Both of my kids have moved out on their own/college. I am working full-time as well as spending 30 hours a week working on a degree online. I have two extra bedrooms and could use some help.

My primary need is yard work. I could also use some help with some patch and paint touchups in the house, simple ongoing kitchen tidying, simple cleaning.

If someone is handy/DIY, I could use help finishing a currently-unfinished closed-in garage.

You would be able to pick and choose the tasks that matched your interests and skills. Careful work and high attention to detail is more important to me than fast work.

At this time I'm not able to host someone who needs direction and supervision on a daily basis. The help I need is essentially a roomate who with basic introductions, is able to just jump in and help out, taking initiative on their own.

I am on a keto, organic, from-scratch diet that isn't everyone's cup of tea. I will provide plenty of food and sn... more inside

300 year old mill on a pond with a waterfall in need of tender loving care.

I’m originally from NY, but I have lived in San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, for the past thirty years, as a mother, a contractor and a store owner.
I love the work exchange experience, and I have been both worker and hostess for the last here on Helpx.. I love the exchange of culture and community that the work exchange life gives us, both as helpers and hosts, I've been working on an urban sustainable project for the last several years in San Miguel de Allende and I've had many wonderful helpers over the years.
I just inherited my parents house and art studio, it's on it's own pond with a waterfall, but it's in major need of love and attention, so I'm planning on starting the first phase this Aug, Sept and Oct 2019 and then returning to work on the exterior in the spring April, May and June 2020. My passion is sustainable design and living.

This is an organic farm, community and education center that is off the grid and uses no fossil fuels. We grow most of our own food, and also grow organic vegetable seeds which we sell to a local seed company, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

Our community and farm are powered by the sun and farm-grown biofuels. We have developed a unique DC micro-grid that we actively promote to other groups and communities as an economical alternative to grid power and fossil fuel. We are continuing to improve our systems for fossil-fuel-free farm traction and cooking.

We host interns and work exchangers year-round. Work is usually agricultural from May to October, and technological projects the rest of the year. Kids are welcome. Interns and volunteers donate 30 hours of work per week in exchange for room, board and educational opportunities.

We are part of a network of egalitarian and income-sharing communities in Louisa County that includes Twin Oaks and Acorn Communities.

We have an organic farm. We have a wide variety of animals. At the moment we have goats, cattle, a donkey, and chickens. We have 3 gardens, fruit trees, herb plots, and are expanding. We have approximately 70 acres/29 hectares that we are working on getting cleared, fenced, and workable. We milk the goats and play with the babies that aren't sold. We are close to North Bend State Park and the Rail Trail. Excellent for hiking, biking, camping, etc. The Hughes River is a mile away. It is not deep in some parts but it flows into a lake for fishing. During the spring, we can show how to pick and choose the right heirloom seeds, how to raise all sorts of babies, and start your own seedlings. During the summer, we pick our own legal herbs and I make my own herbals that I can show how to make those as well. During the fall, I can show people how to can, dry and store the food we raised on the farm including our own seeds. During early winter we are butchering and figuring out what we want... more inside

We are a people-loving family of 6 living in a old house that has been in the family/business for over 100 years. The house is in the middle of a Fruit Farm, a large orchard managed by Clair. We have a small farm with chickens and pigs and cats and one dog.

Anna cares for and teaches our four children (5,7,11, and 14) She enjoys providing the children with meaningful and stimulating learning experiences, always stopping her work to read them one more book. She has also taken our family on a real-food, slow-food journey -- making nearly all of our meals from "scratch" from mostly locally sourced ingredients. Along the way, she has learned how to make kombucha, kefir, sourdough bread, lacto-fermented veggies, homemade medicines, and a variety of homemade and/or traditional foods. She thrives on neighborhood interactions and getting to know people of all kinds.

When Clair is not working at the fruit farm, he spends his spare time creating things, homesteading, gardening,... more inside

Our Meditation Center in New York is an internationally renowned center for meditation, where everyone is welcome to enjoy a peaceful environment or join in the many programs offered throughout the year. We have a World Peace Temple situated on 82 acres of grounds, including nature trails.

Our next opening begins on March 24th! In particular, we are looking for volunteers interested in helping with outdoor landscaping, and in particular building rock walls to beautify the grounds. All the skills needed will be taught; all that is required is a love for physically oriented and meaningful work!

In exchange for volunteering, working visitors receive dormitory accommodation and three vegetarian buffets a day. The working visit also includes general program classes, courses, and group meditations that h... more inside
