Off grid cabin in Southern Spain

Spanish off grid adventure! Opportunity for somebody with a 4x4 to try an off grid lifestyle for 6 months....for free! I'm going to be in UK until the end of the year helping my brother to build a house (May - December). I'm looking for a couple, or somebody who's happy with their own company, to look after my place, near to Malaga, while I'm not there. You could help out by keeping an eye on the place and watering a few plants, clearing a few brambles etc. There's a very sorted 6m x 4.5m wooden cabin, a spring for water and solar panels for lighting, phone charging, 12v fridge etc. It's a mile and a half down a challenging dirtrack and you'll need to have a 4 x 4 in order to get in and out of the place. This is important...you will not get in or out easily without a 4 x 4! Also it's going to get very hot for a few weeks between July and September! If you're interested contact me Ivan on ivanidea2001@yahoo.co.uk

Looking for a like minded "au pair"

Hi there, We're a little big family of 6, Kim (40, dutch), Fred (37, French) and our four kids Mayi (9), Leo(7), Woody (3.5) and Frida (13 months). We're living in the Ariège, south of France, in a gorgeous spot. We are looking for a kind of like minded "au pair", who is familiar with or interested in attachment/natural/unconditional parenting, to come and stay with us for a longer period of time to help with our 4 children. We are homeschooling/unschooling, and would like you also to help with setting up the organic vegetable garden and some help in the house! Some keywords to describe us and things we care for : free birthing, co-sleeping, nappy-free, extended breastfeeding, non-violent communication, permaculture, biodynamic gardening, fermentation, homemade, wool, knitting, woodcarving, photography, no smoking/drugs/alcohol, barefoot, simple living, community, sacred plant medicine... We are living in the Ariège, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, in a rented house settled in 47ha of organically grown land. Amazing views on the mountains ! A very rich social network with many alternative people living around us. Our main job is to take care of these young kids so help with them would be very much appreciated, especially if you have some special skills or talents that they can learn from. We are looking for a "big brother" or a "big sister", to be part of our family for some time. It can get a bit hectic, chaotic with all these kids, but also very funny ! We have a big bedroom to offer (which is also used as a play room), in our house, so it is a bit challenging to have a lot of privacy ! Luckily the kids go to bed pretty early so at least evenings are calm ! We are pretty unconventional in our lifestyle, not sending the kids to school, not working, mainly trying to lead a simple life, as freely as we can. We eat good, local organic food, try to ban plastic from the house, use only eco friendly products, limit the exposure to EMR. Well, if you feel like joining our little crazy family for some time, please get in touch ! Fred & Co

LIVING WELL EXPERIENCE WEEKS: this land is calling you home...a loving response to what is being asked of us as humans at this time on Earth...

We are excited to share with you our new developments here at the magical Living Well Centre in Cornwall, where we have established a community held by nature-based teachings. Through recent winter dreaming, we are offering a response to what is being asked of humanity at this time on Earth, and to the visitors who have come here, this year we will be sharing The Living Well Experience Weeks. This summer, we invite guests to become part of co-creating community over a five day period each month, and to share the learning journey of what it means to live more consciously, allowing you to take this learning home and live it- being a co-creator of a new conscious way of being for humans on this Planet. We will be offering medicine wheel teachings and practices, healings, fire and water ceremonies at our ancient holy well, pilgrimages to local ancient sites, wild food and native medicine foraging, dance, sacred sound, story-telling, yoga and bodywork, all designed to support our awakening to the sacredness of all life and become part of the solution and a new story for the Earth. We will enjoy this glorious gift of life together, feasting on delicious home-cooked vegetarian/vegan food, celebrating around the fire and nestling into beautiful natural buildings within three acres of bountiful gardens and woodland. We will recover the Ancient nature-based teaching of our ancestors, which provide us with a time-tested map to living in balance and offer tools to create what we yearn for in our hearts – conscious, loving relationship with ourselves, each other and the land. Outside of the Living Well Experience Weeks we offer guests a beautiful space to retreat, connect and receive a bespoke range of treatments, teachings and sessions available each week by arrangement. If you hear this call and are looking for an experience of deep connection to your self, others and the land, to learn and grow together, please visit our website www.thelivingwellcentre.co.uk or email us on enquiries@thelivingwellcentre.co.uk for further details. Many thanks Warm wishes Rachel, Linda, Jenny and Leonora.

A non-profit community hostel in London

We’re in the process of starting the first-ever community eco-hostel in London. The vision is: ‘A hostel in London where people who share values of social change, sustainability and well-being can connect and inspire each other.’ The hostel is a non-profit social enterprise: we plan to reinvest any surplus to offer people who do pro-bono volunteer work subsidised accommodation when they come to London. The vision includes: - Communal meals around a long table each night, where people can meet other people with shared values. - Workshops and discussion groups in the evening, so that people from different places can inspire each other with stories about the work they do, and build networks and alliances together. There's a nice one minute video introducing the project at www.ecosoulhostel.com If you like the idea, it would be great to hear your thoughts and reflection on it. We'd love to talk with people, and would love to hear ideas from people with experience of communities and potential collaborators. We're currently developing the business plan, and so expertise in charity/social enterprise structure and governance, and property procurement for non-profits especially welcome. Do check out the video at www.ecosoulhostel.com

Mature man/woman needed in exchange Food & lodgings, southern Bulgaria

Hi...I'm 63 year old female young at heart & have to say a bit of a spiritual hippy, I enjoy yoga and meditation. I bought my house in southern Bulgaria, 2015 this will be my first winter here, I call it my grand design as I didn't realise what a mammoth task it would be to renovate, its mostly done now but I still need bits of diy doing and funds are running low. Hence why I'm looking for a volunteer. I have myself done voluntary work all over Europe. Firstly you need to love cats and dogs as I have 2 of each. Bulgaria is very beautiful but its a very simple life in the villages, the people are very warm and friendly but its not for everyone. we have 5 stores and a few bars in the centre. I'm looking for someone who will suit this lifestyle, and who will be able to help me do odd jobs like chopping kindling or plastering a few holes, clearing digging garden, and help with cooking etc anything else would be a big bonus for me, in exchange I offer food and lodgings. I speak a little Bulgarian but its a difficult language so have limited conversations with villagers and it can get lonely at times, so the company would also be nice. The location is in Stara Zagora region & around 50 km from Greek border. I live in a mountain village 30 km from the nearest big town, I do have transport and generally go to town weekly, as long as you don't mind a rustic lifestyle, and your not a big meat eater (I mainly eat chicken) but cook well balanced meals. If like the sound of Bulgaria & looking for somewhere to spend the winter or perhaps more permanent. If you like your own space there is a caravan available which can be hooked up to electric. In exchange for around 4 hours work (mon/fri...negotiable) I offer good 3 meals a day. I am easy going and enjoy yoga and meditation so this opportunity would suit someone more mature who is wanting a relaxed lifestyle. Get in touch with any questions you might have. Thanks for reading this and have a nice day. namaste

Swap 13 acre organic fruit and nut farm in Portugal for smallholding in Devon

My place has a small waterfall falling three levels on this beautiful place. It has clear fresh water all year round, even in the baking hot summers, it never fails. it was called 'the queen of quintas' for a long time by local people, for its water, and the sweetness of its walnuts. There are dessert grapes, apple, plum and fig, medlar, quince and almond, and many many olive trees. It is in a national park called the mountains of the stars, Seia des Eatrellas I think is the spelling. The village of Sandomil, is 15 minutes walk downhill from the land. Everything is there, and a broad river runs through it. It is a beauty spot. There are two stone houses on the Quinta, which missed the recent fire, but the third eco-house we built ourselves, had its roof burnt down. The other two houses have been pointed outside and in and re-tiled using some glass ones to allow plenty of light. They are built into the side of the hill. Currently I'm waiting for the new growth of spring to burst through and show mw all that will renew after the fire. Happily I cut most of the cashcrop pine down, to allow the natural deciduous trees to re-colonise where they once lived. The land, plants and trees are very similar looking to Dartmoor, but its MUCH HOTTER there. Fabulous views. surrounded everywhere by endless miles of sweet chestnut forest. When spring comes, I've a plan to landscape the land anew, with a view to a forest garden, and sculpt the land for social living as well as practical needs. It's always been my belief, that the best way to live is off tree food. No digging and delving, just collect the fruit and nuts when ripe, and store.It's why I bought the quinta in the first place. That, and that it had year-round running water, no near neighbours, in a beauty spot, and in a protected national park. So thats the state of play. I want to end my travels in England. If you would like to rent/buy/swap/ or have any wonderful idea for me to consider..please get in touch.

34 years old female activist looking for refuge in wild nature, where it is time to more “BE” than to “DO” - to work on a spiritual practice and self-care for several months in exchange for some volunteering! :-)

:-) I'm looking for open-hearted/minded person/people/family who have “extra resources” to share them with someone who needs some time for a refuge and regeneration. (I'm seeking a separate space in shed/barn/caravan in the corner of the land where I can live ideally for several months in a self-sustaining way but also connect with people when it feels mutually good. I'm looking for a place in wild nature with plenty of trees where there are river or lake for wild swimming, hills or mountains to surrender by. It can be almost anywhere in the world. Ideally within EU or Canada. I would love to be somewhere, where people are working on their own spiritual path and social/political engagement with the world and are willing to share it. I'm looking for a place where I can ‘recharge my batteries, focus on self-healing and having space to engage with joy of being in present moment. I'm looking for a refuge from unsustainable practises, patterns and dynamics in current mainstream society or activist circles. I am offering: Some voluntary hours on the land, with the house and/or with children which we can negotiate. (I hold an enhanced DBS check for the UK); Sharing life experiences, passions, beliefs & laughter; Companionship. I have loads of experiences with volunteering. :-) A bit about me: I am originally from the Czech Republic, have lived in the UK last 7 years, who reached the point of needing a break from every day responsibilities, struggles and activism and to address properly my burn-out and anything else what holds me back from being more deeply and sustainably the change I want to see. I am an open-hearted/minded, caring and conscious person who welcomes laughter and playfulnesses into my life as much as possible. I am passionate about people and the natural world we are part of. I'm interested in consciousness lifestyle. I strongly believe that a sustainable and more harmonious world is possible if we work on it together – doing our inner and outer work! I've been in service to others, working very hard in helping professions, education and hospitality and doing loads of volunteering and activism for last 19 years. Living in capitalist and hierarchical society have been struggling for me to get by both financially and personally. I hope this refuge will enable me to re-engage positively with myself & activism & the world in a more sustainable way. It would also help me to figure out what is the best next step in life! If this sounds like something you can offer, I would love to hear from you. I am very open to chat through anything further. I'm also very much welcoming to hear about any tips/ideas on where to look if you have any! Warm wishes and love!

Place to Live

Hi all, we are early 50's vegan couple with 2 dogs who will be available to rent or work for rent on a mutually suitable Project.We are financially stable so can support ourselves but would love to learn more about off grid sustainable living that is environmentally as well as ethically noble. Where ? Let the wind be the guide ! Really flexible, not afraid of giving it a go anywhere. We would like to live amongst people & animals where all can trust & benefit. Ideally we would have a private house/yurt/lodge or cabin which we can either pay rent for or work to cover cost of. Love the idea of communal life & believe it works best when relationships have grown. We are both physically fit, neither of us are afraid of graft. Our skills are in general building work, ground maintenance, insulation, office skills, proof reading. Any challenge is worth consideration if the cause is good. We enjoy music, can knock a tune out ok when the wind blows in the right way. We have travelled extensively and lived abroad. We feel we do not belong in mainstream society, so are seeking alternatives. We will be ready from November 2017. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who may have idea's to discuss. Regards colin

Holistic community in Glastonbury / Avalon (Somerset) seeks new members

We are a small but growing community with a retreat centre in development (called Avalon Priory) rurally located about 9 miles outside Glastonbury in Chilton Polden. There are 6 residents' bedrooms, 3 guest rooms in a tower, a group room, a chapel (for weddings etc.), a great hall, sauna, a 5-bed guest cottage, space for camping/live-in's, woodland (recent) and garages to be developed further. We currently have two spaces for people to live. Hopefully people will become involved with the activities, development and running of retreats, the garden, general maintenance etc. The community is inspired by universal truth, cosmic love, the mystical (true) spiritual Christian/Buddhist/Hindu teachings as well as the truth in all other world religions, faiths, traditions, philosophies, sciences etc. (e.g. Native American, Sufi, Jewish/Kabbalist, Advaitist, Jain, Greek philosophy). The aim of the community is to teach genuine spirituality, natural/sustainable ways of living and to facilitate healing, self-realisation/development & soul evolution. Living in a harmonious, supportive & joyful community helps everyone in this endeavour. We plan to host various courses & programs which members may be able to join (e.g. yoga, tantra, tai chi, ceremony & ritual, spiritual development, fasting, meditation, prayer & study of the wisdom teachings). There is furthermore plenty of opportunity to work with the land, planting trees & gardening in alignment with the principles of organic growing, no-dig, agroforestry & permaculture. We are aiming to become as self-sufficient as possible in terms of food production, water, fuel & energy. Potential members should be vegetarian (or at least ready to make the transition) with an aim to eventually become vegan. We are also into wholefood, organic & rawfood nutrition. Additionally, drug use, alcohol & smoking are not allowed on site and are discouraged. Because of current building works and the need to keep an orderly place for retreats etc., the place is not suitable for families. Additionally, potential residents should be in good health generally to cope with the work (gardening, running the centre). For further information, please contact Paz (07989 598889) or pazitronic@hotmail.com. You can also check out the facebook page here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/286181818526803/photos/ Peace, love and blessings.

Horse Rescue Project

Our beautiful herd of 10 rescue horses need to find a new home. We are also looking for a couple who can share the project with us - after 6 years we realise it would be good to share the responsibility now. Do you have a love of horses? Do you have a large area of unused land (in Northern Spain preferably) that would lend itself to a project of this kind? Or do you have lots of money and would love to invest in buying property and being part of a very special project? (Worth asking!!!!) Please check out our FB page to find out more about what we do : Helios a home for horses and humans. I can answer any questions but best of all come and visit and experience first hand the magic of the Helios herd. Look forward to hearing from you. HORSES ARE THE DOLPHINS OF THE LAND Julia
