    We are a family with 5 kids. In november one more will join us! We live in Melle, near Gent and are the lucky owners of a house with a beautiful green garden and a vegetable garden. We live as much as possibly ecological and vegie/vegan. We are inspired by the antroposofy off Steiner. All our kids go to Steiner Schools. We love peacefull and silence evenings. If possible with a drivers license. We will offer you daily fresh healty food together with the family and a nice cosy room in the house with a bed, desk and Wi-Fi. We don't have a tv but once a while we watch a dvd together with the kids. We love to walk in nature and practice yoga.
    You will be a part off the family and can join uss if we go on a daytrip.

    We are looking for someone who wants to stay in our family between January 2022 and june 2022.

    You can lear about the way we live in Belgium and how we try to be good for the planet and mother earth. The sea one the one side of our country (1h driving) and the woods on the other side off our country (2h driving) offer nice possibilities for daytrips. We are also experienced in vegie and vegan cooking. My husband and the oldest son are fervently rock climbers.
