  • Description

    Description

    Hi, I love hosting volunteers from various countries and build a small community at my place. This small farm provide a warm and fun place for volunteers to interact with Korean young children and adults who are interested to practise their English with English speaking people. We plant strawberries, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, watermelon and corn. Volunteers can also learn about simple farming methods while making friends with other volunteers around the world. I am a traveler myself and always looking forward to meet new friends from all around the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In return we will provide the following to you:-

    *We will provide 1 (sometimes 2) culture trips once a month where we will bring all the volunteers for Busan city tour or province nearby or have some sports activity together. We will bear the costs of the activities we organised for volunteers.
    * Opportunity to converse with Korean family and explore Korean foods and learn about Korean culture

    SPECIAL NOTE : WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER ANY PAYMENT TO VOLUNTEER WHO IS ON TOURIST VISA. FOR THOSE WITH PROPER WORKING VISA, WE WILL OFFER A SMALL AMOUNT OF ALLOWANCE (A VERY VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF ALLOWANCE) ON TOP OF THE ABOVEMENTIONED BENEFITS.

    P.S. we are still communicating with workaway to remove the icon "host offer payment" and we are sorry for the confusion caused.
