Area: VictoriaMy name is Marc Torra. I'm a writer and publisher living in an eco-village South of the Snowy Mountains. The community consists of 5 houses built around a veggie garden and an orchard, surrounded by the Australian bush with little pockets of Gondwana rainforest. This is a very old land where wildlife lives without predators. Kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, emus, rosellas, kookaburras and king parrots can be seen from the house. Koalas live 20 km up the road while lyrebirds can be heard at a times. What do I do... The books I write and publish seek to recover ancient wisdom, this is, the wisdom from the original inhabitant of this planet. We all are indigenous to some extend. In my case I was born in the Catalan Pyrenees, in the land of the Ceretani, a branch of the Iberians. While the land I live in is Gunaikurnai, an indigenous nation of the Australian South-east. This two places are antipodal, as they are in opposite sides of the planet Earth. This tells me that alongside with the connection to our ancestral land, we need to extend our arms to embrace as much diversity as possible. So perhaps by living as far as I can from where I was born I’m trying to embrace the whole planet... I believe that another way of embracing the world is by intermixing our genes so that we can become one brown race with many cultures, many hues. This is why my first book talks about the alchemical process that in my opinion is required to achieve this humanity of one colour with many hues. The second book tries to recover the knowledge that the Incas had about the chakras and the soul anatomy. I’m currently finishing another two books, expected to be ready by the end of the year. More about the place… We live in sacred land, a land protected by the ancestors of those who walked it since the beginning. It is a land that has never been stained by war, so the vibrational imprint is very pure. The valley is called W Tree, one of the only two places in Australia that has a nature related name. It is home to a very diverse community, with a Tibetan Centre, two eco-villages and several businesses such as WWOOF Australia. I live in one of those two communities. The community is on the slopes of Mt Murrindal, which in the Gunaikurnai language means thunderbolt. From a feng-shui perspective Mt Murrindal is the head of a dragon, it is the point of intersection of two ley lines. 350 million years ago volcanoes surrounded the area. Later on the rind of fire moved a few thousand kilometres to the East, to New Zealand and the Pacific. The house is located at the intersecting point where the lava of those volcanoes touched the old shore of the Gondwana Ocean. This is why just around the house four types of soil is to be found: red clay, remaining of the lava; white soil, sediment of the previous ocean; black basalt and finally yellow clay. Four colours that like the four races I mix to get a rich soil in minerals and nutrients.

Area: WalesHello! We are currently looking for a couple or a single person with a special interest and some skills in woodwork and gardening to come to stay with us for a month from 9th May. We live on a small holding, set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful location, with its own history and heritage, cuisine, traditions, myths and culture. We live in a medieval farmhouse with lots of interesting and unique features, undergoing renovation. Our home is on the outskirts of a small village, and has spectacular views of the surrounding landscape! The village has around 110 houses in total, a small cafe, village pub, church and village hall where various events take place. Currently living in our house is myself (retired man), my female partner (working full time), and most of the time one of our daughters (in her early twenties). We have about 30 chickens, 2 outdoor cats, occasionally dog sit and are visited by lots of wildlife. Our land has several different varieties of native fruit trees, which we harvest and process into juice. We also grow seasonal vegetables and various flowers. Our eggs are taken to a local market and sold. Although we are not registered Organic, we do not use any harmful chemicals or pesticides. Our house is heated by radiators, underfloor heating, and a wood burning stove in the living room. We are passionate about our home and the work we are doing and would love to share it with you! I am 62 and started learning woodwork when I was 12! I've worked as a professional carpenter and builder, and am patient and willing to share my knowledge/skills. My partner enjoys gardening, and speaks fluent English & Dutch, as well as small amounts of other languages. We are all happy to teach or help with learning English. Last year we hosted eight sets of volunteers, who helped us create a new wood store, develop a new workshop, install an Oak floor in our main sitting room, as well as helping to process vast quantities of fruit and produce from our orchard and garden. Our pictures show various volunteers helping us. This year we plan to complete some of the projects started last year, and continue work on restoring the oldest part of our house. We will be: - Making and installing large Oak doors - Installing windows made last year - completing making window frames - finishing digging out a ground floor room, ready to underpin the stone walls - installing an insulated limecrete floor - restoring old oak beams - installing some new beams, in preparation for a new Oak floor There will also be work in the orchard and garden throughout the year, sowing, planting and harvesting. If you are interested please contact us. We ALWAYS reply, but we particularly look for people with some relevant skills all ready and will help you develop new ones. We always leave feedback for those who have visited us, and welcome you to do the same.
Area: Languedoc RoussillonHi there! Would you like to help us to restore and renovate an old property in the beautiful mediaeval town of Pezenas in Mediterranean France? ABOUT YOU AND THE ROLE We're looking for fit young volunteers aged 18-30 who have enthusiasm and who are happy to do physical work. This will involve some of the following: building, plumbing, electrical, plastering, woodwork, stonework, roofing, painting. If you have some experience of any of these then that’s great! If you have little or no experience, but are an enthusiastic and happy person, physically fit and prepared to do anything, then you can learn a lot from us and our master builder on this project. TIMESCALES: We're looking for two new volunteers from NOW or in the next few weeks and we can't plan too far in advance. If you can't arrive for some months, please don't contact us yet. Minimum stay of two weeks, longer stays are welcome. We start early but finish early in the afternoon, leaving you time to yourselves after that. There are lots of opportunities to explore the region. When volunteers have to move on, we need new guys to replace them. We're looking for one or two new volunteers to start now! Unfortunately we can’t accept two people travelling together, sorry, because then they leave together which can cause us difficulties in replacing two people at the same time. ABOUT US AND THE PROJECT If you got involved, you’d be able to say you were part of the restoration of a mediaeval French property and that you helped to return it to its former glory! I'm Sara, originally from Budapest, and my husband is originally from London. We’re friendly people, fully integrated into French life and our friends are mostly French. We run a small tourism business here in the Mediterranean area of the South of France. This includes things like villa accommodation, canal boat holidays, wine tours, kayaking, pleasure flights, day trips, history tours, horseriding, etc. Kind regards, Sara
