We are the headquarters of a permaculture/agroecology and nut polyculture farm. We run trainings, grow trees and veg, and support local transition initiatives and pioneering post-carbon projects.
We have work throughout the year.
Outdoor work: gardening and orchard maintenance, painting, strimming, planting, cleaning, some construction, etc.
Indoor work: administration, creative/art/design and communication work for our organisation.
You can learn all this stuff from professionals.
We are especially interested in people who have a background in and/or who are seeking to develop their skills in permaculture skills, construction, agroecological farming and regenerative farming.
This is a place in the countryside, so if you are interested in being in a buzzing place with lots of activity or if you get restless easily, you need not apply. If you are a nature person, like to be alone, and can immerse yourself in a quiet space, this is the place for you.
When you apply, please write down your experience and how you would like to contribute in your message. We will then contact you with a form and an interview time (zoom/skype) to get to know you better.
We want people to commit to a minimum of 2 weeks, preferably longer. For your learning benefit, we prefer longer stays. Talk to us.
We would like you to work autonomously and treat the place as if it were your own :-)

Help around the house
We are a group of people (French, German, Luxembourgish, Belgian, Romanian) with quite different backgrounds (e.g. anthropology, nature pedagogics, sociology, medicine, IT, mechanic, craftsman, yoga teacher, massage therapist, designer…). We are building our permaculture community living, small ecovillage and training centre since 2020.
Besides we are also interested in: politics, economy, mindfulness practices, neurosciences, art, design, history, social change, games, cooking, walking...
The help will be depending on the season, and the development of the project. So besides garden and orchard work, there is also renovations in the house. If you are interested, we can also give you the responsibility for a smaller project to see through either in the garden or in the arts/creative. We are open to talking about your skills and seeing what areas you want to learn in.
We want people who are self-motivated and really can drive themselves. So please only apply if you can motivate yourself, be on time to start work and be responsible with our tools and a what we provide to work. We also want people who are clean and tidy, who can clean up after themselves and contribute to the already clean place we have.
We are very accommodating and happy to have volunteers who are willing to learn share and work with us. We have flexible work hours and this can be discussed in more detail in the application process.
We have wireless internet and plenty of books to keep you entertained.
Room with a double bed in the house, with a shared bathroom and kitchen.
We are near Arlon, a nice little city with good transport to Brussels and Luxembourg. There is an ok bus connection, but we can also give you lifts when we go to the nursery, and we have a few bikes for you to use.
