    *** Help needed starting from 15th February 2021!!! ***
    (We are having a break - letting proffesionals to do some work- until mid Feb 2021. After that more volunteers are welcome!)
    My current renovation project takes place in North Latvia, in a town called Valmiera. It's a house built by my grand-grand parents and we are planning to turn it into a co-working place for freelancers (upper floor) and a yoga-wellness center (ground floor). First floor planned to open in MARCH 2021 and yoga studio should start its work on autumn 2021.

    Help is much welcomed throughout the winter of 2020/2021 - message me and come to help anytime. We usually have 2-10 volunteers at the same time and there is a lot of fun, not only work :) The team consists of several longer term workawayers (staying 2-3 months) and shorter term help coming for 1 - 4 weeks.

    We need help 5 days a week, 5 hours a day (lunch breaks apart, small household duties apart), usually from 10:00 - 16:00 but the hours might be different according to the plans/tasks/workaway preferences. The tasks might be challenging as well as the living conditions - there is mostly cold water, limited access to shower (but planning to organize a proper shower soon), firewood heating, most of the rooms are shared. The rough living conditions offer to experience another life style and make new meaningful friendships, gain a decent renovation/handy work experience and have a remarkable experience for your life!

    For occasional weekends, I can offer you to stay in Riga and explore the capital but that greatly depends on the availability of any free room in my apartment there. Most often the weekends are free and can be spent just chilling out, reading a book, watching a movie (big screen available), visiting nearby cities, going for a walk in forest etc.

    Please feel free to message if you have any questions. We can provide a safe environment for a 10 day self isolation (required in Latvia currently).

    LIST OF WORKS:

    demolishing walls, cutting firewood, washing the dishes, taking off old layers of paint, plaster work, painting, woodwork, sanding, flexing, cutting firewood, work with electricity, cleaning, removing building garbage, separating waste, cleaning the garden, cooking etc.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    First of all, I will try to introduce you to the Latvian culture, history, nature taking into account the current covid conditions (we are organizing some excursions and tours as well). Secondly, the team consists of people from different cultures and backgrounds so its a great opporunity to learn about other cultures without travelling to them (espcially in this time).

  • Arbeit

    Arbeit

    I expect volunteers to be able to help out physically, to be able to do the renovation (cleaning, painting, building, carpentry, handle powertools (we can teach))

    Help includes A-Z renovation for a house, currently working on cleaning the walls from old pain, recently renovated doors, vintage heaters, there is a lot of cleaning constantly.

    Help in garden - picking apples, cleaning out old leaves, cutting the grass.

    Cooking - to be able to cook for up to 10 people on a small, improvised kitchen (no running water). Dishwashing is always an important task!
