    We have lots of power tools, and can buy something else if needed.

    *Care, attention, experience and common sense is needed to handle tools to avoid accidents or damaging of tools.*

    Masonry would be awesome to build a outdoor Bathtub with rocks. We have a plastic mould for that.

    We need Responsible, Respectful, Clean, Comitted, Proactive, Skilfull, Strong, Trustworthy, Autonomous, Capable, Critical Thinkers, Independent volunteers. Oh and Funny is a plus!

    Minimal stays of 3-4 weeks as it is time consuming to explain how everything works. Depending on your Skills & Profile we can consider less but effective time.

    Water saving is important.
