  • Description


    Usually I travel the world both for work and for interest in other cultures, nature and art, but now I have a project in Holland to restore an old farm, dating back to 1811. Only a few walls are still standing. Also, the garden needs a lot of attention. I speak English, German and French, but I would also like to learn Spanish. It would be great if you could come in for 2 weeks or more and work 5 hours a day. There is a new tiny house available to stay in, or a campervan and I will take care of meals once a day. A large natural park is nearby. This is my first time at Workaway but as I can foresee it will be a long term project.

    Por lo general, viajo por el mundo tanto por trabajo como por interés en otras culturas, la naturaleza y el arte, pero ahora tengo un proyecto en Holanda para restaurar una antigua granja, que data de 1811. Solo algunas paredes siguen en pie. Además, el jardín necesita mucha atención. Hablo inglés, alemán y francés, pero también me gustaría aprender español. Sería genial si pudieras venir por 2 semanas o más y trabajar 5 horas al día. Hay una nueva tiny house disponible para quedarse o un furgoneta y me haré cargo de las comidas una vez al día. Un gran parque natural está cerca. Esta es mi primera vez en Workaway pero, como puedo prever, será un proyecto a largo plazo.

    we are not really far from bigger cities like Eindhoven, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. You can learn about building and gardening and perhaps improve your English, German, or French in exchange for teaching Spanish. We could also learn about each other's national cuisine.

    At first it will be necessary to prepare the site for its construction and restoration. It will be necessary to remove some of the vegetation and tree roots. You can also prepare a part of the garden. Maybe you can do some tests with permaculture.

    Al principio será necesario preparar el lugar para su construcción y restauración. Será necesario eliminar parte de la vegetación y las raíces de los árboles. También puedes preparar una parte del jardín. Quizás puedas hacer algunas pruebas con permacultura.
