hi dear all.
here is a exchanging scheme for those who is interested to work in return with food and accommodation. this exchange during chinese new year public holiday, place: my hometown, a midle size town of hezhou city, guangxi. a border place 250-300kms northwest of guangzhou.
scheme time: 7-13/15th feb.2013
work/job: you might have to work as a sales in a houseware shop or as a helper to help me to build a roof floor garden (which means you have to work on mud and help me to transport the earth to top floor, there might have other people together too, give help and ideas for the garden, a veg./ plant / flower / playing(for kids 1-3years old) garden, total space about 180sqm, it's almost empty, length 30m, width 6m about, half in front covered and shadowed with a over 3meter aluminum plate high frame) 3-5hrs work per day, continuously 4-5days would be done.
benefit: you will get free food, accommodation (you will have your own separate bedroom in the house), live with local family.
extra benefit you will get: 1) an experience living in a chinese big family living experience; 2) enjoy a chinese new year with local people; 3) you can sell some festival seasoning gifts in the town center in a fast way to earn some extra money for yourself, what you earn are yours. this simply if you are not shy to talk to local people and strange, you could do it a day and can sell all out what you have in one day; 4) in the free time you can go to somewhere with local people, to some brilliant mountain view places. the views there are similar as guilin, with its mountain, rocks and stream view, local village, maybe some minority tribe too if you are lucky enough to visit. 5) maybe local dragon show also from 13-15th feb.2013. 6) you can improve your chinese if you are learning chinese, or if you are learning hakkah, cantonese, sichuaninese(guiliu hua) languages.
age/gender/requirement: no age or gender limit but better you are energic and active person, gentle manner, like to live in village (sorry no pub there) and can get along with types of people from the little kid to the eld. no bias.
the aim of this trip is to finish a garden on a house building top floor, so would be great you have experience on doing gardening, dare to think and like to work, we will arrange a meeting to discuss a little bit and do some preparation works(i.e. to buy some plant/flowers). don't have to be very professional, a normal house roof garden only. temperature there is similar like guangzhou but 2-5degrees colder. msg me from here if you are interested.
volunteer wanted: 1-2 person
let's see how here goes. if it works well, i think later could plan more of such similar volunteer works. ideas from wwoofs in new zealand.
