Area: EnglandWe're a small family based 5 miles out of Glastonbury. In the Village of Lower-Godney, we're on the beautifully idyllic Somerset levels... We're looking for someone like minded to come and work and play with us :) We are Angelina, Bailey and Bobby (Roberta). Coco and Mimi are our cats and soon we'll have 3 hen friends living out back! We're a Vegetarian/non-dairy, non smoking/drugs house hold so would expect anyone coming to stay in our home to respect our choices and to live as we do when you are here. I enjoy an occasional glass of wine or some mead around a fire but nothing too heavy :) We try to live as naturally as we possibly can; Eating organically and locally. Creating our own potions, balms, healthcare, skincare products plus household cleaners. Making the odd item of clothing (when I've the time!) And finding other creative ways to recycle etc We're all a bit musical - My 15 yr old son loves his guitar. Myself my djembe.. And we've a piano available for anyone willing to share a tune with us! As for my 2.5yr old daughter, she's got a song for almost everything - When she's in the mood :) We're all very nice and a bit bonkers when you get to know us. Although we've been in our home a year, we're just establishing our place in the village now as I was unwell for while. Now I'm me again, I'm looking for some friendly help to keep things moving along :) I've got lots of ideas and put great energy into anything I do.. But alas, with a toddler I'm unable to move as quickly as I would like on some levels and so I'm looking for help/assistance over a variety or areas. We're looking for those who can offer help in a few of the areas listed... Not ALL in one visit!
Area:We are a family farm and artisan producer of organic cacao. The farm is also dedicated to the conservation of flora and fauna. We begin a new ecotourism project, so that people have the opportunity to learn about the manufacture of cocoa and above all to discover and enjoy nature in the area. Somos una finca familiar productora de cacao organico y artesanal. La finca esta dedicada tambien a la conservacion de la flora y la fauna. Empezamos ahora un nuevo proyecto ecoturistico, para que la gente tenga la oportunidad de aprender sobre la fabricacion del cacao y sobre todo descubrir y disfrutar de la naturaleza de la zona.
Area: ColoradoMy wife and I live just outside of Steamboat Springs, a small resort town in the Rocky Mountains of northwest Colorado where we have endless recreational opportunities throughout the year. We are about 20 minutes from the world class Steamboat ski resort. The Yampa River runs through our town and right near our house and we have some amazing hot springs about 30 minutes away. I work as a real estate agent primarily and she works as a teacher and counselor. We have a garden and greenhouse that always needs attention and live in an older house that we are perpetually remodeling. There is always a project.. or six going on at our place. I am also working on a few websites that I would love some help with and I am always open to assistance with internet marketing. We are easy going folks that love the outdoors and having a good time. We have a small dog that likes to take walks and loves when we have guests. We enjoy spending time with friends, travelling, good food and lots more. We cook a lot at home eating fairly healthy and we are happy to cook extra for our guests. We practice tai chi, yoga and meditation. Depending on the season, we also enjoy rafting, kayaking, snowboarding, hiking, biking and gardening to name a few. We are happy to loan out our gear to make it easy for our guests to enjoy the many recreational opportunities.
Area: CenterI have a lovely 7 hectare property with a manor house (17th C on) and many other buildings located in the Loir Valley, 2 hours by car and 45 mins by train from Paris. I am restoring the entire property and will be renting, as vacation rentals, a 3 bedroom house and a studio. The property includes heated swimming pool, full tennis court, many bicycles etc. There are many walking paths starting on the property and the country roads are heaven for bicycling. The main house, where I reside, includes 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths plus powder room. I am looking for 1-2 people (ideally a couple or two good friends) to work outside in the gardens (large vegetable and herb, fruit trees and berry bushes, flower beds) with watering,weeding, picking, mowing, planting. You will have a private bedroom(s) and a private or shared bath (if 2 people) in the manor house plus meals.
Area: Coimbra and Center**I have space for 1 or 2 workawayers last 2 weeks of September and first week of October** I bought this place in 2011. To me it is a beautiful with a nice atmosphere and a lot of potential. I am now in the process of setting it up as a home and Art Studio for myself, but it is part of a bigger vision in which I want to create a permaculture self sustaining community based on Vedic knowledge and principles. It does need a lot of tender loving care though before I can make the next step, moving closer to the bigger picture.. So far I have realised the basic things that make it possible for me to live here, a functional bathroom and kitchen. Right now I am renovating one of the smaller buildings that will function as sleeping/livingroom until the rest of the house is finished. For the period of April - October 2014 I will be happy to have volunteers who can help me finish the renovation that is currently in progress as well as help with transforming the current storage space into the future art studio. I also want to build a small wooden gardenhouse and will 100% have a place for someone who can build that. The land is organic by neglect. I wish to transform it into a beautiful lush garden of Eden. Volunteers with gardening skills and especialy landscapers are also very welcome. The immediate surroundings are beautiful and great for walking, a swimming spot at the river is 30 walking minutes away. On your free days I can bring you to Nelas trainstation from which it is easy to travel to f.i. Coimbra or the seaside. If you are interested in hiking in the Serra da Estrela mountains or canooing on one of the rivers I can arrange that for you. In summer I go quite often to a riverbeach to swim and enjoy the hot sulphouros springs there. The village in which my property is located has 2 cafe's annex shops. A WIFI connection is in a next village (10 min by bike). I am out of the rat race and into arts, spirituality and easy living. I am a painter (jolinemaria) and Art of Living teacher. I practise yoga and meditation. I cook vegetarian. I do not smoke and do not drink alcohol.
