  • Help


    The tasks will be the following: DIY skills, picking flowers, herbs, weeding, mowing the lawn, moving compost, preparing flowers for the dehydrator and packing them away. We would like volunteers to be flexible and independent. Waterproof clothing, sun protective clothing and good boots for outside work. There is physical work involved not just picking flowers. The minimum stay is 1 month because it take too much time to explain and reorganize our schedules. Maximum stay is 3 months. Please insure you have a visa (if needed to work in Luxembourg) and you have your own health insurance.
