I live in a charming small town.
It is a good place to understand Korea deeply and travel.
Epidemics demand each other's safety. It is respect for each other.
A living space separate from the family living here is provided.
Sometimes you can even prepare your own food.
The main work is done outdoors and may change depending on the weather.
I run a tree farm.
This is like managing a large garden.

It's what you do in the garden. There are also tall trees, so use a ladder to trim the tree. If you have other talents and it's possible in my space, you could try it. Except in special cases, I usually tend to make decisions within a month.
A separate Korean-style ondol room and other living spaces are provided.
What else ...
This is a rural area located in the southwestern part of the Korean Peninsula. It is close to the mountains and the sea, so the communion with nature is good. With convenient transportation, you can reach major cities such as Seoul within 3 hours. UNESCO has registered the nature, relics and culture of this area on the World Heritage List four times. In particular, in 2013, the entire area was designated as a biosphere reserve. Therefore, it has become an important area to protect cleanly, including Ramsar wetlands and sea tidal flats.
If you are a quiet person, you can take a walk around a 600-year-old castle, experience Korean bathing culture in a hot spring, or also experience the temple culture by staying overnight at a temple that is more than a thousand years old. Conversely, if you are active, you can try things like hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, or fair gliding. Also, some people take 2-3 days to visit Korea's famous mountains like Mt. Jirisan.

He was the sweetest person ever, he cooked me vegetarian food, he showed me amazing places and he answered every question I had (we spend many hours just talking - which I LOVED and miss right now).
Work itself wasn't even hard. Youngchul farm was beautiful and peaceful. I end up really enjoying
I'm really thankful that he's willing to have me though I'm without experience.
I'd love to volunteer again with him so I can repay his love and kindness to me more the next time around.

Youngchul is a laid-back and caring person, and I think it is super cool that he is so curious and interested about the world. The first day when he picked me up, we stopped by the library so
I spent one week at this place. This has become a precious experience for me. YOUNGchul is very attentive and incredibly interesting person. I was worried that we could not get along, but it was all in vain. Youngchul, always young, looked after me like a father. And by the way, he cooks wonderful! Every day we talked with him
