Volunteering as a tool to learn and know better oneself

Hello! I am Neus and I am volunteering in a Hungarian association that is based on promoting a sustainable and healthy lifestyle and permaculture.

I live with five other volunteers from different countries in a humble house with a very large garden where we grow vegetables to self-manage. The town where we are is called Etyek, which is small and inhabited by good people. Although it is difficult to enter into a new community, we are achieving it through activities and workshops that promote sustainable lifestyle dynamics.

It is very cool to live in the countryside, connect with nature and the earth, learn to grow your own food and live in community with people from different cultures. Personally, doing a European Volunteering Project means to get to know myself and make a great personal development.
