    Description

    We are a family with 2 children (a girl 14 Years old, a boy 11 years old). We grove organic vegetables in Beckerich, Luxemburg 10 km away from Arlon, Belgium. You'll live in a house only for helpers in the main road of our little village. The field is 1 km away from the house. We have a bus connection to Luxemburg city (33 km away from Beckerich). From there you can take trains in each direction. Our little country has 3 direct neighboring countries to visite, Germany, France, and Belgium. Or you can make a weekend trip to Holland.
    Your accomodation will be a bedroom in our house, you can cook and eat together after the work in the field. It'll be great if you can cook with vegetables from the field .
    The work is starting at 8 am from tuesday till saturday the weekends and the afternoons are free.
    We have internet connection in the house.
    I Jang have a job in the city were i have to go each day, so you will only be together with my wife Thessy which is the boss on the field. She is a really relaxed women of 40 years an needs your help. If you smoke you can do this outside the house because we don't smoke. We don't have any animals but we have much people arround us with animals.

    We prefer vegetarian helpers because we are a vegetable farm.

    We have a season of vegetation from February till November in Luxemburg. So we need help on the field in this time. It's like helping in a big garden.
    The minimum to stay with us is 1 month because it take to much time to me to explain and reorganize everything at each arrival
    Thanks o lot and thanks for your understanding
