Dear volonteers,
We are Daniela (German, ex-Designer, experienced volunteer), Jhon (Indonesian,Social animal, handicraft expert), Tomy (Indonesian,landscape&garden genius). Together we rent almost one ha of fertile,wild land at the bottom of famous Ijen Mountain. We try to build and manage it as much as possible in an ecologically and socially sustainable manner. Aimed not only as a shelter for guests (food&accomodation business) we also use it as a space where creative people get together (workshops, events, music, handicraft, outdoor games, English lessons for the community) and exchange knowledge in an informal and playful way. We warmly welcome likewise minded travellers who are enthusiast to contribute/help in the following fields:
Organic Gardening, creating small trekking paths around the area, Decorating & Furnishing (upcycled&natural materials), playground and activities/games for all ages,Community projects (clean up village and teaching English twice a week),outdoor art, mapping the area and making a map. Free accommodation and food and a welcoming local community rich in ancient traditions they are happy to share with you.Banyuwangi is nearby Bali, easily reachable also by train from Surabaya and Yogjakarta. Small shops (snacks,drinks etc.), basic medical facility and a local market are within walking distance.Hope to see u soon! Jhon, Tomy, Daniela
