When I was traveling through Australia and Africa I did volunteering (something similar as workaway) myself and I loved it. So now I have my own little paradise I like to share it with other people.
I live in the countryside just outside the city, where I grow my own vegetables and fruit using the permaculture principles. I have a dog and chickens. And would like to have more animals in the future and try to be self-sufficient as much as possible. I host people for only one week, because I think you have to see more of the world than only my place. We can always decide if you are going to stay longer. I'm a creative person and there is enough space to use your own creativity if you have any ideas.
After helping you can relax in the garden or take a bike and explore the surroundings and enjoy the quietness and beauty of nature.
If you confirm your stay two days in advance and let me know what time you arrive, I'll make sure I'm at home. If plans changes pleace let me know as well, because I don't run a company and I have to plan my time as well.
