    Description

    Hello, I'm Linlin from Sichuan China, I live in Mianyang. I want to make a difference for volunteers and students to learn from real life. so I posted my ideas here and hope to find volunteers who would like to help each other.

    Our location is in Yongxing Town, in Mianyang City, Sichuan Province, China.

    1. Nature Education
    Children don't know much about our beautiful nature. They always hold a phone, or ask for playing mobilephone, they are getting farther and farther away from nature.
    I went to some countryside around Mianyang. And joined a nature education team at a farm. Here is real view, a really beautiful and peaceful place. I think this volunteer project should be a chance for cultural exchange and peace.

    2. Sustainable Farming
    We love our earth, we do sustainable farming. We have rice fields, garden and bamboo forest. If you are interested in sustainable farming or permaculture, welcome to join us.

    【Leisure time】
    You can arrange for yourself, you can do any legal leisure and entertainment, you can also travel to nearby places.

    【E-MAIL】
    Please introduce yourself first, then let me know what project you wanna help, and how you can help with this project. Finally, let me know the date of your arrival and departure.

    —————————————

    About me:
    There is no real garbage in the world, only misplaced resources.
    I am 24 years old. I like traveling, especially bicycle travel. I like reading books. I think reading a book is a little like knowing a person. I like learning foreign languages, but I don't seem to be very good at it. I like chatting with different people, listening to their ideas and experiences. I like making crafts, especially the recycling and reuse of domestic waste. I am interested in sustainable farming and minimalist living. When I was very young, I was a left-behind child and a migrant child. I think education is more important than economy. My dream is to help rural education and have a sustainable farm. And I'm trying to be a vegetarian.

    About volunteer time:
    At least one week( 5days ). Our project is very flexible. If you have any great ideas, we can respond at any time.

    About transportation:
    Bus, Car, Train, High Speed Rail, Plane, Taxi, DiDi, Tricycle...
    Mianyang is also very close to Chengdu, it is about 45 minutes by high-speed rail, and the high-speed trains can reach Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport.

    About food:
    We provide chinese food( Sichuan cuisine) every day, you can cook in the kitchen or eat Sichuan food outside if you want.

    【About accommodation】
    You will have your own room where you get a bed, a fan and a table. We provide hot water and a wash machine. Rooms are old and not as good as the apartment.

    You can get along with some lovely local people. The most important thing is to go deep into southern China. You will also have Sichuan cuisine. You can learn Mandarin from Linlin, or Sichuan dialect from local people.

    I hope that every volunteer who comes to Mianyang will become my friend. We will complete the project together. Volunteers are not free laborers. I like the combination of work and rest. We work together and have fun together.

    For learning Chinese I can provide 30 minutes of Chinese language lessons every day. The course will be divided into pinyin, spoken language and grammar.

    Enjoy the typical atmosphere, nature and local products.
