Area: AndaluciaWe are a couple, ( Stefan, American and Mona, English of Indian descent ) with 2 children, running a busy restaurant with rooms in a beautiful tranquil very rural village in Southern Spain. Nearby we have a farm and orchard mainly growing olives but also now growing veggies and fruits for the restaurant. We are solar powered and using well water so completely off the grid. We need help with the farm/orchard as we are so busy with the business. Ideally someone with gardening/growing experience is what we would like as it is not a simple task dealing with our plot! we have 4 dogs who need walking and caring for also chickens. English with some Spanish or desire to learn would be best as this is a rural and typical Andalucian community. Flexible outdoorsy people, happy multi- tasking, and keen on nature as this is far from city life! We are currently looking for help either a couple or 2 friends willing to share a room/bed. WE have 2 children aged 9 and 12 who need supervising especially in August when they are not in school so patience is KEY! The winter months we are only there at weekends so its a mix of being on your own and spending weekends as a family. Some simple construction/painting jobs and chores around the house also feature. You need to be reliable self motivated and able to fend for yourselves, cut wood etc, make fires. Right now looking for a couple/help for November 3- 4 WEEKS STAY. TO HELP HARVEST OLIVES WHICH IS QUITE HARD WORK. After that we are looking for help again in January and it is ideal then for either a family or a couple who likes to be alone as we don't use our farmhouse for the month of January. Please contact us if you think you are right for this lifestyle, work.

Area:We are the registered organization in Tanzania dealing with awareness creation to the youths on the challenges that face the youngsters and the environment at large through volunteering to teach in schools (kindergarten, primary & secondary) and colleges. Our main concerns are education, health and environment. We work with local centers that keep orphans whose parents either died with HIV/AIDS or kids that were dumped / abandoned. With these centers, volunteers will have a chance to teach English, counting/maths, various sports and songs and help to determine and stimulate the kids’ talents and instruct them accordingly with love and care.
Area: CaliforniaOur sanctuary is located on a secluded and truly charming stretch of the Sierra Nevada foothills in Northern California. We are a small, "spiritual family" living our highest ideals and sharing that process with others. Living off-grid since 2002 has allowed us to develop our own harmonious, workable homesteading model, that is centered around authentic experience of the Divine through meditation and yoga. We welcome those who want to experience the gifts of such a lifestyle for work exchanges or internships. We also have a busy schedule of structured retreats led by both residents and our extended spiritual community. Adjacent to state park land, the retreat acreage is a scenic blend of meadows, seasonal creeks with waterfalls and picturesque views of the rolling foothills that line the Yuba river canyon. The retreat center serves as both the facility for visiting guests and as a sustainable homestead for the current long-term residents and co-founders. Solar panels provide electricity, an artesian well flows with sweet water, and a large, booming garden/orchard yields much of the food year round. The atmosphere is informal and homey, appealing to those who do not feel drawn to organized settings. The facilities in general are simple, this is not a polished yoga resort. No saunas, hot tubs or lavish studios, just enough comfortable space to gather for meals, classes or events and a wild and diverse wilderness to enjoy all around us. Think high-vibration rural homestead, with a touch of elegance.
