Area: Canary Islands (LA PALMA)Ours is a project born with the desire to "awaken" the potential in all of us, accompanying through a holistic approach towards a new consciousness in this unique era of change. For that purpose we offer regularly retreats, workshops, conferences of all kind: yoga, meditation, bio-dance, ayurveda, etc The centre is mantained by a small group of volunteers. At the moment we have already 2 long-term volunteers but we welcome more people with specific skills. We have different projects in mind : - To build a big pond, a dry toilet and an outdoor kitchen for the tipi area and the future camping site. - To plant more fruit trees and vegetables. - Also we welcome people that knows how to promote efficiently this kind of centre outside canary islands. The project is placed in the east side of La Palma, near the capital and the airport. It's surrounded by mountains, forrest, and it has wonderful sea views but is over 400m2 so is not so close to the beach and can be a bit cold in winter compared to other parts of canary islands but if you like nature and a quiet life you will feel in a paradise. We work towards a sustainable environment and welcome people who knows about permaculture. See you soon!

Area: South-West coast of Portugal, in the AlgarveWe are Dave, Sonya and Jip. We are a Dutch family living our dream near the South-West coast of Portugal surrounded by nature. We decided to 'go green' and continue living a different life style away from the city. It's fair to say we started a very ambitious project off the grid. Our main goal is to reconnect with nature, grow our own organic food, be self sufficient and create a beautiful glamping farm in which we will host and inspire others. Currently we are in a pioneering phase starting to roll out our inspirations by setting up a modern yurt, preparing our food forest and vegetable garden and much more. Since its just the three of us, we welcome friends, family and volunteers to help us build our paradise. Please check our calendar for availability. Muito obrigado Dave
Area: We are located on the beach front of Klong Dao on the beautiful Island of Koh Lanta in the south of Thailand, the sunsets are great! There are motorbikes and bicycles for rent, so you can easily discover this great Island on your free time. Other things to do: Lanta is a diving paradise! Snorkeling trips, Biking, Yoga, Meditation, Jogging on the beach, doggie walks at our animal shelter, and enjoying the laid back atmosphere. Luckily Lanta is not over populated with charter tourists like Phuket and Koh Samui. Keep in mind that it is a tropical country so the heat can be intense and humid, particularly between 11.00 and 16.00.Hard work since 2002 has brought us to where we are today - a successful beachfront concept on Koh Lanta with a unique approach and a different “way of thinking” than other places. A few things make us stand out from the crowd: 1. Our COMPASSION for animals in distress on the island. Our profits go to the animal welfare charity that the owner founded. 2. Our true PASSION for food and a desire to create a laid-back, and welcoming atmosphere for people from all around the world. Our place consists of: - A professional and fun open-air creative Thai Cooking School - A good but small restaurant one of the best on the Island, we serve a 6 dish Tasting menu that changes every day. - A small beach bar, with great cocktails (the talk of the town) - 9 cozy basic budget bungalows for people to rent, who appreciate what we are doing. - Our place is recommended in almost all world wide guide books - The old animal shelter was also here before until we built the new one 6 years ago which is 10 min. away with motorbike from us. We still do have some rescue animals here, at the moment 6 dogs and 23 cats. Junie Kovacs, the owner of this business and the founder of the animal welfare centre, gives everything she owns to the welfare of animals and lives a very simple life. By volunteering with us, YOU help to support the work of our Animal Welfare centre, get to know more about the Thai culture, people, the amazing food, also socializing with volunteers at our animal welfare centre. VOLUNTEER POSITIONS: 1. RECEPTION HELP (from March 10 2015 until May 1 2015) 2. HELP FROM A FOODIE (from Oct. 1 2014 until May 1 2015)
