    Hey lovely people!!

    We are currently not taking volunteers as we are not cooking at the moment and working on a plan for the the next 2 months. That being said, If you are stuck for a place to sleep or need a helping hand over these strange times, do not hesitate to give us a message and we will do everything in our power to help you out :)

    Taco on!!
    The Taco team



    Ive just returned back from a great adventure and ready to start another, Want to get onboard!??
    After traveling through Mexico, i became "stranded" on an island called Holbox. There, i developed my love for salsa, tacos and more tacos. I always said in drunken talk, that if i went home right now,.. id start a taco cart.

    Well.. I'm home now,.. I've made a taco cart!! and its awesome!
    We've had a busy new year period and have established ourselves in the community. From here, and moving through summer we're looking to keep our local base, while going to events around our region. The options and opportunities are endless and we're always looking for new inspiration and growth!!

    We've recently moved into a beautiful new house, we currently have beds for 2 workawayers, one of which is taken by OG Izzy. There is also room for vans etc, free couches and free floor space if needed :)

    So hit me up if you need a place to sleep, break from the road or want to make Kurow your basecamp for a while and contribute your piece to the Taco dream!!
