    Free accommodation is a part of the exchange. But given we need to continue to renovate the site, get gas for meals preparations, and other meals expenses, a daily contribution of $5 is requested of workways as hosting can be a bit costly as you would testify. And as we have noted from hosting for over 5 years. We do host multiple volunteers at once to ensure you can connect with other guests, and also be flexible in your help hours.
