Area: L'viv, Halitskiy District, L'viv'ska OblastABOUT ME: I am an apprentice of... everything. I have a very bizarre resume which I'm particularly proud of, and a checkered past that reflects my profound interest in a wide variety of disciplines, activities, places and cultures. This makes writing short auto-biographies very difficult, especially since I generally dislike talking about myself. However, for the purpose of my future workaway guests, I'll do my best to oblige with a description. I grew up in a military family and served for many years with the Army, raised with old school values of honor, integrity, loyalty, and duty. Although I've never been very keen on hierarchy and structure, I learned a lot from my upbringing about staying true to your self and values above all else. To me, life is about three things - 1) Becoming stronger. 2) Becoming smarter. 3) Sharing your strength and wisdom with others. To that end - I like to stay active, try new things, learn as much as possible and then build relationships with good people that have a similar mentality as I do. I think it's important to surround yourself with positive thinkers and a supportive community if you want to achieve your goals, and I think programs like workaway do a good job of building such communities. MY ORGANIZATION: I'm a language teacher (English/Russian), living in L'viv, Ukraine, and I both work in and run my own language learning program. Languages are my passion, and I take great pleasure in helping people improve their communication skills. I've been in the business for two years, and have learned and developed quite a bit. My greatest goal is to bring quality language instruction to the local community and those interested in investing in L'viv and Ukraine as a whole. I take my work very seriously and truly believe that language development and social learning is the key to integrating into a culture. For more information regarding our organization, please message me and I'll send you the necessary details.
Area: ArizonaWe are a working circus family! My husband and I have four beautiful children, two friendly dogs, and a big gorgeous home that sits on a third of an acre at the bottom of a mountain. We are in a professional band that performs frequently and our home is very musical and lively. It's difficult to put our entire vision into a small box, but here is the basis of what you would need to know: Our mission is creating community through music, art, dance, food as medicine and conscious parenting. Our vision is to provide a space for travelers and their families to come "plug in" to the resources this city has to offer, and to learn and grow with us until they are ready for their next adventure. We are looking for workers who are spiritually focused, psychic, intuitive, healers, or all of the above. While here you will have the opportunity to assist us with cultivating the land and vision. Here are some ideas of what we will need assistance with: Outdoor work and projects: Building a chicken coop Starting a garden *Done!

A happy worker is a good worker. We'll keep your hands busy so your mind can be free.
Area: CenterWe are a Dutch family of 5 persons. (the children are 15, 8 and 6 years old) Since december 2011 we're living in France. We have a dairy farm with about 100 milking cows and even so much youngsters. The farm is growing, so half october we started in our new cow stable. Now we have to change the old stable in a youngster stable. And a lot of fenches needs to be repaired or even changed before we can let the cow out this spring. That gives much work beside the usual work, so we can use helpfull hands. Because of the children we have a little preferance for french speaking people. But everyone can contact us! Our livestyle and farm is regular, not ecologic. But it doesn't mean that we are not open to good suggestions!
