  • Description


    I´m Ben :) living in the beautiful south of Austria, close to the border to Slovenia. Work-away helped me a lot to get experiences and different views of what´s possible. I used and still use it when i´m traveling.
    Here, we got a big property with a lot of nature (awesome nature) and decided to start with some projects.
    that´s why I'm setting up a waw host.

    (My dream is to create a place where people and nature come together and get to know each other. Something like a recreation centre. Might also consider starting a community on that spot to live self sustainable and eco aware.)

    Right now we are ready to start building a small summer house close to the lake.
    Experienced workers needed.

    Also there are a lot of possibilities to experience, The lake , Mountains, a quiet nice nature reservoir....
    hit me up :)

    I´m a pretty relaxed guy, living in a camper with my two dogs during the summer, when the weather is nice and warm. During the winter i leave to go south towards the sun.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A place to stay, food (Vegan), shower, internet, maybe a car (at least a bike).
    But the important thing is that you will get a place open for all your creativity, experience yourself and the great south of austria

    you will learn and get some experience in gardening, animal care, beecare, working with kids, students, yoga, meditation and so on ...

    i can also offer taking you to different outdoor activities, like wakeboarding, snowboarding, climbing, hiking, or surfing
    if you are up for that

    otherwise you´ll get some time to rest or do your own stuff :)
