Area: Feltre is the nearest town 2 miles away, 40min walking distance but we often drive and will be happy to give you a lift. Venice is 60 miles away or 2h by train. A mountain bike is available for you to use.Help needed now for some fisical outside work, bring your smile and enthusiam and enjoy the unique Italian sunshine, cuisine and stunning natural surroundings! Hi, we are a young and dynamic Anglo-Italian couple with 3 lovely children. We run a bed & breakfast and holiday let business from our beautiful house which is set 80km north of Venice and at the foothills of the Dolomites National Park, north-east of Italy. We are looking for cheerful, dynamic and hardworking volunteers with lots of common sense and able to work with own initiative from March through to October time. Help is needed now to prepare the house for guests, painting and decorating, maintaing our woodland, digging the veggie garden, fixing and building things and maybe entertaining the kids if you enjoy spending time with them. We love our job as it's a great way to meet lots of interesting people from all over the world. That's why we think welcoming workawayers is a good idea and a wonderful opportunity for both sides. We can usually provide a bedroom with bathroom, excellent Italian food and local wine. On your days off you can visit the many art cities of the Veneto region (Venice, Padua, Verona ecc.) or hike in the National Park. We live on the hedge of woodland so we would welcome people that love to live in contact with nature.
Area: South DakotaMy wife and I are a pretty young (early 30s) and easy-going couple. I'm the benevolent overlord at a small advertising agency in downtown Deadwood, and my wife is a trained archeologist (although she currently works as a finance director and goddess of administration at my office). We spend most of our time working on our house, but we also like to read, write, cook, hike, mountain bike and entertain our small black cat, named Minou. We also love to travel, especially to Europe: I studied abroad in the UK, Laura got her master's degree in Belgium, I proposed in France, and we got married in Greece. Alas, most of our spending money has gone into restoring our house since we bought it two years ago, so it's been a while since we've gone anywhere overseas. Our trips lately have been over to Yellowstone, which is 7 hours by car.
Area: LungauWe are an organic farm in the middle of Austrian Alps. We are a family of 8 people and occasionally willing workers from all over the world. We have milking cows and milking goats for making different kinds of raw-milk cheese. Crops and vegetables for self-sufficiency. We are engaged with the idea of "slow food" - regional, good quality and organic food. The surroundings of our farm give many opportunities for hiking in the mountains.
Area: North Rhine WestphaliaI try to live a spiritual and more alternative life including daily meditation. I try to take my food out of the land and I am also a practicing freegan. I live in a very old small Village 50 km south west of Cologne. Nearly 4 years ago I decided to leave the big city life, to start a more natural way of being. My place is a little ancient farm with a very beautiful land containing a little stream, source, fishponds, little forest, vegetable garden... even if it’s still chaotic and messy I love this tiny piece of earth. For one year I have run this place alone and so i really appreciate helping hands. The jobs are varied and diverse, From finishing the summer kitchen (with straw bales and clay), building the bread oven, constructing of a small garden house, help in the veggie garden, working on the fishponds, building stone walls, renovating the 400 year old farmhouse, help in the kitchen, help me with my two amazing little daughters who are living spare time with me, building a new barn, help in the violin workshop...in fact changing chaos into paradise. I try to use as much as possible ecological materials like sheep wool isolation, clay walls, wood frame constructing, stone walls...... For me as host it’s not simply looking for helping hands, I like to share my house, lifestyle, dreams, knowledge and enjoying the time together. I like to cook together, singing round the campfire and all this hippi stuff. I have already had more than 70 workawayers, helpers and woofers, and my experience shows me that I prefer People above 21, who have no problems with breakfast at 9:00, and see themselves as open minded, spiritual, Rainbow people, colourful, easy going... About my self: I am a Master Violin Maker and Music therapist i have a love for ancient methods and skills and try to grow my vegetables in a biodynamic, permaculture style including the rhythm of the moon. Further i am busy with different natural and shamanic healing and tantric traditions. I love making music, joining rainbow gatherings,.... Living here is very basic. Depending on the number of helpers it can happen that you have to share a room with other workawayers Workaway for me, is a great opportunity to invite the world to my little place and to help me realise my dream of a more sustainable life. Without all the helping hands i wouldn’t be able. It’s for me a matter of sharing and I really like to host people.
Area: VictoriaOver the Winter months, May till November we will only be hosting specific people. Please contact us for more details. Dates available for us to host are 16th - 25th of June. Then 25th July onwards. We receive many requests from helpers each week and need people that can reply quickly and accurately to our standard list of questions that we ask all potential helpers. Due to the limit of text available in the workaway reply email we require an email address of yours to reply so that we can send our standard list of questions to. All applicants must tell us the exact dates that they would prefer to stay here. We are situated on the coast in East Gippsland and due to relatively busy workloads we are happy to host people with accommodation and meals in exchange for 4 hours a day of work to generally maintain our property. Work hours can be flexible to allow for working a full day and having the next day free. We like our helpers to work for the 4 hours a day Monday - Friday, 2 hours on Saturday and Sunday is a day off. We prefer to do the majority of the work here early in the day, especially in Summer before the day becomes to hot. We appreciate helpers who are able to be ready to work at 8.00 am. If you are the type of person who likes to sleep late in the day then our home is not the place for you. The majority of the work will be household work and gardening, we are working towards expanding our vegetable garden and preparation for that will be one task. Our small town has limited shopping facilities and is usually a very quiet place so if you are interested in night life and big city attractions then it is not the place for you. There is always some gardening or housework that needs attending to but never any really physically demanding work. We place a fairly strong emphasis on helpers being a part of the household and helping prepare evening meals and to participate in the clean up afterwards. We prefer to welcome helpers who want to stay for 2 weeks but we will also consider those who want to stay for 1 week minimum. Accommodation consists of a large bedroom with double bed and a separate bathroom and is best suited to singles, couples or friends who are happy to share a bed. Wireless internet is available and of course there are are miles of beaches and coastal scenery to enjoy. V Line http://www.vline.com.au/home/ train and bus services can be used to get directly here from Melbourne or Canberra and Premier Motor Service www.premierms.com.au buses can be used to travel to here from Sydney. A few photos below of our "backyard", the front yard, helpers bathroom and bedroom. We welcome volunteers who are willing to learn about the area and culture by joining in daily activities.
