Hey there, an israeli guy living in a small village in Bulgaria. The place is currently in the process of renovation so it might not be the most luxurious (but I'm working on it). Eco-Restoration of an old house is the biggest project as of now (may 2019).
The project is Eco-friendly, with use of recycled materials and done mostly by hand.
Volunteers welcome for tasks such as: painting, gardening, construction, cleaning&cooking and much MUCH more, but mostly to enjoy and share knoledge&experience.
I would like to be fair- so I can offer a once-a-week pocket money of 40 BGN, which can be used to buy groceries (or whatever comes to mind). I was travelling around the world for a couple of years and volunteered in many places so I know the feeling of not being well-fed by cheap hosts.
As products are very cheap here- the money is more than enough to buy products for 3 meals a day for 7 days (and still have some chang).
The VIBE: self sufficiant, vegetarian, young (at heart is also ok), simple, based on Rainbow values. volonteers should be independent, and know his/her way with preforming physical tasks.
