For a few years now, the Moose Creek Cafe host foreign travelers thanks to the Help Exchange website.
HelpX is an online listing of host organic farms, non-organic farms, farmstays, homestays, ranches, lodges, B&Bs, backpackers hostels and even sailing boats who invite volunteer helpers to stay with them short-term in exchange for food and accommodation.
HelpX is provided primarily as a cultural exchange for working holiday makers who would like the opportunity during their travels abroad, to stay with local people and gain practical experience. In the typical arrangement, the helper works an average of 4 hours per day and receives free accommodation and meals for their efforts.
So don’t be surprise if your waiter is from France, China or Sweden, and enjoy the travel of those young people who come in the USA to improve their language and find out our culture.
