Area: AndaluciaI am a single mother of a 9 years old boy. Do you want to come to Málaga from September for at least FOUR MONTHS ? I am a violin teacher at Málaga Conservatory. We are looking for a native English spoken person, an optimistic, creative and active but also responsible and mature, to teach my son English and to take care of him some afternoons while I am working, and help with the house. My son loves sports. We already had a volunteer from the UK and he is was a very nice person, I am sure we wil all get on very well We live in Málaga in a nice area, there is a swimming pool in the building and the beach is 20 minutes walking. I am sure it will be a nice experience for all of us¡¡ best regards Elena
Area: KolonakiTo leave the world a better place; that is the sign of a successful person. I am a photographer working on my own projects in Athens, Greece. I have a studio in Kolonaki, the Chic center of Athens for Art + Design. Looking for upbeat, positive people who are genuinely interested working *here* not planning their world tour and have no respect for other peoples privacy ! The studio is a no smoking environment. Gossiping is not rewarded here and can be a reason for you to be asked to leave. You have to be able to manage your own space, it is not a hotel, here. You are required to do your own cooking, clean up after yourself, do your sheets and laundry by yourself. There is no maid service. I offer a lot in terms of hospitality, so I expect real work from you. The work is four hours a day. Cooking and cleaning up is on your time. My family is working in the States and I am taking care of the family property here in Athens and I need your help...
Area: New MexicoWe are a 60s couple with grown children (who live elsewhere), and a large homestead with orchards, gardens, goats, dogs, cats, ducks, one turkey, and chickens. We live in the high desert of Northern New Mexico, and in addition to our hobby farm we enjoy summer hiking, winter skiing, and getting together with friends, neighbors, and family. We live within bicycling distance of the town of Taos, in a rural area situated on a Western-facing hill that gives us views of 100 miles or more and the best sunsets in the West. We are surrounded by pinon and sagebrush and most evenings (reputedly 300 out of 365 a year) we look up into a star-filled sky. This spring eight baby goats were born to our six does. Our three large goldendoodle dogs enjoy watching the baby kids as they frisk and jump; they keep an eye on the ducks and chickens as well. Our three cats are more interested in prowling for birds or rabbits. Next to the goat yard is a walled garden with raised beds that run on drip irrigation. We also have strawberry gardens, extensive raspberry beds, and fruit tree orchards, as well as rock gardens that hold more perennial beds of flowers and currants. We enjoy meeting and interacting with young people who are engaged with the world and interested to experience new cultures and environments. We feel our homestead offers a good experience of life in our region that is closely tied to nature. Taos is a special place. Although out of the way, and quite rural, its high mountain setting is called home by local Tewa pueblo residents who have lived here for 1500 or more years, by Hispanic families who came many generations ago, and by more recent Anglo settlers who were called by its rustic, barren beauty, its hiking and skiing trails, its scenic rivers, its big skies and memorable sunsets.
Area: JaénWe are looking for serious nature lover who would like to volunteer helping us around the house, the land and with our dogs (3). At 15 km from the first village, the volunteering work will pretty much be staying onsite and use your free time to paint, read or go for long walks in the country side. Any volunteers with building experience welcome too!!
Area: Midi PyreneesWe are a couple who live and work in the hills between Toulouse and the Pyrenees, in the south of France. Gaia is Italian, I'm British, Linden is our 6 month old baby boy and we have a dog and a cat. At the moment we are looking for a reliable trustworthy couple who can house-sit for us for a few weeks while we're away. We are leaving for a tour with our band which will take us to Provence, England and then Italy before returning in the second week of august. Your work will not be too stressful, but you will need to feed the cat and tend the vegetable patch, strim the garden etc. We have a gypsy caravan that needs restoring, and, if you have relevant skills we may ask you to get started on this, and our aquaponics system (fish and vegetables living in synergie... in batchtubs) could do with being installed and tested.... our village is quite isolated, so you'll need either a car, or a string pair of cycling legs to get to the markets and shops. However we have a lot of frined in the area who will be happy to involve you in what's going on in the area. This is a great chance to see this area in the summer, where there are colourful markets, music, street theatre, fetes and other gatherings practically all the time. We'd prefer a couple and someone who can be here ASAP! About us: We work in the creative arts, I am a one-man-band in the traditional, drum kit on the back and playing multiple instruments together, sense. Gaia graduated in Indian languages and she is a street performer. We run a number of music based projects from here mainly based upon intercultural collaboration and we have a small recording studio here where we bring together musicians from around the world 2 or 3 times a year. We are trying to develop our lives as independently as possible. We run a small record label from here, an association for the diffusion of cultural and artistic activities, and we have musical activities developing all the time. We are also hoping to put an aquaponics system in place this spring, some raised vegetable beds, get some chickens buld a coop, plant fruit trees and much more. we live as simply as we can, we're miles from supermarkets so we go maybe once every 6 weeks to stock up on essentials - what we can't make, grow or buy from local markets, we make beer, mozarella (with plans for other cheeses) and so on. we'd like to do some redecorating perhaps, but we never have the time, we eat everything as long as it's local, non GM and preferably organic, that doesn't mean we can't cater for vegetarians but we do eat meat that either comes from local farms or from our back yard! We don't have much land but we do want to maximise it. Talula our border collie is 2 years old and is completely and utterly insane - in a good way, she's extremely gentle and sweet natured but she is obsessed with tennis balls to a disturbing degree, and this can be distracting - hitting balls into the field with a hurley (hockey stick) is a large part of any workawayers job!
