Experiment with Self-Sufficiency on a Small Eco Farm in Brakel, Belgium.

~ ABOUT BOSKANTER ~

We're an educational non-profit that wants to inspire people to become less dependent on fossil fuels by taking life into their own hands. We do this with a number of ecological projects and by creating a place where we can share knowledge through workshops and activities.

- We bake sourdough bread in a wood-fired masonry oven for locals.
- From time to time we organise workshops about baking bread, working with clay, making and using natural paints, and building rocket stoves.
- And there are regular activities here, such as the quarterly Repair Café at which people help each other with repairs, and the monthly Pizzeria where locals meet, and enjoy delicious pizzas from our oven.

Boskanter is a place where you have the opportunity to try new things, experiment, and learn about living in a more simple, sustainable and self-sufficient way. Therefore you can learn a lot here, abo... more inside

Our house, which used to be an old barn, burned down in 2015. We are now rebuilding it completely by hand and converting the ruins into four zero-energy houses. We are therefore looking for volunteers with experience or an interest in construction between April and November.

You will stay in the house next door, which is fully furnished and comfortable, and we will provide food, though you will do your own cooking. You will be required to do four to five hours of work per (week-)day.

Our place is uniquely situated on a canal that runs between the lively cities of Delft and Rotterdam. The tiny, friendly village of around 100 inhabitants is surrounded by meadows and the area is ideal for cycling. There are no shops, but there is an hourly bus to Rotterdam and Delft (ca. 15 minutes) and you can borrow our bicycles and canoe/boat.

PLEASE NOTE that we will only respond to volunteers who have actually read this text. Only too often do we receive messages from people who are clear... more inside

Help needed march 22 - march 30

Are you traveling the Netherlands?

Hi, I am Anna, 57, and I live between Rotterdam and Dordrecht, two very different and interesting city's. Rotterdam is a big town that was bombed in WOII and rebuild, with beautiful architecture. It has the largest port of Europe. Dordrecht is a smaller town with an old city center, a lot of nice small shops and beautiful waterways.

The distance to both Rotterdam or Dordrecht is 12 km. The train station is 2 km away. Nearby my house there is a large rural area. I have a bicycle available for you. De Hollandse Biesbosch near Dordrecht is a beautiful nature area where you can make lovely walks.

There is a bedroom with carpeting and I want that replaced with laminate. Because there is a lot of furniture I cannot do it on my own, don’t have the strenght. I am thinking about 4 hours of work a day. This leaves you enough time to explore the area and see more of the beautiful Netherlands.

You will have you... more inside

!! TEAM COMPLETE - no volunteers needed at the moment !!

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 several things I need your help with. During your stay you will do all the jobs.

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) Help in the kitchen
In the morning you are helping me out in the kitchen during breakfast. You will prepare lovely local goods and you don't even need to be a kitchen-pri... more inside

Hi there! Would you like to learn more about the cultivation of tulips and lilies? And would you like to know what it is like to live in a polder?

We are a family of four (41, 39, 5 and 3 years old). We enjoy making new friends.

We live in a small rural town, one hour north of Amsterdam. We produce tulip and lily bulbs. Springtime is a very beautiful and busy time of the year here.

We ask you to help us 5 hours per day. The type of help depends on your interests and skills. It could be farm work, gardening, cooking, cleaning, painting, or baby sitting. In return you can sleep and eat with us and we will show you around in the area. You will sleep in a guestroom, which is separate from our own house, with your own toilet and bathroom.

Would you like to meet us and stay with us one or two weeks? Please send us a message!

Best Regards,
Geert, Marja, Arie en Thijs
