  • Description


    After the devastating bush fires of June last year, we are now rebuilding and we urgently need to start replanting bushes, flowers, trees and so on! We could do with some helpers starting as soon as possible!! If you feel like getting your hands dirty and help us create more green, please send me a message... We are also working at the veggie garden and get ready for tourist season.... Great food, nature, loads of gardening, starting the tourist season, great variety in work, good atmosphere.... at our small rural campsite, agro-turismo and B&B!!!
    Do you like gardening AND being active AND being in contact with our guests and our animals (dogs, cats, goats, chickens) and other volunteers and do you love great food, than this is the place for you! We need positive vibes, laughs and hard workers!!! Do not come when you need fulltime internet, wifi, loud music....

    We own a small rural campsite which is situated on a hectare parcel of land. The area is rich in opportunities for entertainment and recreation. There is a man-made lake located 4 kilometres from the campsite. It is the cleanest lake in Europe and an idyllic spot to spend your leisure time. Sometimes we organize a picnic at the lake. There also is a small waterfall at 10 minutes by foot from the terrain, to cool down....
    In spring we need help getting the vegetable gardens ready for the season. Also we start getting the campsite ready for the season: mowing the terrain, taking care of paintwork, carpenter work and lots more. All hands are welcome, no special skills are needed as long as you like nature, hard working in a nice atmosphere and combining work and laughter!

    We take real good care with food and beverage! We look for people with experience in gardening and working with plants and terrain and people who know about building, constructing and renovating. We take people for 4 weeks maximum.
