job, manages to maintain 20 hectares of land and olive groves. My main interest is ceramics, and it is my dream to be able to teach in England or another English-speaking country, and to do this, I need to improve my English conversation. For this reason I would like someone to work with us who has English as their mother tongue.
