    in March, April, May plenty of things to learn and do in the vegetable garden


    Welcome at our horse & family farm

    And for 2024 we are looking for someone who would like to stay for 3 up to 6 months.

    We live at a farm in the Ardennes where we look for balance between our professional life and our passion horses and nature.
    I'm a yoga teacher, shiatsu practitioner and horse coach, Henk is a professional coach.

    We are a family of 5, our eldest son is 24, the one in the middle is 19 and our daughter of 16. We love animals, have a couple of dogs and different cats living in the house and outside we have horses 🐴 and chickens.

    in spring & summer : extra gardening

    Everything depends on your capabilities :)


    We can show you some nice walks by foot/bicycle.

    We invite you in our home & family and make you part of it. We prefer volunteers who can operate independently as we work a couple of days outside of the farm

    You'll have a room to yourself or with an other volunteer in our farm with a bathroom (you share with others) on the floor below. Our farm is a 180 year old building, everyone has his own room, so yes it's pretty big.

    We can not accept volunteers travelling with their pets (dogs, cats, ...) .
