Hi!

**looking for help from the 12th July onwards now that borders are all open (and we’ve already welcomed helpers back)**

We are a young couple (Mathieu is French and sophie is English) with a 2 year old and a second which is supposed to pop out in August.

At the moment we’d ideally be looking for someone who knows a bit about gardening (veggie patch, cutting back some trees and making the outside of our house nicer), can do some cleaning and cooking as Sophie is on strict (ish) rest to prevent our baby coming too early again!

we have a house in a beach town (ambleteuse) which we are still doing some works on. The work can involve any of the following: up cycling furniture, painting and decorating, flooring, some Carpenter kind of jobs, gardening, tiling, plumbing and electricity would be amazing, cleaning, sanding...


We would expect roughly 4 sometimes 5 hours per day per person, and of course if you'd like days off to explore you can spread this out how you l... more inside

The place is a farm. On 1 hectare, surrounded by pasture and animals, the maintenance tasks are numerous: aging fences, faded paintings without forgetting a botanical garden where we cultivate perennials, roses, aromatic plants and other unusual tree species. All this little world each year grows to the point that sometimes it becomes invasive.
we keep the place authentic.
We established a rural house in which French and internationals come and enjoy the surroundings. We need support to maintain it and welcome vacationers. It is an integral part of farm life.
If you are tempted by adventure, we offer fully equipped accommodation.

Hello,

We live in a little farm, in the Northern part of France, near Lille and Belgium. We arrived here more than 30 years ago and we really like this region.
I came back on the farm three years ago to grow organic hop. We also take care of an apple orchard. My parents are also on the farm. As my mum was primary-school teacher on the farm, we are used to welcome and host people. It's a very happy and simple farm, a very nice place to live in, work together and rest when needed!

Our farm is an organic small-scale farm willing to be as autonomous as possible. We initiate projects to deal with climate change and the upcoming issues. We are welcoming and always ready to share our experience.

We mainly work on the hop crops and the orchard. All year long, there are things to do in the hopyard and orchard as taking care of the growing plants, taking the weeds out, cutting the grass, planting and prune trees… Thus, it means, we also do all the works related to this culture (dryi... more inside

Hi! I'm Alex, a young man living in the heart of Flanders. A nice place for sightseeing, walking, cycling, or discovering an Estaminet: a traditionnal bar which often serves local dishes. There we can playing old Flemish games, drink different local beers and listening traditional musics. I'm looking for a dutch teacher!

My home is a thatched cottage with a big garden. I've got 2 minipigs, hives anda little barnyard.

Recently installed, there is a lot of things to do: housekeeping, cooking, sanding, painting,tiling work,gardening (planting a hedge in February, I need help :) ), fencing, building an enclosure for the pigs, building a garden shed, creating a garden lounge, ..



I was a helper when I travelled in Australia and I really enjoyed this experience. I like discovering new people and sharing our lifestyles. And improve my English as well! Or any other language. Tell me how you can help me, I'm sure we'll find something to do .

Hello!

Our farm is a community that has a chicken pen, five sheep, a greenhouse, a vegetable garden, some fruit trees and a field that aren't currently cultivated. On that site, we are also welcoming refugees (from November 1st) from the camps of Calais and Grande Synthe, who don't have access to emergency shelters this winter. These two facets of our project co-exist in that the products of the farm are used to feed the community (of a dozen people); we don't sell anything.

The volunteer has the following tasks:
- managing outdoor spaces and production tools
- preparing the fields to be cultivated in the spring
- looking after the chicken pen and the sheep
This is all happening within a community that's motivated for these tasks to be carried out together. You are encouraged to be initiative-driven and to propose experiments on site, especially in terms of raising awareness and working together with people who are welcomed on site.

We are also looking for people ... more inside

The chateau was acquired to form the base for a small community focused on developing and supporting a range of new technologies. The site is connected to the Global Change Foundation, an organisation that supports new technology initiatives and other projects designed to assist humanity in moving forward in these challenging times. We have been running a very pleasing 'visiting community' experiment here for several years, getting the site set up and ready, doing repairs and some new facilities - and generally getting used to living and working together. We have met a lot of great HelpX volunteers, and a much has been achieved by them! Oh yes, and we have a reputation for near-gourmet food, so you won't go hungry! AND NOTE: the leaking roof (mentioned in one of our last reviwers comments) has now been fixed (needing 80 new slates!)and so things have dried out.

In exchange for bed and board we are looking for willing people with any combination of skills: be you a good gardener, ... more inside

I'm a mother of two boys of 24 and 26, and I'm living in the heart of a beautiful and peaceful green valley, at about 25km from the Opal Coast. I run a small B&B in our old charming farmhouse, and work also as a music teacher. I lost my husband 4 years ago and my sons are not often at home, so I'd be very happy with a helping hand with the house and the gardens, and with the B&B. I very much enjoy meeting new people, having interesting conversations about all kinds of subjects and do really appreciate the given help. There's a good balance between work and relaxing in a most respectful ambiance. Helpers should know that I'm away from home for my job. If learning French is one of your motivations, I'll be happy to help you to improve your language skills. Only contact by e-mail please.

Annie and I are renovating our house and log chalet, ready for french students studying english. A lot of work has been done but still a long way to go! At the moment we are about to put back together an acquired conservatory.We are looking for help with general building work, nothing specialised, but another strong pair of hands about the place. We are trying to do up our house for free as a challenge to our selves by recycling, reusing, readapting what we have or can swap, barter or source locally.A lot of our food is grown locally, or at this time of year there is an abundant supply of free food in the fields and hedgerows, so lots of home cooking. Don't eat a lot of meat, some fish, but healthy! Accommodation for our helpx will be in the main house or the log chalet. Whoever is brave enough to come to us will be warmly welcomed as part of the family. All food drinks etc., Included, transport when we go on shopping trips etc., evenings out sometimes, or evenings in with books, ga... more inside
