Area: British ColumbiaWe have a lovely family of 22 happy huskies, 3 fainting goats:), a llama, and a sheep. I workfull time as a nurse and Joe works fulltime as a machinist in addition to caring for the animals. We consider the dogs as part of our family, and want the very best for them. The more attention the dogs receive the more they thrive. Hense having volunteers on a regular basis helps out tremendously, and keeps them happy and healthy. Volunteers are welcome all year round and are greatly appreciated. We need help with the dog and animal chores and care ( feeding, brushing, scooping poop, watering, cuddles, cleaning pens etc) as well as house chores, painting, gardening, cutting trails, firewood, building, fencing, and a variety of other projects. We love meeting people and am always excited to share my love for animals. Non smokers please :)
Area: CataloniaHi, We are a married couple with three children, originally from Wales and we are living in the province of Tarragona, in a Village about an hours drive from the Tarragona coastline. We have a small 5 hectre farm planted with olives, almonds, cherries and vines. Our farm is close to our local village and the area has lots to offer for people who enjoy the great outdoors. Last year, we built our own pool which is great for the summer months or it is only a five minute drive to the local village pool, which opens late June until September. Each year we are looking to improve the land and increase our number of trees. We have invested in buying an olive press which we hope to use this year to make our own olive oil. Also, we are hoping for a good crop of red and white grapes which we aim to make our own wine with. With help, we hope to start a new project this year. We want to construct a stone building to house the olive press. We are always open to ideas from people on landscaping, different methods of farming and new knowledge etc. We have been living in Spain for ten years and would love to share our way of living off the grid whilst meeting and making new friends. Also, we are very keen to improve our Spanish and would enjoy spending workaway experiences practising this language.

Area: FloridaArrghably the best deal in town, we started out as the Youth Hostel, but have since transitioned into a budget B and B, though we still have a dorm room for independent travelers. The hostel has been here since 1989, but I have only owned it since 2003. Currently we have a new manager Corey, who is very outgoing. We are right in the middle of a small town with lots of bars and restaurants and a very vibrant music scene.
