free farmstays worldwide

this is something that will appear mostly to anyone going backpacking around the world on a budget. its a scheme that allows you to help out for about 4 hours a day and in return get free accommodation and meals. hosts are usually farms but there are quite a variety of non farm places too. its a great way to meet locals and experience new things whilst seeing the world. the majority of hosts are located in Australia and New Zealand but there are quite a lot to be found in Europe and North America and beyond. its called Help Exchange and its totally free to join and use. find out more at:

    An excellent post, unlikely to use it myself in the near future but given different circumstances would have loved a pop at this.
    Four guns yet only one trigger prepare for a volley.

    Together we can make a difference.

    I've never heard of this before so thanks for posting. I think it will fit even better over on the Travel board, rather than Freebies, so I'm going to move the thread over there. :)
