We can offer a nice place to stay from the end of March till halfway october. In this period we have place for maximum 3 helpers. The minimum period to stay is 2 weeks but we prefer longer.

Today - September 24: 1 place
September 24 - October 20: 2 places.

In our big organic garden with a beautiful design we grow, show and conserve the biggest private collection vegetables and other eatables of the Netherlands. We grow over 100 kinds of potatoes, 80 different garlics, 300 types of beans, many different nuts, herbs, flowers, fruits etc.

In summer we organize touristic activities on the gardens. We live in the north of Holland, surrounded by a varied and beautifull countryside. Our gardens are situated in the historic prison village of Veenhuizen. Nearby is the pleasant city of Assen and the big student city Groningen.

You are very welcome to help us with sowing, weeding, harvesting and a lot of other things that have to be done. We like it very much to work with people from other countries, together with our local helpers. In general we work with 3-6 dutch volunteers / trainees and 3 foreign volunteers / trainees.

We ask you to help 30 hours a week in a flexible way. In return we provide good food and accommodation for 7 days a week.
As accomodation we have a "caravan", nicely situated in the gardens. There is wifi in the cantina, a hot shower, a beautifull kitchen and we can do your laundry.
The food is as much as possible from the garden.

Besides the work you will have plenty of time to enjoy the gardens, explore the countryside walking or by bike, taste the beer of the local brewery, visit student city Groningen etc.etc.

Kind regards,
