  • Description



    We are a couple living in the beautiful region called "La Gaume" in south of Belgium. This area is surrounded by nature with great biodiversity. There is plenty of activities to do and a real potential to connect yourself with nature.
    We have been traveling a lot around this wide world and now is time for us to ground a little bit and start bigger project. We live on a big land of 2 hectares with a very complex and interesting biosphere. There is a little forest with wet ground hosting castors, there is big trees with a platform inside, a stream, a pond and two huge yards. Soon there will be a vegetable garden with a greenhouse, chickens and ducks, and perhaps even a goat :)

    We have too many eco constructions and art creation ideas but not enough hands to work on it. We would be really happy to host international volunteers to help us. And of course we are always open for new ideas also !

    There is a big house to live in but we can also install tents or park a van in the yard if you have one,
    We love nature and ecology but also the social aspect of life; bonfire , music circle, dance, workshops, shared meals and conversations, cultural exchange and so on

    We speak French, English and Spanish
