Workaway works on word of mouth and local publicity.. If you like the idea and want to do your part in helping promote the site then please print out a poster and display it in a noticeable place.
Good ideas of where to hang a poster would be; Backpackers, youth hostels , travellers bars , small hotels, local notice boards...anywhere where you think travellers might benefit from seeing the workaway message.
Thank you so much and have a great time travelling :)

Area: ConnachtHi I live in a cottage with a quarter acre garden and polytunnel. I recently opened a Raw Vegan Cafe in Westport, Co. Mayo. (voted the best place to live in Ireland 2012). This is the only Raw cafe in the West of Ireland and indeed the second in Ireland. Our home is approx 10 miles east of Westport. We lived in Italy for two years before returning to Ireland in Aug 2012. My kids went to Italian school and can speak the language but are a bit rusty at the moment. The position at the Cafe is no longer available.
Area: AlentejoWe are a Spanish family running a horse riding business in Portugal. We offer you a multicultural experience. Our organic farm is located in Marvao, a touristic place in the wild nature with very beautiful sceneries, next to the Spanish border. The father, Jose, is a doctor and has to work often. The mother, Maria, studies Political Science. And the 5 "children", from 17 to 27 years old, come to help whenever they can. So we need someone who could look after the 16 horses (a donkey and a mule included), 5 hours per day, 5 days a week. In the business, we do everything: horseback rides in the nature with tourists, horseriding lessons, hippotherapy, break in horses... We need someone that has been already in touch with horses, love them and likes to take care of them, and someone who is enthousiastic and not afraid of hard work.
