Area: WalesWe are a wood workshop that is part of a Craft Centre in Snowdonia National Park, Wales. We make furniture, gifts, and artwork out of reclaimed and recycled materials. We use "waste products" that can be turned into beautiful pieces of art. Our workshop is connected to a small shop that sells our pieces. We run workshops teaching people how to make their own creations out of recycled wood. No forests are harmed in the making of our products, and we are proud of the unique forms and shapes that recycled wood can create.
Area: LiguriaI decided to live in the country because I prefer peace and nature. what I offer in my Italian house is a simple way of life out of town. I'm working out often during the day, ; It is also a small bedandbreakfast and often I have paying guests or friends who are there to find me, especially in summer. " Good season" means for us the time of spring and summer, when nature explodes and the temperature is really nice: The house is situated in a valley in the mountains of Liguria, 20 km from the coast, mountains and forests around us. So... the feeling of winter is different: fire in the house, wood to ciop,silent nature around. This message is addressed to those who enjoy some time away from the chaos of the city, close to nature
Area: Tuscany**** IMPORTANT: Please, read the profile before writing to us. Thanks **** I have a vision, a simple life with right people... In this little organic farm (with many animals) we can always use two hands more... preferably someone equipped with manual skills (handyman), able to build or repair a hut or build a fence.. Someone rustic, easy going and passionate in their field. Unfortunately we do not have professional equipment, just common tools ... :/so you will have to use your imagination sometimes! Current projects that we would appreciate help with in addition to daily animal care(anything from wanting to try to expertise is welcome of course) include: -constructing huts from natural materials(a lot, a lot of different aspects to help with) -computer issues -fixing up the chicken coops. I like shared the good times with 'good' people, those who are happy, motivated, easy going and very open minded... If you are getting fed up with busy city life, and want to step ‘Into the Wild’ (just like the film but with an happy end) then this is the place for you. A true life in the countryside of Tuscany. Honesty I prefer volunteers (single) to come and stay here for long periods of time (this is not a B&B, Hostel or Couch Surfing) hoping everything goes well between us. I have an immense interest/desire to construct natural buildings/structures made only from our earth.. I want a person to be 'transported' when they come here, to a place of fantasy and creativity..Using methods like 'Cob' to construct these beautiful homes that are made from the earth, it would be similar to something of a 'Hobbit Village'... *My goal (dream) is to form one day a community(8-10 people) here... made up of people who share the same goals (want to live the simple life and become self-sufficient.. freeing themselves from the 'money god').. but this is not easy... A community of people who are different but compliment one another, where each person contributes their talent or passion to the collective. A --But first we need to clear the space and create the huts to accommodate more people .. (but we know..'Rome is not built in a day'..) We live the good life. Everything (well almost everything!) we eat is grown or made here on the farm: olive oil, wine, eggs and vegetables and we eat all our meals together. And we hope to become increasingly self-sufficient. We are located in Tuscany, Maremma is the heart of the etruscan land/tuscan (one of the most beautiful place in Tuscany landscape) countryside not very far from the sea, the city of Grosseto and the thermal baths of Saturnia (it's a magic place for warm water bath). To see the exact position search with Google maps 'Il Pollaio del Re'. Music is also very important, I am always thinking of the 'soundtrack of my life'... (many memories) I think the life is special and we have only 1 to live..why be unhappy(people live in the city surrounded by thousands of others yet feel totally alone..
Area: East Gippsland, VictoriaI am booked until April 1. Anyone welcome AFTER April 1. I live in beautiful, East Gippsland, Victoria, in the small town of Orbost, halfway between Melbourne and Canberra, and on the highway to Sydney. (Melbourne is 4 to 5 hours away by car, longer by bus. Canberra likewise. Sydney is about 8 by car, longer by bus.) Orbost is close to the beach, mountains, national parks, walking and bike tracks, and caves. It truly is a glorious little place. We are driving distance to some other beautiful areas. I moved here, mid 2012, as local minister but a large part of my work is as a comunity development worker in some remote mountainous villages ... Again, in beautiful country. I appreciate travel companions. I frequently travel amongst part of the lovely Snowy Mountains, and volunteers may have the chance to see some amazing places- often in parts of the world few usual tourists would go, especially in the regional national parks. My garden used to be a showplace, but is now rather overgrown. It has potential. I envision that part of it could become an open garden, a place of peace and reflection for my community. My house and garden back onto the church grounds, so there is potential for what I have here to be a part of the bigger whole. I am raising hens at present... I enjoy watching their antics. Summer is a pretty time here. Summer is short, but hot. There are regular public buses to the beaches, so if you don't have a car, we can work something out. Orbost is accessible by public transport. There is none in town though, so we walk, or I drive us. Still we are talking small town here, so distance is not great. Life gets hectic here at times, but there are always interesting things to do and see, and people to meet... Even in my own job sphere you will meet fun and quirky people. You would be most welcome to come... Help out... Explore... Have fun.... Although I am new to this program, I have had experience in Helpx, and in couch-surfing. I do not offer second year visa work. Sorry.
Area: central area in the city, near the coast (no beach though) where they've built a park along the seaHi to everyone who wants to visit China, Since I've already accepted a long-term workawayer, therefore I can only host short-term travellers who can stay at my place up to a week. The other option is you can stay with me between your trips in China. There's no work for you, all I ask is to bring your stories and you are welcome to teach me and my family any skills you have, such as languages, music instruments (I play piano btw). You can still send me a request if you want to stay more than a week, because I'm also doing a favour for my friends who have kids that really want to improve their English. English is one of the compulsory subjects in Chinese schools, plus studying abroad is a growing trend in China, but people don't have any chance to practice. Doesn't matter whether you are a native English speaker or not, they only need someone to push them to speak. Shenzhen is at the border between mainland China and HongKong. I can see Hongkong from where I live. Only needs couple of hours drive from HK international airport. Public transport (e.g. ferry and train) is slightly slower but still convenient. I'm a student in the UK and won't go back home until July 2013. But my place is fully booked in July. Since most of my friends only know little English, and not familiar how this works, so they can only host after I go back. There is maybe more work for you during summer holidays (July & August) if you are staying with my friends, but it is also more likely that they will have time take you to some cool places during that period. look forward to hear from you Cheers Wency
