  • Description


    We look for a volunteer(s) to help the start of the season now for spring. we are still doing little finishing works in the house, , making lampshades, sewing exercise mats for bodywork, out of wool and cotton.
    So if you think you have a sense for beauty, are able to work precisely, are creative and you'd like to work together, welcome!

    we grow organic vegetables and herbs in a harvest-garden (community shared agriculture), weeding, planting, harvesting,...
    We have built an extension to our house in strawbales and cob.
    we live at the end of a little road in the woods, nearby a little city, 50 km from Brussels and 25 km from Leuven
    Inside the house, we have a lot of wood and round forms with cob-walls.

    we have a wooden caravan near the house with a little kitchen and a double bed.
    you can share the real kitchen, cooking, eating, bathroom, in the main house.
    I'm used to cook a lot of different tastes and diets, with all the good and sometimes special vegetables from the garden. we do eat meat and co , but I can cook vegetarian or vegan if wished.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    there is a trainstation in 30' walk, so you can easily reach other places to visit,
    when weather is warm, there is a lake on 10 km, where we love swimming.

    We are Peter (50 y) and Christel (49y), we live here with our sons David and Simon (16 and 14y old) We like hardworking simple and peacefull living, we love to play games, and know a lot about nature. Philosophers also,...we are a diverse couple, Peter is strong, and can make long hours,
    I have the beginning of a muscle disease, so i have to take care about my energy, I have to rest sometimes during the day, and I can use help in the kitchen when we are many,
    I love to serve nice meals but there are days I need help in the kitchen.
    We both are creative minds.

    If you smoke we ask you to smoke oustside the house or caravan,

    with the pleasure of meeting other people!
