Next Destination(s): In the England for 2018 winter/spring for van renovations/festival work. Love to
hear from any intentional/artist's communities, we have a lot of skills to share and
are keen to learn more, always.
*****UPDATE; we have bought a van and are currently converting it into a camper. Anyone that wouldn't mind us parking up and working on it while we help at your place would be great! We plan to build it using mainly reclaimed materials, so we need somewhere to park the van, somewhere to put our possessions during the build, access to a power outlet and maybe some tools, a room to sleep in or a place for us to pitch our tent, and a bit of space to store the wood and reclaimed fixtures as we find them (and before we put them in). It's a lot to ask, so don't feel bad if you have to pass us over! We hope to be up and running independently by the end of summer, before would even be better...Will update as we can. Thanks for reading x *****
Jim and I are an Australian couple that are travelling around Europe and interested in HelpX because it seems to be a great way to travel and see more of the world.
Our goal is to become more self-sufficient by learning from the permaculture projects and farms we visit. We see volunteering as offering the chance to learn new skills along the way, while seeing beautiful places and meeting wonderful people.
Ideally, we are looking to work approximately 4-6 hours a day, 4-5 days a week in exchange for meals, somewhere to park up, laundry/shower facilities, good vibes and great learning experiences. If this sounds like something you could offer us, please email!
We are 100% gay-friendly, trans-friendly, kid-and-dog friendly, have no special dietary needs or allergies and would love to hear from you!
