    Description

    Hello!

    We are a family of 4, living in the south of Holland. My mom (60), my two brothers (20,18) and one daughter, me! (20)
    We have a big farm with a really big garden and some horses, chickens, birds, cats and a dog. We live outside the city but close to public transport.

    We live close to the sea (1,5 hour drive), but even closer to some really pretty lakes (15 min drive), and the forrest (5 min drive).

    On our free days, we wouldLalso love to take you to some nice places around! Or you could chill in our big swimming pool on the hotter days!

    We are looking for some help with the garden and some other small projects. We are happy to show you around the area and to take you to the local hotspots.

    You could sleep in your own private caravan which is on our land. Or if you don't like this, we could take a look at our small cabin located on the land!

    We prefer workawayers for 3 hours a day in return for accomodation (without meals, but you have the possibility to cook for yourself).

    You can also choose 5 hours working a day , with meals. But it is possible to discuss this per day

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We could show you around this pretty little country and show you all the hotspots for the locals. We also have a big swimming pool which you could use during the warmer days.

    If you're interested, my mom is a Dutch teacher to for example russian people. And she would like to teach you!
    I can teach you the basics of Spanish and German, or I could help you improve your English.

    You can learn everything about gardening and green energy around here!

    Help

    We live on a big farm with some horses, chickens, birds, cats and a dog. We also have a lot of land, and a really big garden.

    We are looking for someone who could help us with work in the garden or in the house. It's up to you! You could also do both, or a combination.

    Work in the garden
    Working with my mom and me in the garden. It's never really difficult or hard work. We have our own little farm grown kitchen garden, so you could help picking some berries or cherries!
    Furthermore you could help us cutting the hedges, mowing the grass, cleaning up branches and other small tasks like that.

    Cleaning in the house
    If you don't like the garden, or if you want to combine it, you could also help my mom cleaning the house. This would include cleaning the tables, and other furniture. Or help with the cooking, cleaning or vaccuming.

    My oldest brother has autism, and if you want to work with him (taking him for a walk, go shopping with him, walk the dog together etc.) You could also help us!

    And if you have any suggestions on what you would like to do, just let us know! My mom is really nice and appreciates all kinds of work and help!

    What else ...

    We live on the beautifull farm area in the south of Holland, public transport is 15 minutes by bike (which you could rent from us of course).

    As I'm still in university, I have some days off during the week and in the summer break, and I could take you around Holland to show you everything you want to see!


    I'm Always looking forward to meeting new people, as I have travelled a lot myself. I have lived in Spain when I was 18 and in Norway last year. So I'm Always up for new adventures!!
