Area: TuscanyCasentino Valley in the north-east of Tuscany. 670 mt. ...forest, mountains, meadows, river, nature... We live on the outskirts of a small hamlet at an altitude of 700m in Vallesanta, near Saint Frances of Assisi’s monastery. We are an Italian/ Irish family with three children 19, 12 and 8 years old. It is a beautiful area and in summer the climate is perfect – not too hot but warm enough to swim in the fresh clean water of the rivers nearby (see photos). We do not have an agricultural or holiday farm, but are simply a family who needs a hand to realise our aim to improve the place and to live a simple and natural life based on self-sufficiency. We sell at markets and fairs, exchange work and cooperate with other families in the area – act locally think globally. We have woodland for firewood and chestnuts and one hectare of land around the house for a vegetable garden and orchard. We need help with the various everyday tasks, in the garden, with the wood and with improvements to the house. Our diet is vegetarian and mainly organic. We share the gardening with our neighbours, Italian-German couple and two children, 8 and 11 years old, so meals may be divided between the two families. We speak, obviously, Italian and English, and a little Spanish and our neighbour speaks German.
Area: AsturiasWe need some help to watch after baby or domestic choes. The baby has now one year and sometimes the mum need some help for work a little bit in the house. The volenteer can work in the garden and maybe the animals, the goats or donkeys. Finally we need some help on the farm.
Area: North Rhine WestphaliaSince breaking my knee a couple of years ago, I have fallen behind with the gardening and would appreciate help with getting it all back into shape this summer. Lots of the greenery needs cutting back and the flower beds need a big tidy up. I still really enjoy gardening and will probably be pottering around with you but need help especially with anything that requires lifting and moving. Should the weather be rainy, I might get you to help with a few indoor painting jobs but nothing too strenuous. ---- Now the gardening is done and you see I need someone to repair the roof or someone you can do the painting work inside - glad to hear from somebody
Area: Martinborough/Gladstone, Wairarapa, Wellington RegionWe are a busy family of five with children aged 4,6 and 8 years. We live on a hill country sheep and beef farm 10 mins from the quaint town of Martinborough which is known for its wine, festivals and good food. Yet we are also only just over an hour from Wellington. A driver's licence would be an advantage. As a family we are involved in many sports and our hill country farm has walking/running tracks aplenty. We have loads of pets- 3 sheep dogs, 2 cats, chooks and in spring lambs and sometimes a calf. Although we now lease the farm to our neighbours we still have a few sheep and cattle. And we also help out on the farm during busy times. We run a homestay which tends to be fairly quiet over winter which lends itself well to utilising Workaway during this time. Aside from being able to help us out we think it would be great for our kids to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures.
