Area: ConnachtSORRY ALL, WE ARE FULL UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2014. WE ONLY HAVE SPACE FOR INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS, NO COUPLES/FRIENDS. We've just bought a house/shop in the west of Ireland and are slowly renovating the building so we can live there. I (Martin) am a psychotherapist on a career break and I (Olga) am a massage therapist/reflexologist and also work part-time in the airport as a customer service officer. Long-term, we hope to create an eco-hostel/holistic therapy centre/art gallery/veggie café but it will probably not open until early 2015. In the meantime, we hope to make the house as sustainable as possible with the budget we have. We hope to create a rainwater harvester, solar water heater, dry toilet and perhaps a rocket stove with back-boiler. Also, we plan to develop an edible garden using permaculture principles. We're hoping to design and build worm composters and possibly beehives. In an ideal world we'll have built a sauna before winter too but it's not priority. We are looking for positive, creative and highly motivated people to add a good energy to the place and help our dream become a reality. We are well travelled and really hope to welcome people from all cultures.
Area: Lake Siljan, DalarnaA Permaculture Demonstration & Learning Center. We are using the principles of Permaculture to enhance our site by a lake as well as at our home in Leksand. By using Permaculture Principles, we care for the land and environment (local birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife), we care for ourselves by eating organically and locally grown food and we give away or sell the excess - no waste!
