Available for July 2015

Hi!
I'm Camille, I'm 18 years old, and I live near Toulouse in the south of France.

I didn't finish my studies, that's why I never really had professional experiences, although work on a farm isn't actually a job for me because I love nature, gardening and animals, in short breathe healthy air.
I'm from a farming family so I am comfortable in this environment and I possess my own "mini farm" with chickens, dogs, turtles, gardens, vegetable...

I am currently doing studies to become engineer so I decided to do a "break" with my books to live an adventure that I would remember.
I would like to immerse myself in customs that I don't yet know and discover other ways of live, other people, then improve my English (for my studies first and then to make easier travel around the world).

I chose Ireland for its simplicity, its closeness with nature, its beauty and its inhabitants' hospitality which has a very good reputation. It is a country that attracts me and that I want to discover, more than anything.

I'm really motivated and enthusiastic to live this experience, so contact me and I will answer you with pleasure.

Regards, Camille

Space available on a family run farm

Hi there, We will have space available for one helper from the 20th of December to the 10 of January
to give a hand with a few projects that I am hoping to get completed during my winter break. The
projects that we have are restoring an old dry stone wall, creating cattle paths in the mountains and
for the rainy days we can stay nice and dry inside the polytunnel. We usually try to work as a group
and love a bit of laughter.

If interested send me an email.
Regards Chris

Hardworking + hilarious American looking for a host in Feb or March 2015! :)

Hello everyone! My name is Audrey and I'm a 25 year old girl from San Francisco, USA!

I graduated from university a little over two years ago, studying Politics + Government, Spanish, and Latin American Studies. After college I began working at a tech startup company as the marketing manager, and have been there for two years. I have learned a lot but am excited to hit the road this winter and travel some more! In my free time I like going out with friends, cooking tasty recipes (I try to eat paleo as much as I can), being active (favorite activities include running, hiking, rock climbing, biking, and yoga!), and traveling!

I have traveled all throughout Latin America and Southeast Asia. I have been to Spain once but besides that, this will be my first time experiencing Europe. Before Ireland I plan on traveling to Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Prague, Paris, and Budapest.

I am very excited to experience WWOOFing for the first time. I have been searching for new experiences in other countries, and to have the opportunity to get to know a place as a local from a local’s perspective. I am excited to learn all about your Irish lifestyle and culture, and will teach you everything you’d like to know about my life in the USA! I believe that this sort of cultural exchange is a beautiful experience.

I chose Ireland because I have always wanted to go there and have heard that the countryside is absolutely breathtaking. I have some knowledge of agriculture, because my family now lives in Vermont, a very rural state in the USA.

I'm looking a farm anytime between February 10-March 31. I would prefer one with animals because I love them, especially dogs :)

If you have any questions let me know!

Best,
Audrey

Vacancy on Equestrian Farm

Hi, I have an immediate vacancy for a woofer or two with a love for horses and dogs.
A number of years working around and riding horses would be a must to exercise and care for our young horses, DIY experience would be beneficial but not essential.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hardy WWOOFer needed until Dec 16th

Sadly we've had a couple of no-shows up here in the "almost frozen north!, so are in need of someone to be company for the delightful Italian WWOOFer we have here. He will be with us until 16th December, and it would be good for him to have a companion. We can't guarantee the weather will be kind to you ...... but we will!

Cheers, Jo

Help with horses- must be experienced

We have taken on 2 large cobs and a small pony and need help to train and to ride them, to feed them, clean them, exercise them etc. Our 2 young boys want to learn to ride them so we need somebody who is knows how to do all this well. We would also like to train them to pull a cart/ pony trap in time for the St. Patrick's day parade next march. I may have turned you down before because we had a good volunteer but she is leaving this week so help needed asap. We also have a dog, donkey and cat. We are happy to help you with your English and you will live with the family- all meals etc. Non smoker preferred.
