    ** MAIN WORKS ***
    We have just started our permaculture field and there is plenty of work to be done before starting regular activities. Depending on the weather, progress, and your interest, you may experience some or all of the following tasks:
    1. Carpentary Work of tiny house which will be used for volunteer accommodation or an activity place.
    2. Maintaining our permaculture gardens - such as hugelkultur and keyhole garden - and natural farming field.
    3. Building a composting toilet, insect hotel, and garden hut.

    Hello👋 we are a group of four people - we are in our 30's and all female - interested in permaculture, ecology, veganism, and rural lifestyles. We are starting an eco-community in a small village in Gangwon Province and we are looking for female workawayers who would enjoy staying with us. We have traveled as workawayers ourselves and we loved to share our experiences with people who share similar interests when we were workawaying. Now we want to share our journey with workawayers as hosts in our little forest.

    At the beginning of 2023, we moved to this small village and started creating a permaculture field in an area that was previously used for traditional agriculture. One field is located in our village and is around 1000 square meters. The other field is in another village, a 15-minute drive away, and is 2000 square meters. We are designing the smaller field first and then the larger one. We have already dug a small orca-shaped pond using shovels, and today we built a keyhole garden that is also shaped like a big fish and 2 hugulkultur beds for growing strawberries.

    Our goal is to create an ecological community where people can grow their own food in food forests & permaculture gardens and fulfill their own needs with alternative and also natural technology. We are also learning how to create a good permaculture garden, how to grow crops & vegetables naturally, how to live well, and how to build a community village. You can learn with us, or we might have many things to learn from you.
    Please fill free to message to us :)

    * FOOD :
    We will prepare and share lunch and dinner together, and we will clean the dishes after meals.
    Our food is mostly vegan; meat is not allowed in the house.
    Workawayers also would be part of preparing food and cleaning the dishes.

    ** If you are allergic to cats, please take into consideration that we have three cats that roam around our property and often accompany us to the field **
