The project is moving along nicely which means we have space to host quite a few workawayers! In the coming weeks and months the primary task will be helping to convert a van into a habitable truck from scratch. Apart from this, if you enjoy gardening, painting, putting together ikea furniture, chopping wood, general upkeep and being part of a community then this is the place for you :) *️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️ I am Victor, I'm French, I'm 27 years old and I have travelled a lot in recent years. At our house we speak English, French and German. Following a few years of travel I have now returned to my home village, living in an old family house that has been converted for the occasion into a shared flat. The house and its garden need a lot of work, my aim is to create a beautiful shared house for 7 people. The project is very large, there are a lot of major works (creation of a vegetable garden, maintenance of trees, renovation of several rooms, conversion of an old barn, insulation of the house, creation/renovation of furniture, painting, and much more). My family also lives in the same village, so I often go to help them, especially with gardening at my grandparents' house. I have a lot of passions and cooking is one of them that you will get the chance to enjoy regularly. There is an old bread/pizza oven in the cellar also! I was essentially a vegetarian before discovering Freeganism - by adopting this new philosophy I now allow myself more freedom and there will always be meat and vegetarian products available for everyone :) Despite the rural aspect of life in Hegenheim, the city centre of Basel in Switzerland is less than fifteen minutes by bike (I have several of them that I make available to my guests), as well as the international airport and railway network. The region is magnificent, located at the three borders between France, Germany and Switzerland. The Vosges, Black Forest and Jura mountains meet here. I'll be happy to show you around! The accommodation will be in a private room for the guests. There is often a large team of volunteers, especially in summer, and it is possible for me to accommodate many people! There are always people at home, friends passing by, couchsurfers, former Workaway volunteers returning, etc. Since February 2019, Peach, a lovely Turkish kangal dog has joined the team also :) If you're not in a good headspace or need a lot of time on your own, this might not be the place for you :) See you soon! ......
