For the last few months, my parents have welcomed foreign guests into their home via an organisation called HelpX. In return for free accommodation, the guests agree to work on a project for their host. Many of the projects involve working on farms or growing food, but the project can be anything.
That got me thinking: what if we could host somebody who wanted to stay in Kings Heath and volunteer for our group? Having somebody working 20+ hours a week on Transition projects could be a massive boost to so many of our ongoing projects – or could even be the kickstart needed to launch one of the projects from our wishlist into existence!
Would you be able to help make this a reality? We’ll need:
- hosts – do you have a bedroom spare for a week or two?
- mentors – would you be able to volunteer together with a HelpXer as your apprentice?
- translators/proofreaders – are you able to translate, proofread or help foreign guests perfect their English?
- friends – could you have a guest over for dinner, or take them out for a drink?
I think this could be such a massive boost for our group, let’s make it happen! 🙂 Let me know if you can help, or if you have any questions.
