  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with 2 children (our daughter Sophie, 18 years old, our son Charel, 15 years old). We grove organic vegetables in Beckerich, Luxemburg 10 km away from Arlon, Belgium. You'll live in a house only for helpers in the main road of our little village. The field is 1 km away from the house. We have a bus connection to Luxemburg city (33 km away from Beckerich). From there you can take trains in each direction. Our little country has 3 direct neighboring countries to visite, Germany, France, and Belgium. Or you can make a weekend trip to Netherland.

    Your accomodation will be a bedroom in our house where you can cook and eat together after the work in the field.
    You could prepare and eat vegetables from the field.

    Don't be afraid of getting dirty and be prepared to do physical work

    WE NEED VOLUNTEERS THAT ARE RESPONSIBLE, CLEAN AND RESPECTFULL OF INDEPENDENT SPACES BECAUSE YOU WILL SHARE BATHROOM, KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM WITH OTHER VOLUNTEERS

    The work is starting at 7 am from tuesday till saturday the weekends and the afternoons are free.
    We have internet connection in the house.
    I Jang have a job in the city were i have to go each day, so you will only be together with Thessy which is the boss in the field. She is a really relaxed women of 45 years and needs your help. If you smoke you can do this outside the house please. We don't have any animals but we have much people arround us with animals.

    We prefer vegetarian helpers because we are a vegetable farm.

    SEE YOU IN LUXEMBURG

    Luxemburg is a beautiful little country with different regions, each with his special charm. Dimensions +- 82 km long and 54 km larg. So it is very small. Public transport with bus and train is free in Luxemburg. We have a beautiful capital with an old history.

    We have a season of vegetation from February till November in Luxemburg. So we need help on the field in this time. It's like helping in a big garden. BRING YOUR OWN WORKING GLOVES AND BOOTS WITH YOU.
    The minimum to stay with us is 1 month because it take to much time to me to explain and reorganize everything at each arrival
    Thanks a lot for your understanding
