Area: süd BurgenlandHello! We are a small family. Günter, Karin, Gabriel and Laurin. We live at a place with 20.000m². Till now we live in two woodern caravans. This year we are happy to build a framehouse. We'll build our house mostly by our own. We are interested in people who like building a house :) We have ducks and chickens and some fishes (in the swimming pond). And we are looking forward to make our garden growing - vegetables and fruits. Karin is a midwife, doing homebirth and is on call mostly the whole year. Günter stays at home with our two active and self confident boys, doing housework, gardening and building. Karin and Günter teach their son at home. Hans Breuer the normadic shepard of austria is Günter's dad. Hans, Mingo and their two little children also live at our place. They are also hosts. That's why you can meet some sheep too. ;) We are interested in people. And we'll find something to work for nearly everybody :) We like: meeting new people, children, playing games in the evening, making music (singing), swimming in our pond, eating healthy and natural food,... If you like to spend some time with us just mail us.
Area: Lot/DordogneWe are a British gay male couple. We own and run a small restaurant and bed & breakfast in south west France, situated on the edge of the Dordogne river in a very historic and touristic village. LOOKING FOR A PLACEMENT FROM THE 24TH AUGUST TO THE 14TH OF SEPTEMBER
Area: Langkawi (Kuah)We open a healthy lunch cafe, offer cooking classes and sell healthy products, besides developing our organic farm with vegetable garden, fruit trees and chicken. It is the brainchild of captain Eva, who restored her health with a diet of raw foods while on a 5-year sailing tour around the world. She has long dreamed of creating programmes to help young people lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. The project is still in its beginning stage and needs much more development and hard work. We are situated in Langkawi, a beautiful island close to the border with Thailand. On the farm we have 2 rooms, one is ideal for a couple and the other one with two beds to share. We also have two large tents (king size double mattress included). The work is mainly on the farm, in the vegetable garden, helping in the kitchen and producing our healthy products. Another project is about sailing cruises, where we need people who have good hospitality, cooking or some sailing skills. When you apply for this project, please mention your interests: are you interested to get involved in the Garden or the boat cruises?
Area: LazioI live on the top of a hill overlooking the medieval village of Torri in Sabina in Lazio one hour from Rome. This land has belonged to my family for generations, and my father was a producer of olive oil, as was his father. I continue this tradition with my husband, except that we no longer crush the olives ourselves, but take them to a local mill to produce the oil, which we in turn sell. My husband and I have 4 children, but only one now lives at home. The others are away at university. I am a teacher of mathematics at the local high school, and also teach ceramics in my studio in the evenings. My husband is an agronomist who, apart from his Monday to Friday job, manages to maintain 20 hectares of land and olive groves. My main interest is ceramics, and it is my dream to be able to teach in England or another English-speaking country, and to do this, I need to improve my English conversation. For this reason I would like someone to work with us who has English as their mother tongue.
Area: BavariaWe love our goats, cats, rabbits and chickens. In the future we are planning on welcoming more heritage animals, such as sheep, horses, and whatever other animal can help us be more self-sustainable. We started gardening with heirloom plants and found them delicious. Currently we are working on renovating the house in an environmentally friendly manner. For example, we incorporated a wall heater and cob plaster into the guest rooms. We would like to design a living room with floor heating that works with a solar water heater and a wood stove. We furthermore have many creative beautifying projects going on that appeal to the children we host. They can have fun here and at the same time learn about farming and alternative life styles. We live in a large copper-beech forest in Germany, that might become a National Park in the future. Bamberg is half an hour away, Würzburg and Nürnberg about an hour. Our town's people are awesome- the reason we moved here. My husband is from Seattle, I'm from Berlin. We would love to get to know you and learn from and with you!
