Hello!
ltís host and I start on Helpx from 29/12/2017.
I had quit urban life, and I went to Cheongsong, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, with my wife.
(Following the Jeju island, Cheongsong is second UNESCO Global Geoparks in Korea, and is famous for its scenic beauty and the best tourist attraction in the country.)
We have been growing special crops in healthy and selling them online.
And we are running a restaurant using our crops.
We would love to learn and grow more through Helpers as well.
Now, We have many volunteers from other country at WWoof Korea.
And we want to be someone who can walk through the world through Helpx.
Also, We will treat our Helpers as a family that visit our farms and we hope that Helpers have a great opportunity to experience the Korean farms, culture of Korea, Korean restaurant and learn Korean. Feel free to come any time.
Welcome all year round, all the people.
Thank you.
