    We are now looking for volunteers for August (8-20th)
    for these profiles (or what you are eager to learn/combine):

    - DIY'ers + CONSTRUCTORS (or eager to learn): building a (new) pizza oven + rebuilding a sauna

    - FARMERS (or eager to learn): food forestry maintenance

    - BEEKEEPING ASSISTANTS (or eager to learn): harvesting

    - GENERAL HELP& MAINTENANCE in HOUSE&FARM (this work is supported by all members on a daily basis, cooking & dishes, etc. are part of the day in a slow life and are not considered as work or for females only ;)

    - COOKS: rebuilding a clay woodoven for pizza & bread, making sourdough bread & pizza, cooking healthy foods (we aim to cook mostly plantbased, but also with meat&fish now and then)

    Hi! We are a green minded couple and a small growing community, working mainly on ethical greening, sustainable designs involving edible greens, bio-arts, slow events and photography. We are located in the idyllic green part of Flanders in de Vlaamse Ardennen.

    The location offers beautiful sights over hills, a freshly (6y) planted food forest with orchard and some small wilder pieces of older forest, edible gardens, flower meadows, and beautiful green surroundings and scenic areas.

    Here are some key things to expect with us: learning by doing, nature, slow living, sustainable living, outdoor and vegetal cooking, organic farming & permaculture (for own consumption), designing & construction of sustainable infrastructure, landscaping, organic gardening, edible gardens, edible food forest, healthy food, exchanging our knowledge,..

    We love to experiment with and in nature, and learning by doing. And we share our knowledge while doing this. Bit by bit we are living a more natural, slower life in doing so.

    We are looking for responsible people wanting to learn, share and collaborate and help make this place into a unique one. This involves all aspects of living together: cooking, household, working in team & with instructions, solo time, shared time, communication, ...

    So, are you into this workaway experience, where you can learn things you really need and want to know about construction for sustainable housing / landscaping / gardening / living a greener and slower life, then we would love to hear from you :-)

    Ilias is a green manager and a food forester in his free time. He is a dynamic and enthousiast worker, always willing to share his help, knowledge and many many skills. He knows all about beekeeping since a few years, and is a walking plant, farming, landscaping and nature encyclopedia. He is also a travel guide with a sustainable travel organisation.

    Maaike is a teacher, gardener & food forester, (food) forest bather & nature guide and creative designer. She is into meeting new volunteers (used to work with volunteers on art and farming projects before) and showing them around the beautiful area whenever there is an opportunity. She loves cooking plant based foods together. She enjoys travelling and trekking in nature.

  • Unterkunft


    Welcome to sleep in the beautiful food forest and enjoy the lovely bird songs!

    We are partly off grid, which means living in nature and partly using our own energy supplies, not too close to shops or any other city life or comfort services. There is some smaller cities at biking distance. And as we have the comfort of a train station nearby (2 km), non-stop WiFi, water and electricity, a supermarket within a 10 minute bike ride, many bakeries, the site isn’t a challenging off grid.

    If you have a medical or mental condition or special requests, we need to know this in advance to see if we can provide in your needs. Don't be afraid to talk about it. We are discrete and very helpful people!
