Hello World of Work-Away.
My name is Autumn, I've been around the world and back, in my past lives but in this life I've spent extensive time serving the country in various ways. I am a philanthropist and a compassionate human.
I have acquired my resources through the journey of capitalism - HARD Work and the gRIND of putting down without shutting down.
I've come to offering my space a small farm of 17 acres as a way for people to simplify, recharge and retreat.
The farm has taken several directions but mostly I want to offer housing spaces for short and long term visitors that desire to live in spiritual alignment of both masculine and feminine energies and honor the spiritual essence of Mother Nature and Father Sun.
We meditate through sitting practices or movement everyday, and the primary projects are currently gardening, home renovations and outdoor building.
All volunteers are expected to offer their time of 15-20 hours a week in addition to time with shared cooking, errands and meditation.
The current offer for volunteer housing arrangements is a tent space, and three meals.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Computers/ Internet
Travelers will learn about off grid living, building, gardening, and environmentally conscious living. We will learn how to do things the most efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly way!
Travelers should expect to learn as much as they want to absorb! :)
They will also learn to challenge themselves, improvise, and think outside the box.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Host has indicated that they will pay at least the minimum hourly wage of their country for each hour worked and that accommodation will also be provided. They are asking for help with a business or business activity. Contact the host directly via the site messenger for more information and details about the wage provided. Any arrangements should be agreed in advance with your host.
All volunteers are required to have a driver's license(for at least two years) a working active cell phone, able to lift 40 pounds, and an eccentric, "can-do" attitude.
We eat very healthy and clean - We do eat meat, but vegetarian options can be available ! :) We eat very little sugar and few processed foods. Please be prepared to help with food preparation, and cleaning.
We work hard, but we play hard also! I expect volunteers to have a similar work ethic, we work rain or shine!
Please :: I have accomplished everything I have, and everything I own by myself, I have been without family since I was 13, and I have worked very hard please keep this in mind and be respectful!
We have several projects going on at any given time, depending on the weather. We do our best to work with the elements and not against them and projects can change during any time so a great deal of flexibility and an outdoorsy demeanor are crucial! :)
This host offers a language exchange
I am interested in learning Spanish, or Portuguese
Currently there are living accommodations of a bed space inside a shared camper or a tent site.
We are 1 hour from Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh, which are all college towns with a good art, nightlife and music scene. The beach is about 3 hours away and the mountains 2 hours.
We are 15 miles from Asheboro, where one of the top 10 zoos in the countries reside.
Camping and hiking is available at Uwharrie National Forest about 20 miles away.
We are 15 miles from tourist, pet friendly town of Pittbsoro, where woodworking and art classes are available, thrift and shopping, - a few local bars and breweries.
In addition to outdoor projects, I love dancing, music, creative expression, exploring and a good philosophical conversation. I make an adventure in everything I do.
Please be advised, no gum, tobacco, nor alcohol is allowed at VIBE Farm.
We can grab some drinks at a local brewery, but it will not be brought home.
Please also note no mind altering substances are used here for any purposes spiritual or otherwise. -- All spiritual journeys here are done through meditation, chanting, or the optional sleep and food deprivation.
Communication is equally important. I want my home to be yours, but we all come from different backgrounds and so communication is important for things to run smoothly. :)
