Area: Cuzco, Sacred ValleyAntes de todo quiero decirle que vamos de viaje a Europa y regresamos en Peru en nuestro hogar solo en Septiembre 2014. Somos una familia multicultural, yo soy Italiana, mi esposo es de Lettonia, mi hija mayor (3 años) es italiana y mi hija menor ha nacido en Peru donde estamos ahora viviendo. Nos encanta el Valle sagrado y sus montañas, un lugar ideal para conectarte con la Naturaleza y con tu parte mas profunda. Aqui trabajamos con las plantas sagradas, organizando seminarios en el Valle y en la Selva. Nos gusta cantar y tocar, cocinar saludable y vegetariano, compartir con amigos, viajar y tener una vida simple en nuestro hogar. Intentamos vivir en llena presencia practicando la comunicacion directa y no violenta. Por supuesto nos gusta recibir invitados y compartir con ellos! Los voluntarios seran parte de la familia, de nuestros amigos y de nuestras actividades.
Area: MunsterNon-smoking family of 4, plus 1 who is married so longer lives at home!! We have house pets and a large garden. We live in a rural part of Co Cork and lead a very simple life. We are trying to develop a veg and fruit garden to be self-sufficient. We happy to take you to and from the bus route. We will take you to visit some local places if we have time. I am a qualified teacher and we are happy to help you with learning the English language, don't worry if you are very rusty we don't mind!! As the work is physical and outside you need to be comfortable bending, using simple garden tools, rake, spade, fork etc. We are happy to teach you but please this is not the place for you if physical outdoor work does not appeal to you. You WILL get dirty :) We share the living day to day tasks like preparing meals, washing up after dinner and light housework this is not a hotel!!!!
Area:We live on a small piece of land beautifully located in the hilly area of Pogórze Izerskie. We have 3-years-old son and expecting a new baby soon. I’m ethnologist by education. I’ve travelled a bit and my interests are world cultures, languages and of course natural gardening. My partner is a carpenter and recently launching his project which encompasses straw bales building, clay plastering, traditional building techniques from the area. Not only do we live in wonderland of true nature but also we are lucky to be surrounded by other people who’d decided for countryside instead of staying in huge cities. We’re friends and acquaintances with local artists, craftspeople and ecological farmers. We frequent some of the events that take place at “Stacja Wolimierz” (unused railway station with artistic background) and try to stay socially active in various social initiatives (like local ngo – “Unia Izerska”) On the plot, along with the small vegetable garden and old fruit orchard comes the traditional brick and stone house, which we patiently and gradually convert into an eco-friendly guest house with rainwater showers, compost toilets and solar energy. The garden and the orchard we wish to expand with the aim of being able to provide our future quests with the food grown exclusively by us. There are two dogs and a cat together with us.
