Do you except volunteers?

what about wwoofers, workaway etc.

In a typical volunteer situation your work will be managed and supervised to ensure an efficient outcome in relation to the attention given. For that usually working hours are predefined and rigid, works simple and repetitive, and team structures are hierarchic. In case the venue has also other guests, volunteers are usually given an inferior status with less privileges and possibly even life in an independent more simple environment than paying guests or core members. All this is exactly NOT what we aim to establish in our laboratory. In change we aim for maximum individual flexibility and freedom and self-responsibility of everybody involved. Also we aim to live in a connected, trustful and horizontal community with all people present. For that reason we do not offer full work exchange to new participants, nor do we use the word volunteer for anybody, as this would define a role distinction to other participants. We do offer partial work exchange opportunities to every participant. Full work exchange is possible if you collaborate at least during 3 moon cycles. Read more.
