Spend some time at our Dutch eco-hostel as a builder!

We are in our 2nd season as an eco hostel and it's really starting to come along. We have a permaculture garden, edible forest, composting toilets, an outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen, an adobe pizza oven and of course our animals. Since we’re an eco-hostel and a centre for permaculture, we focus on re-use of materials and are continuously building and improving. Guests from all over the world come to spend time here from mid april unto mid october, there's people coming and going every day.

Because we are still developing, we could really use someone handy who can help build. That means that you partake in projects such as building an outdoor shower, a greenhouse, putting in windows, insulating the barn and do small repairs and maintenance. We re- and upcycle as much as we can, so if you’re creative and a problem solver, that’s a big plus.

What we offer:
Fresh, healthy, homemade food every day
A shared room/private tent (or bring your own)
Our place and all the fun and beauty that comes with it
A melting pot of people from all walks of life
Get to know Groningen and Dutch culture

What we ask:
Stay with us for a minimum of 3 weeks
Work an average of 30 hours a week
You have experience in (eco-)building
You are a problem solver
You are comfortable with a dynamic work environment
You speak English fluently. Extra points for Dutch speaking skills!
