Come help in our garden in a small village in the canton of Vaud in Lausanne, Switzerland



 Min stay requested: at least 2 weeks



  • Description


    We are looking for boys who are comfortable working with brush cutters, etc. from June 15 to June 30.
    Nous recherchons des garçons qui soient a l aise pour des travaux avec les debroussailleuses etc...du 15 juin au 30 juin.


    To come to us, the workaweyer must have a basic knowledge of French to understand the instructions.
    I go to work some mornings elsewhere and the workaweyer can therefore be alone.
    We ask for 4 hours of work per day, with 2 days off at the end of a week, sometimes 8 hours one day and off the other day, and that leaves you a full day to go and visit... to be agreed together. We do our organic garden but we don't do it to sell. We have no experience in permaculture.
    We do not accept smokers.
    It is ESSENTIAL to have accident and health insurance. We had a workaweyer who was taken by ambulance and if he hadn't had insurance....
    For more information, please feel free to contact us!

    This year we would accept 1 campervan from time to time, I need help with mine.
    Pour venir chez nous, le workaweyer doit avoir une base de français pour comprendre les consignes.
    Je pars travailler certains matins ailleurs et le workaweyer peut donc être seul.
    Nous travaillons les 20h hebdomadaires comme suit: 2 jours a 8h de travail + 1/2 jour à 4h. de travail cela vous laisse plusieurs journées complètes pour partir visiter... Nous faisons notre jardin bio mais nous ne faisons pas pour vendre. Nous n avons aucune expérience en permaculture.

    Nous n acceptons pas les fumeurs.
    Il est INDISPENSABLE d avoir une assurance accident et maladie. Nous avons eu un workaweyer qui a été emmené en ambulance et si il n avait pas eu d assurance....

    Cette année, nous accepterions 1 camping-car de temps à autre, j ai besoin d aide pour le mien.

    What else ...

    We live in a small village in the canton of Vaud, near the town of Vevey, Lausanne and Fribourg. From our House you can take the train (5 minutes) go to these towns (they are 20 minutes by train or car), or if you prefer to stay on the campaign, you can go for a short or long walks, there are plenty of hikes around! If you have a bike too, there are many ways to roll! Last year, we had several workaway and it was a great experience, all these young people with whom we spent good times to laugh and to work in a good mood. For many years, we had a lot of students from German Switzerland, they were interested in learning French, it's like a custom for us to have someone in our House! :-)
