This year we can host 2-3 helpers until the end of September. The minimum period to stay is 2 weeks but we prefer longer. The longer the better!

In the next periods we have place:

Now - August 10: 2 places
August 10 - August 22: full
August 22 - October 15: 1 place

(Every week I update this list)

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 5 to 8 dutch volunteers / trainees and 2-3 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 two "caravans", nicely situated in the gardens. There is wifi in the cantina, a hot shower, a nice kitchen and we can do your laundry.
The food is as much as possible from the garden and organic.

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.

Kind regards,
