Hello and Shalom !
we currently renovate an old 19th century German Colony hostel building in Haifa, doing plaster, flooring, painting, grandma wall papers, restoring old windows, upcycling old things, playing with wood, building planter, organizing the garden, moving stuff about, installing fixtures, designing, deep cleaning. Using our minds and tools. It's diverse, interesting and fun if thats how we do it, bring your vibe. We go slow because we only do it with local friends or people with good vibes, so come help us materialize it.
If you got relevant skills that is great, even if you dong maybe you can also help out in other aspects of our life, learn something, help with cleaning the hostel etc.
We means a group of international volunteers, local friends, Danielle my partner and Chewba the dogg.

You will get to stay in the hostel in downtown Haifa, the central and beautiful German Colony area (or in our modest house in Pardes Hanna). Meet the regular staff, other travelers or our friends that help us, Welcome to join me if i go somewhere (usually Jaffa/Tel-aviv or Tiberias where i have stuff to do - chance to explore) , get to work with tools and materials, learn how to do, build, create, treat, upcycle, refurbishing, etc. And we can arrange for you free stay in hostels around israel on your days off. And you are welcome to ask us whatever you want to know. wont be boring. we bring new life to where it has been neglected.
We look for people with good hands and open mind. To use tools and create, be creative and improvise, upcycle, work the earth, wood, walls, stone and whatever we find.
