    Description

    We are a couple of about 65 y , living in a restaurated farm, with a big ecological garden, in the north of Belgium, between the historical cities Brugge and Gent, and close to the coast. We produce all vegetables , fruits, herbs and nuts ecologically, to prepare the meals for the volunteers and for our family. We have a big vegetable garden, green houses, an orchard, a vineard, and different animals like sheep, chickens, rabits, a horse, cats .... So lots of work have to be done. We can use all kinds of help, in the field, the garden, the greenhouses, the buildings... depending the season and the weather. We provide accomodation, meals and drinks. Stay at least 10-14 days.
