Can you lend your spare room to Transition?


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.
