Area: ScotlandWe are a Christian retreat house on the shores of Iona, and just a stone's throw from the world famous Iona Abbey. We offer our guests a quiet place to spend some time with God, in nature, and in fellowship with each other. We provide wholesome home cooked meals, daily services, and a warm welcome. But we can't do this without help! Volunteers are a very necessary and integral part of our staff team. We have an immediate need of someone to join us until mid-late September.
Area: New South WalesMy partner and I run a small 42ha farm near Coffs Harbour on the beautiful North coast of NSW. We grow a variety of vegetables, fruit and Macadamia nuts. Our farm was very run down and we are in the process of restoring it along with renovating the house (almost finished) and gardens. We are not registered as organic however we use bio-diverse and eco-friendly systems to grow our produce.
Area: Upper AustriaHi there, I have recently moved to a farm in a little village in Upper Austria, close to the border of Germany/Bavaria and the Czech rep., located between Passau and Linz. The countryside is very beautiful for walking, biking, riding or just to relax. A swimming lake is a short hop from here and in the wintertime is it possible to go skiing in a ski resort close by. For those who have fun in golfing, there is a golf court too, and my neighbor has a tennis court. I am in mid- 40's, own 6 Icelandic horses and 3 cats and I am currently building my home here. Originally, I am from Munich but have traveled a long time around Austria (and a little through Iceland:) since I came here to settle down, in order to have all my animals nearby and lots of fresh air... I have several professions but my favourite one is to work with people (and) with horses. Besides that, I love to grow my own food. One of my hobbies is to sing, so if you are a musician, it would be great if we could practice together. (e-piano available)
Area: Pays de la LoireWe are a semi-retired couple (57/64) who live in a small village about 5km from the beaches at Longeville-sur-Mer and Jard-sur-Mer on the West coast of France in the Vendée. We have a large garden and our current projects are really all to do with making the most of what we have here outside. We have two dogs, a cat and 4 chickens At home we speak English although I am happy to speak to you in French if you wish.
Area: JämtlandHi there, we live in a big house of 800 m2 with a lake below and mountins behind, in Jormvattnet, a mountainvillage in north of Sweden. At the moment there are only two of us, Pexo and Maria. We have friends and family visiting often, so sometimes we are more people in the house. A soap and bodycare workshop also resides here. When we are more people living in the house we cook togheter and have gatherings around things that concerns the work of the house and what comes up in the proccess of living together. We like music and to socialise and to live the life we are offered here where the sun lights up the summer sky all night long and the winters are tough and booring :) Many possiblilities to walk in the forrest and in season (Aug-Sept) pick berries or mushrooms. Theres a canoe and bikes to borrow. Fishing is big up here. Moose and raindeer, even bear is not uncommonly seen. Wintertime can be grim and isolated with lots of snow, barrels of wood to haul and cold weather. But also cosy and calm with a live fire in the livingroom, sauna in the basement and lots of indoorsspace. Skiing and other winteractivities is best in March and April when the light is coming back. Right now we´re looking for people especially in May, to help with building makeshift growboxes and planting things. Also rennovating windows and working with the wood for heating the house is a big need this month. If interested, hit the mailbox.
