AT this moment we are mainly looking for helpers that know how to paint and do woodwork and can help us with other building jobs as we are in the middle of constructing the retreat center!

We moved to Zeeland in 2014, because we wanted a different lifestyle. We want to be as self sufficient as possible. We have just build an energy neutral wooden house and last two winters we planted over 2500 trees and bushes to create a windfree garden for the nuts and fruit trees and the vegetable garden. Also we created a vegetable circle with all kinds of vegetables, a passarella for edible climbing plants and we have a green house.
Most of the work will be in the garden, planting veggies, but also digging trenches, building mounds, trimming and so forth. We wish to dig a small water to welcome frogs and other animals that have snails for dinner :)
Also some help in the Household or painting the chicken shed that we build from leftover material, could be your job. Next projects are building an outside kitchen. Also we are building a shed.

Working hours are flexible.
We speak dutch, english and spanish
We have chickens, three dogs and a cat and it is important to us that you like animals.
You have the main meal with us (mostly vegetarian) the rest of the meals are provided for you. You sleep in a caravan on the same property. The farm is situated 2 kms outside of the village Scharendijke, 4 kms from the beach. There is a busstop nearby, but big cities are not close (45 mins to Vlissingen, 60 mins to Rotterdam (by car). Zierikzee is closeby though (a nice old town with lots of bars and restaurants), so is Renesse (a real tourist place, very alive in summer).
I, Estrella, work as a lifecoach and healer and Erik is a designer. We do meditation and yoga and you are welcome to join us.
We are looking for non-smokers.
Please e-mail us if you want more information. We are looking forward to welcoming you!
