Next Destination(s): In the Midlands of England, renovating a van over winter. Love to hear from you, we have a lot of skills to share and are keen to learn more!

*****UPDATE; we have bought a van and are currently converting it into a camper. We have the heating/solar/bed in now and are working on the kitchen!

Anyone that wouldn't mind us parking up and working on it while we help at your place, we would love to hear from you!

We have been building the van using a lot of reclaimed materials, so we would need somewhere to park the van, somewhere to put our possessions during the build, access to a power outlet (we bring our own tools), and a bit of a workspace to use while we restore some of the furniture...

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 early 2019. Thanks for reading!*****

Jim and I are an Australian couple that are travelling around Europe. 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!
