    Description

    Dear travelers,

    We are working very passionately to become a nice place. We are offering you a temporary place to stay deep in the forest with all modern comfort you want. In this process there is lots of work to do and we sincerely need responsible, pro active people and also skillful people who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.

    If you consider yourself as such, feel free to apply for a position as short or long term volunteer.

    In exchange for sharing with you our place, we expect from you to contribute to maintaining the generoul outlook of the place, the animals and the garden. In the meantime, we are happy to teach you anything you don’t know yet and wish to give you the knowledge you need.

    The animals
    We have chickens and a peacock.
    The chikens needs their water refreshed daily and their shelter being cleaned.

    The garden
    You will be responsible for watering, weeding, seeding, translplanting, harvesing and processing the harvest.

    - Maintaining and developing the location
    Keeping the terrace clean, be welcoming to guests, cutting grass, mapping out hiking trails, writing blogposts, adding pictures on social media, etc..

    We respect teamwork and teaching eachother skills that others may not have or like to share.

    In your other freetime we invite you to:
    - delve into nature > there are amazing trails around where you are immersed in magical nature. We can guide you or you can follow your own footsteps or use on of our bicycles (if you are careful)


    If you like to cook, feel free to take part and/or suggest something you like to prepare.

    Ask us any questions that arise beforehand and during your stay.

    With forest love from:
    Orzo, Anna, the kids, the dog, and all the other animals :)
