Area: EnglandSORRY, we have no availability left for summer 2014. I wish everyone well in finding great places to visit. We live on a smallholding in the Yorkshire Dales. We keep a small number of hens, ducks and geese aswell as rare breed pigs and shetland cattle. We are a couple of miles from the nearest town up a very rough track and we do not have mains services (gas or electricity) although we do have broadband!! We have a wind generator - with a diesel back up - and woodburning stoves. We have 2 daughters now away at university and our 17 year old son will be at home for some of the summer. We have some experience of visitors from all over the world and would love to have help around the smallholding in the spring and summer.
Area: North Rhine WestphaliaHi everyone! So, summercamp is starting. Right now 4 people here plus our family of 5. Still space left for nature loving people who can work to make the place we all use nice and function. We simply LOVE having people here, interested in our project, sharing ideas, having fun working together. We are about to build up an earthplace for children and permacultural gardening. we have many opportunities for you to bring your energy in the project, many chances to be taken. there's room to stay, we (ages: 46,35,12,02,00) will be enjoying very much to learn from each other, to create special places, to push the building project forward, here you find a large opportunity to try things. Our intent is to share and to have a good time with each other! yes! there's work to be done ;-) so, let's do it together... Below you find another picture of Melanie and Antonio, last summer sitting on our meadow. this is one of the places to be recreated in the summer work camp, we will start this spring to give it more "shape", plants, putting up a jurte and an outside kitchen for guests to stay in during the camp. right next to the meadow is a small uniculture forrest (with small stream - delicious water from a source 1km up the hills you see) which urgently needs restructuring - best for our campfires.
