 Min stay requested: at least a week

  • Description


    we are two families: (4 adults from 30-45 and 5 kids from 0-5) living together in a beautiful old mansion with a wonderful view over land and mountains. the 2 ha of land surrounding the house is full of fruit trees, berries, herbs, flowers and vegetables.. we are cultivating our garden on permaculturel principles and we try to become as self-sustainable as possible. so the food we harvest in summer and autumn will bring us trough winter and spring.
    our kids are donated with this place to grow up and we give them as much freedom as they need to be able to develop independently and to become confindent and happy.
    they are always accompained by our verry loyal and friendly dog, which is also always happy to play with adults ;) there are also chicken, indian running ducks, two guinea fowls, three cats and two fluffy rabbits who are living with us. there is always something to do around the house as is it is really nicely overgrown by grapes, roses and other wonderful plants.

  • Help


    -we like to finish the greenhouse with old windows, for the winterveggies
    - build some frames for protecting the highraised beds from the cold weather
    -in autumn we have loads of apples to harvest and bring them to the juice bottlers.
    -there is a whole kitchen waiting to be installed in the kitchen in the house.

    also in autumn we have many plans for the garden:
    -re-build the fence around the vegetable garden to avoid bambi's lunchparty :)
    -the soil in the vegetable garden needs compost
    -there is a 3 years old quince tree in the garden who needs to be planted to the fruit tree orchard
    -some new fruit trees need to be planted

    ...and there is still so much more to do! but with most of the things we are not in hurry :) you can help us with the projects, spend time with the kids or care for food and household so we can work.

    according to the arrangement you will be working 4-5 hours per day for free food and accommodation. our food is mostely vegan but we all have different opinions about food and live a more or less good way that is right for all of us :)
