Area: SjællandWe do not need any more help in July. Danish style, old farm house and family of 4 with a creative approch to the world. We love when the World can come to us with travelers from all over the world. We have a little house with a room on the topfloor, thats the guest room. Free internet. Hammocks in the garden, when it is sunny. We can always use help with different things in and around the house and garden. And cooking. Other times we have very specific tasks and jobs that needs to be done. We only look a couple of month max, ahead deciding what to do,and therefore we find it difficult to make arrangements to fare into the future. The help we ask of you could be, and could also be something else : Spring : Garden work. Getting the garden ready for summer. Feed the chickens with weeds. Help painting and maintaining the house. Cooking the food. Summer : Help in the garden Maintaining the house Cook food. Make jam, picking fruit. Feed the chickens with weeds Fall: Clean and give oil on the terres and balcony before winter.

We work at home and are self employed. We do mainly illustrations and advertising work. We only look a couple of month ahead deciding what to do, and therefore we can only make plans a few month in advance, most times just one month. If you know blacksmith work we are very interested to learn, and have some equipment for this kind of work. We are trying to make the outdoor area more artistic. Are you creative, with you own ideas, we find it very interesting what other people think, and could contribute to the garden area. We really enjoy, when inspiration can be a to-way thing.

We also have juggling equitment. We would love to tast what you can cook. We make most of our bread our self. We have chickens that needs to be looked after, they eat weeds from the garden, and in return we get the best eggs for us to use. It's our guest house on the picture. Nice bed for 1 or 2. We have blankets and duvets. Free internet. We can mainly host from May and until September. We expect 4 hours work 5 days per week or 25 hours pr.week, and that you help in the kitchen the days that you are attending the meals since we are not a hotel but a family.

Also it is importent that you are able to do things on your own. Please write when you would like to join us, and for how long you are planning on staying.

Area: DargleWelcome to the Rainbow Commons!! The Rainbow Sustainability Commons is a homestead and demonstration site practicing permaculture and experimenting in ecological and cooperative living. We are registered as a ‘Not for Profit Organisation’ and stewarding 3 acres of land. We’re located within a property of 300 hectares of land that includes a mountain, streams, waterfalls, and forests. We have a food garden with a small expanding food forest. A variety of foods are grown but no cash crops—we are not a commercial farm. We are aspiring to be self-sufficient and are almost there! We’re off the grid so power comes from the sun (solar panels and batteries) and an occasional generator. Meals are cooked with a solar cooker, or gas on cloudy days. There is an abundance of fresh spring water. We have 9 beehives. Our commitment to sustainability: We... • built our own home using locally harvested and reclaimed wood. We insulated our home with our plastic waste and we heat it with alien wood. • use a small solar energy system for power, • developed permaculture gardens and food forest, • use a compost toilet the compost of which we use when we plant our trees, • have an irrigated, covered tree nursery that we created from a ditch in the ground where we grow indigenous trees from seed, • have a solar cooker, a solar oven, a solar dehydrator, and a solar hot water system, • build yurts for our extra spaces (such as guest accommodation) using the available alien plants around us, • have a worm farm and feed them with dung we collect on the land • have a horse for cutting the grass in the summer, • keep chickens for eggs and tractoring in our gardens, and • have 9 beehives. • home educate our children with a "free learning" style. (We won the Food & Trees for Africa provincial award in the Edu-Plant competition in 2012--the first homeschool ever to enter and we won for KZN!)

They co-parent 2 children—Oriah age 11 and Kei age 9. We have a cat, Shiva, and a dog, Ashanti. We have a vision to live more sustainably on the earth and to make the world a better place through sharing and learning about this path with others. We enjoy spending time in nature, attending Rainbow gatherings, playing musical instruments and singing, crafting, hunting for mushrooms, going on walks, storytelling, fire dancing, finding joy in the simple things. We think of ourselves as spirituals beings. We affiliate ourselves with the Unitarian Universalist faith (check out www.uua.org if you’re intrigued!). We share earth-centred rituals and celebrations together such as Solstices and those that mark the change of seasons. Spiritual growth and openness to others’ spiritual paths are important values.

Area: CaliforniaWe are a young family with two children (8 yo, 5 yo) and a dog (yellow lab) living just outside of San Francisco (Alameda, Bay Farm Island). We are both working professionals. My husband is the Principal of the local middle school (grades 6-8) and I run a healthcare consulting business and at times have to travel. We are looking for help with the children, walking the dog and general housework (cooking, laundry and dishes). We have had workaways living with us consistently for the past years and LOVED the experience. It has always been a positive experience and we are accustomed to welcoming new people to our family. We are a fun loving well-traveled family, last summer we spent a month in Bali, and prefer to meet new people and learn about new cultures than have a bored babysitter. We prefer to host workaway volunteers for a minimum of 6 weeks, but prefer longer. Our current workaway is with us for 3 months which we consider ideal. The hardest part is saying good-bye but we have continued to keep in touch. No couples/friends. Females preferred.
Area: MunsterWe are a busy family of four ( two boys ages 4 and 8) living in Waterford city in a green and quiet area which is very close to the city centre. We live about a ten minute drive to the closest beach and forty minutes to the mountains so we have the best of everything within easy reach. We live an active life with lots of sports and socialising involved. We have room for one workawayer only. We would like someone energetic, easy going, patient, kind and flexible to come and help with the kids - to be an extra pair of hands when its busy, to do some babysitting in the afternoons and evenings and help around the house with the daily routine. We need someone for minimum 9 months. Most importantly you must genuinely like being with, helping and playing with children! Experience with kids is essential.
