LARGE, OLD CANAL HOUSE.
I am English, married to Gertrude (my dutch partner) and we live in Amsterdam with our two young children. We have just bought an old dutch house over looking a beautiful canal in the east side (about 10 mins from the centre). It needs a lot of work and care to bring it back to its original condition as the old owners have not touched it since the 1970's
Although, I have some experience in reform projects in the UK and Spain (where we lived for 15 years), I do not have expertise in building work and I am getting older !
Can you help me restore this great old 19th century Amsterdam house ?
Whatever your experience (even if you can just help labouring). It is not important to have building experience ! we are looking forward to hearing from you!

A permaculture farm since 1982, we host six hundred visitors a year as well as people taking courses, interns, students and people from all walks of life. Feel free to join us if you're interested in an alternative lifestyle with a focus on organic gardening.

Work = love in action; we expect all our volunteers to perform valuable help, please no mental or physical slacking.

We are located in Schriek, Belgium.

Anyone willing to volunteer 5 hours/day is welcome to join us.

Help consists of: carpentry, building, gardening obviously; scratching, seeding, watering, weeding, making jam & curry, cleaning, etc. a plethora of activities mostly outdoors.

We have an ongoing year-round permaculture theory & practice course. Come and join, we work by the principle of contribution = you give what it's worth to you.

In our experience nearly all of our volunteers have called their visit to our farm an eye-opener; to many our inspirations were a library they didn't know existed. Ou... more inside

!! 1 volunteer needed, start between 27th and 30th of Dec !!

My hostel is a great place to experience local life, culture and history. All my rooms are themed and provide background information on typical Dutch places, things and people. I have a team of 10 locals which are all enthusiastic about where they are from. We are like a family and welcome you to join us.

Throughout the year I am looking for 2 people to help out. There are two things I need your help with. You're doing both of the jobs during your stay.

1) Being the nightwatch. You sleep next to the night entrance, if people lose their card to enter, or the fire alarm goes off, or guests make too much noise you are the person to come into action. Generally you sleep like a baby, but in case something happens you jump on your feet and go for it!

2) Making beds and helping with small chores: I have a couple of lovely cleaning ladies who can use your hand with making my 53 beds (not every day ofcourse).

Hi!
We are a young family, with kids ages 1 and 4.
During summertime (April-September) we run our organic espresso bar at festivals and markets.
Sometimes we bring our kids, when we are sure it's a kids-friendly festival. And some of the times they will stay at home.

So, preferably :) , we are looking for 2 people who have experience as a barista (or at least hospitality work) AND want to work as an au pair/take care of our kids.

At the moment we are signing up for the festivals, some outside of Holland.
During the festival we provide the entrance fee (obviously), food and drinks, and we have a tent for you to sleep in.
Transport to the festival will most probably be in our truck, unless you can find your own way up there!?
Before and after the festival you can stay in our house, which isn't very big so you have to be okay with kids running around and really integrate in our family :)

We don't have set hours that we want you to work for us. Usually it all happens nat... more inside

Hello there, we are An and Dries and the kids: Joke, Arke, Nelke and Bieke.
Our project consists of building a "Natural House".
Currently we are building our temporary house (42m²) and next year we plan to build our final house. Both are (going to be) roundwood timber frame with strawbale infill.
The temporary house is almost finished we are busy applying the earth plaster on the inside walls. Base coat is almost on and we plan to start the finish coat soon. So if you are a creative soul feel free to come and ad some colour and shapes to our walls :-).
Probably while the walls are drying we will start on the base coat of the earthen floors.

The work that we do is mainly a building job an so we are mainly looking for helpers that are interested in natural building and want to gain practical experience. You don't need special skills if you want to come, if you're motivated, eager to learn and have an eye for detail that's the most important.

The work will consist of maki... more inside

Hi, I have a nursery specialised in perennials and bulbs. We are situated only 5 minutes away from the historical city of Bruges. Working with plants is my passion but from time to time I could use some help in busy periods. have Minimum stay is 1 month or more as we have to learn some plant skills to the volunteers. We are very social and like to have people around. Good meals and a friendly house are provided!

Come live and work in back-to-basics paradise for a while! :-)
This is a healing and inspiring place that is already serving by bringing people together in a most harmonizing way. All people that have been here, go back home a more connected person. When you are volunteering at The Oak, you become part of a small-scale project with a great impact.

Staying for at least a week helps to get familiar with the work that needs to be done, although shorter stays are welcomed as well. (There is no max. limit for stays, as long as it feels good to all.)
Wanted from APRIL on: cooks responsible for the kitchen; people used to working in (ecological) building projects and especially people with carpenting skills. However, anyone who is a bit handy and wants to be part of manifesting this (already) healing project is very welcome!

BACKGROUND INFO
I'm building a hobbitlike, ecological round and spiraling small weekend house (mainly wood and hempcrete), called Robur at The Oak. The map do... more inside
