I recently bought a piece of land (900m³) and would like some help turning it into a vegetable garden/food forest. We (that's my 19 year old daughter and myself) live a quiet, calm life in the center of Sint-Niklaas.
The garden is a few streets away from our house. We like spending time at home, playing with our cat, reading a book, cooking, ... Sometimes we have a little niece or nephew come in for sleepover.
Help with Eco Projects
Preferably I would like someone with experience in gardening and/or building since the garden is now completeled bewildered and will need a lot of work and loving care.
We will start by cleaning up, weeding, cutting, catching the chickens.... and than start building square meter vegetable gardens and planting them. A next job will be building a compost toilet, a herb spiral and fixing up the little wooden cottage.
I would expect you to work 4 days, 4-5 hours a day. The other three days you are free.
We live in a small town house where you get a private room. We eat (mostly) vegetarian.
Sint-Niklaas is a small town, but with lots of free or cheap summer activities: open air music festivals, open air movies, dance nights, ...
We live close to the parc, to the swimming pool, the shopping mall.
We also live close to the train station from where you have frequent trains to Antwerp, Gent, Brussels, Bruges, the seaside, ...
You may use one of our bicycles to get around the town.
