    We are taking care of a beautiful historic property in a special natural setting on the dutch/belgian border between Antwerp and Breda.

    Experience in sustainable farming, forestry and gardening. Everything is small scale, therefore a lot of variety in tasks and challenges. We take the time to explain and give and take open feedback.
    No TV, no radio, just social life indoor and outdoor
    No CocaCola, no Macdonalds, just plain pure local food and drinks
    (sorry, only Belgian beer ;-)
