Area: BohuslänWe are an ecological course and retreat centre on a beautiful island off the west coast of Sweden. We recently completed our building program (7 yurts including a large group space) and are now concentrating on developing courses in personal sustainability. We also have ongoing practical work managing our garden and our ecological water treatment and power systems. At this point we are interested in volunteers who would like to stay for at least one month.
Area: NorthlandI am an artist in clay, textiles and graphics. I have owned an art gallery in Riverton for more than nine years, concentrating on New Zealand made works. I garden organically, growing mostly vegetable and fruit. I have travelled a little in Italy, Korea, Spain, Canada and Australia and am interested in other cultures. In my 50's I went to University for the first time and studied geology, gaining a B.Sc in 1997. Although I am in my 70's, I am fit and active and most of my friends and associates are much younger. I am interested in interacting with many cultures. I have recently moved to Kaiwaka, Northland to a 3 acre block which needs a lot of hard work to develop further. Currently accommodation is limited to a small Toyota twin camper van parked in a large garagewith bathroom facilities in the house.
Area: LimassolWe are June and Michael, we moved to Cypus from England in June 2002 and we help the poor cats and dogs that are suffering to survive and avoid cruelty.

Area: TuscanyWe are Elena, Federico, Cloe (4 years), Tideg (2 years), and Anais (1 year). Our farm is situated in Tuscany, 20 minutes from the sea, and 20 minutes from Lucca. We started this project in 2003, with the ambition of creating an open and welcoming house, where we can teach and learn in a warm, convivial environment. Our house is set around 4 hectares of land with olive trees, vineyards and a vegetable garden. Herbs and flowers spill over the paths. Three donkeys, a horse and a dog complete our family. We have a guesthouse that caters for Agritourism, which includes a restaurant where we cook meals for the guests using local and homegrown organic produce.
