Area: ReykholtWe are a young couple that have a small environmentally friendly tourism farm in Iceland. In the land of our farm lies one of the largest lava caves in the world, Víðgelmir. This lava cave is preserved and we are looking for a couple in very good physical condition to help us with guided tours to the cave for people from all around. Also for other tasks regarding the tourism farm such as cleaning cottages, making breakfast and maintenance of the farm. The farm is located in the west of Iceland, close to the second largest glacier in the county, in the middle of the nature. It has many hiking paths, rivers, lakes, a waterfall, lava fields, Icelandic horses, birds and fish. We are looking for couples, preferably with guiding and service experience, to participate in our exchange program from end of May until the beginning of September and for a minimum stay of 9 weeks. On your days off you will have a car to be able to travel around Iceland. Since 2010 one of the main objectives of the tourism farm is to fund an artistic project. As an exchange worker, you are a very important member of our farm and act as a representative of our organization to the community at large. At the farm we believe in the the complex value of the infrastructure more than of the money that it is set to cost and this is why we believe in exchange. Furthermore we appreciate the work and achievements with a constant concern for people’s well being, needs and longings instead of a price. Our farm is a small company that is taking on a larger project that is only possible with the help of people that support and agree with what we propose and, most importantly, that feel that this experience can give back to them as much as to us. For a better understanding of what you can expect as an exchange worker and what is expected of you we ask you to contact us, and tell us about yourself, so we can send you more detailed information about the exchange program. Inquiries for the summer are welcome during the previous autumn and winter.

Area: Washington StateI practice permaculture, yoga, structural bodywork. In the peak of physical and spiritual health, a birth defect through a clot giving me a stroke. I am looking for people to help me with the garden, land, collecting herbs, making nutrition, reading. My husband is a project kind of guy and could help with the green house, and a few other things. Something I omitted in my profile and hype to do soon ,partly typing is a challenge. We practice minimalist communication, for spiritual reasons and developed from a technique called compassionate listening, we write notes, use hand gestures, which are easy to pick up. After my stroke was An easy transition. Tell us what you think about living in a quiet household, one might say a monastic lifestyle. Having experience at a Vipassana meditaton retreat, helpful but not necessary.
Area: ConnachtI'm 60 years of age, living alone in a beautifully renovated small cottage on 5 acres. My children are all grownup and living, one in Dublin, one in New Zealand and one in Canada!! I am working now to develop a vegetable garden, pond, wildlife garden, etc. I have a few goats (with kids due soon), chickens and 2 cats - but no animals in the house (yet!). I would like to get a few pigs, ducks and geese this year. I work part-time at home teaching sewing and crafts and also teach in a number of locations in Mayo and Roscommon. I try to live a healthy busy life! :-) I would emphasise that I do not want drugs or smoking in my home - or excess alcohol!! I enjoy a social drink and good food. I have enjoyed the company of students from many countries for many years so I hope to continue this experience for some years to come.
