Whost 1 (Viane Geraardsbergen)

We live in an ecologically remodelled old farm on approximately 1 hectare of land. The property is situated in a rural area near a small village, about 8 kilometres away from the city Geraardsbergen/Grammont. Since 2006, the garden has been designed according to the principles of permaculture. We try to be self-sufficient in our food supply as far as possible. We grow a large variety of vegetables in the kitchen garden, exclusively for own use and for guests. There are flower beds and a herb garden, fruit trees, berries and several chickens and some turkeys . The estate is surrounded by hedgerows which provide firewood in the winter. Any time of the year we can use help in the garden with sowing and planting, weeding, harvesting, caring for the animals... We bake bread and make fruit juice and jams. Vegetables and herbs are dried in the solar dryer. The main activity during winter is replenishing the wood stock used for heating. Pruning trees, chopping wood, cleaving and stacking. From December on, the willow trees and several hazels are pruned. The thick branches are sawn to firewood. The thinner branches are shredded and used for mulching. Around that time we also start making plans for next year's seeding and planting.
As a wwoofer you sleep in the yurt that is fully furnished with beds, a kitchen and a wood stove. You share the yurt with other wwoofers. In the summer months you can possibly stay in a caravan, which also has cooking facilities. You prepare breakfast and dinner yourself or together with other wwoofers. For lunch you are invited by the host, the days that you help. The weekend you are free. All the food you need you get from your Whost, with the exception of meat or fish.

Whost 23 (Bever)

We live in Akrenbos, a small village in a rural area at the border of 'het pajottenland', 'de vlaamse ardennen' and 'les pays de collines'. We have 1 ha of land that's adjacent to a large forest, it's located in an agricultural area in a quiet and beautiful region with a rolling countryside. In 2011 this land was still cultivated by a farmer who grew the medicinal plant Angelica according to the old farming tradition of this region. In 2012 we started to reorganize the land to a place of biodiversity according to the principles of permaculture. We just started (March 2012) to organize the land in different zones: closest to the house we are making a kitchen garden with woven willow constructions, a picking fruit garden and a wooden greenhouse. We will grow a pasture for sheep, a flower and nectar meadow for bees and butterflies and a small cropland to provide the birds with food in the winter. In the autumn of 2013 we will plant a forest of 1200 trees - around the forest we will plant a wood side for birds, butterflies and other insects, we will plant an orchard with several apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, plum trees, walnut trees. Beside that we will construct a pool, to restore the aquatic life. We have five beehives, in august 2013 a small flock of soay sheep and welcome the chickens as soon as the henhouse is built. The aim is to be self-sufficient as much as possible; we grow our own biological vegetables and fruit, to provide our own energy and to have wood from our own forest. We're looking for help to plant our forest, the orchard, the wood sides, the picking fruit garden, but also to help in the kitchen garden: planting, weeding and harvesting, to chop wood, help weaving willow constructions, mowing with the scythe, building the hen house and lots of other chores. Lots of this works are creating works. We also like music and to play, so if you have an instrument, bring it along.

After 3 years of transforming a wilderness of nearly 7500 square meters into an ecological garden with flower borders, meadow for sheep and goats and a vegetable garden, we extended our property with 1 ha of land and a big greenhouse in which we started up a CSA-project in 2014.
If you come to our place, the things you will be doing are maintaining the garden (weeding, mowing, picking fruit and vegetables, looking after the animals, trimming hedges), light construction works on the small premises around and helping us with the bigger amounts of vegetables for the CSA-project. In 2014, there still will be a lot of experimenting, so you will witness the starting up of an interesting project and share ideas with us.
Our small farm is located very well, close to public transport, in the middle of a village from where you can travel easily in one day to all wonderful cities in Flanders (Bruges, Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp). If you stay two weeks, we offer you a free staying of a couple of days in our B&B in Antwerp. We'd like you to work at our place for 4 days a week, 3 days you get off to go and explore.

A well located organic farm of 30 hectares in polyculture. Close to the borders of Germany and Holland. We take care of a lot of different animals : cows, calves, some sheep, one pig, some hens and chickens, a dog and cats. We make cheese and yoghurt with the milk from our cows and we also grow potatos and some vegetables. There is also a holiday cottage. It's a family farm, with a dynamic social life with our 4 daughters and regular visits from our friends. Our first language is French but we can manage with German, Nederlands, Portuguese, Spanish and English. We are seeking help from volunteers to give a little hand with the tasks that need doing... It could be taking care of the animals, helping in the garden or with the cheese and yoghurt fabrication. It's very variable and we try to suit the interests and the abilities of everyone. We ask for about 6 hours of work per day, 1 hour on saturdays and sundays off. But this can also be variable. In return volunteers can enjoy good meals, individual room (there is only one room but if there is a second wwoofer who wants to come we first discussed with the first wwoofer if he's fine with sharing the room), access to internet and plenty of other stuff : bike, advice for the good things to see/do, we have a collection of comic books, walks,...It's easy to go to Germany or Holland.

Our vegetable gardening project is a family one! A small piece of land with an orchard, trees, a glasshouse and a pond with frogs! As our land is at risk of flooding we have many small plots and raised beds. We don't follow any particular style of gardening, we don't use heavy machines (except a big lawn-mower). Everything is grown organically - part of it is distributed to subscribed consumers, some goes to locals in villages around us and there's of course some for us! Productivity is not the primary objective, but we share the philosophy of Pierre Rabhi, ''Searching for coherence for ourselves and the world that surrounds us...''. From here also stems our interest for sharing and exchanging with others.
Sophie also speaks Japanese...

Our family consists of 3 people and a dog : Julie is the baker, the gardener and handy-man is Yoann, the chief animator is Eliot and Tara the independent minded dog! We live in a stone house in the country, in a beautiful village in the municipality of Durbuy.
We are first and foremost fans of the pleasures of the table ; good quality food and regional specialities are important for us. That is why we quickly wanted to make the maximum of our own produce : vegetables, berries, jams, canned vegetables, chutney, apple juice, cider, beer, and especially sourdough bread !
We have indeed opened a small 'artisanal' bakery . Our values: selling directly to the consumer, sourcing our raw materials locally, cooking over a wood fire etc.. Open since November 2013, our small bakery is enjoying a great success because people are happy to find the taste of 'the good old bread', a bread that nourishes and preserves well. To learn more about this project , please visit the website www.lejourdupain.be
We would be delighted to welcome you in our little spot in the countryside . Plenty of space and possibilities to lodge you! Opportunities for walking, hiking, biking or kayak are numerous. We are located near the cities of Marche-en- Famenne and Liège, 2 hours by train from Brussels.

Whost 38 (Gérouville)

We are an association situated on the Franco-Belgian border, which unconditionally hosts pilgrims (only violence, drugs and alcohol are forbidden). Living with respect for the individual and others, our surroundings, nature, this brings us close to the values of simplicity and ecology. Community life and the collective work of the garden are important in our way of life. We want to share with you our interest in the different visions for respectful living (permaculture, the Gertrude Franck method, growing on raised beds, compost...)
We would be pleased to benefit from your enthusiasm to help us with the management of the garden, orchard, green spaces and conservation of our produce.

Whost 39 (Anderlecht)

I am French, 46, trained in agronomy (Ing) and institutional economics (PhD) and I am fond of ecological agriculture and biking (and madrigal). I run an urban potager coop in the center of the town, together with a small team of interns and volunteers (and a broader network). We are facing a rapid development linked with the strong popularity of locally and ecologically grown food. We cultivate and sell fresh vegetables and fruit organically, mainly in our 37-ares potager on the rural side of the town, but also in our more urban sites located nearby the office (including a huge, leafy and aquaponic terrace on top of office). Besides delivering top fresh veggies, we develop aquaponic trouts, growing containers, and pedagogical activities. We need help for daily tasks ranging from tending crops and fish, to helping with animations / communication / marketing / cooking / hosting, depending on skills and motivation. Workload to be discussed. Longer stay preferred (minimum 3 months). I cook preferably vegetarian (with an interest in vital / paleo diets) but do not mind the occasional piece of good meat / fish. My kids (11, 9 and 6) are with me 2-3 days per week.

Whost 41 (Jupille-sur-meuse)

We live in a little paradise, an old stable renovated ecologically (clay ceiling, natural insulation material). 2 other families also live on the farm and we share 6 hectares of land (the farm is situated amidst 20 hectares of grassland and 8 kms from the center of Liège). Living in harmony with nature, ecological management of the meadows, the forest, the creek and promoting biodiversity (filtering of waste water in lagunes, pond, management of the orchard), are among our priorities.
The management of the farm is not our core business, I am a teacher and my partner works at the Museum of Prehistory. We have a small flock of sheep (a herding dog), a donkey and an orchard of 'high stem' fruit trees. In addition, we have an artistic activity, each of us are enthusiast clay sculptures and we bake our handcrafted creations in artisanal paper ovens.

De Tuin Van Heden is a permaculture project started 4 years ago. We are slowly planting and creating a food forest in the garden, with lots of fruit trees, berry bushes and lots of perennial plants. I love to grow herbs and my speciality is to grow strange and old vegetables. I live here with my two boys, Aida (6) and Wolf (2) and we live from the land as much as possible. Once a month there's a workday where people from all over can come and work in the garden together. We have a potluck together and in the evening we make music. We also give workshops. I am building a community where people can live here in tipis and yurts. This is a project I just started so in the year that comes we are building up the possiblity to do this here. We would love to open up the garden for wwoofers because I feel I have lots to share about herbs and permaculture.

Whost 45 (Louvain la Neuve)

This non for profit association was founded in 2012. The name of the association comes from the name of our first two donkeys, Paco and Galipette (GaliPac). Our headquarters are in Louvain-la-Neuve, a university town. We practice organic vegetable gardening for sale using animal power (donkeys and horse for plowing and working the land) on 1 hectare of land at Nethen in the Brabant Wallon province. We provide vegetables several times a week for buying groups in Brussels, the capital, close to us. In the longer term, our plan is that the farm becomes a cohousing project including some people with autism. At the moment we are mainly focused on the vegetable business though.

This small farm in the center of the village Floumont, is still in the 'setting up' phase. Recently arrived in the area, I would like to develop a goat farm and cheese making activity. So here I am with some goats enthusiastic to start my adventure. There is also a young donkey with us, who gradually will help with some of the farm chores (tillage, spreading the manure, bringing in the hay ....) but his education is still to be done. My preferance is to harvest hay manually, thus using a scythe. A small gardening project has begun so as to cover my vegetable needs. Having no machines or tractor, the work here is done mainly by hand, the true and artisanal way! Apart from animal care, the activities vary daily: renovation of the building, installation of production facilities, renovation of a bread oven, wood work for heating, processing of products for conservation, hobby beer production. ..and after the work is done, I like to relax by playing a few notes on my accordion ... hello musicians!

Yannick is an organic gardener for 20 years and Aline was introduced to organic farming recently. She is re-orienting her career after having worked in the social sector for 10 years. We grow vegetables on about 2 hectares including a surface of tunnels. We have a very diversified production and prioritize short circuit sales (selling directly to the clients, "GAS", local markets) .We are testing different cultivation methods and want to install aromatic herbs. We also (though we're out of time) plan to build a herb dryer. In the market gardening activity as well as in the new projects, there is a lot to learn and to test every day. We would be happy to share with those interested in our ideas. The work period is from May to November. At the moment we can only host wwoofers in a tent (we have the gear) but in case of necessity, there is always the opportunity to lodge in our home.
We have both followed nature guide training (NBC) and can help you discover the flora and fauna of our region. We also have "traveled alternatively", Yannick participating and organizing international projects (construction, organic farm, archeology ...) and Aline through the practice of wwoofing in France for a year (agro-ecological farm, viticulture, harvest and transformation of wild plants ...).

In everyday life, we pursue food self-sufficiency in a community spirit. To move towards this, our gardens inspired by permaculture (mounds, mulching, no-tillage ...) and the diversity of the nursery allow us to preserve (through lacto-fermentation, syrup, sterilization, brine ...) our food to meet our needs throughout the year.

My parents have an organic farm since 1980. For a long time, they practiced the breeding of dairy cows and processing milk (butter, yoghurt, cheese, ...). In recent years, as they approached the pension, they reduced their working hours and converted into livestock suckler cows for meat production (limousine).
For almost 5 years, I wanted to diversify the farm with market gardening. I started with a small space and have gradually enlargened. Trained in physical education, I have decided to take over the farm, which will focus primarily on market gardening. This will be done in 2 years. At the moment, I keep the livestock (thirty animals) in addition.

Whost 81 (Muizen 2812)

In 2014 we (Jelle and Roosje) bought the abandoned farm Baarbeekhoeve in Muizen, near the historic city of Mechelen. Now the farm has been restored, and we live there with our three daughters Febe, June and Lily.
On our fields we grow all kinds of vegetables that we sell in our two stores (one on the farm, one in the city of Antwerp), in markets and restaurants.
We (and farmer Andreas) especially need help with planting, weeding and harvesting. Also with the care of the animals (chicken and sheep) and we could use extra hands to help us prepare the vegetable orders.

Whost 82 (Manderfeld)

We are a family owned dairy farm in the 3rd generation. Working on the farm are father (65), and 2 daugthers (27 and 31). Organic for more than 15 years. We milk 100 cows and have a few chicken and pigs. Our philosophy is to produce in an autonomous and sustainable way. In summer our cows are 100 % grassfed. We also take part in different research projects and continuously try to improve our way of farming with the goal of raising healthy and long-living cows. Since the cows calf in the first months of the year, that's when we have the most work.

The farm is located a stone's throw away from Ath, a small town very active in the Transition movement.
I started farming in April 2015. This is an organic farm, with agroecological market gardening on a small surface and using animal power to cultivate (2 donkeys).
Cultivation activities are diversified (preparation of mounds with donkeys, sowing, weeding, harvesting, mushroom cultivation, orchard management).
On the sale side, the activities include (preparation of orders, welcoming members, etc.)
The layout of the farm; (mass stove, clay on the walls, accommodation for the wwoofer is in the attic.
There is a good agricultural dynamic in the region and it represents a rich potential for those who wish to develop such a project themselves.

Whost 88 (Presgaux)

The farm of Tchapia is a project of organic vegetable market gardening. We cultivate 0.7hectares of market gardening on a total surface of 4.8hectares.
The farm is located in a preserved natural area, 200m from the Ardennes forest. Being curious, I trained in different fields: agronomist, apiculture, herbalism, permaculture, etc. Installed in 2015, our project is essentially based on vegetable market gardening and we gradually integrate other activities: beekeeping, orchard, small livestock (sheep and hens) and visits to the farm.
We have, with my wife, traveled extensively and experienced wwoofing in New Zealand, Italy, France, Sweden, Scotland.
A music fan, I play the mandolin, harmonica and violin in several bands including Fracaban and the eyes of the tree (regular concerts on weekends). Very close to Chimay and Couvin.
Contact us by mail, we will send you a more detailed description of our activities on the farm.

Whost 91 (2275 Gierle)

Den Eik is een plekje in een dennenbos in de Kempen, dat met onze hulp stilaan biodivers wordt, een plekje met een liefdevolle, genezende missie, in verblijfsrecreatiezone. Om die missie gestalte te geven ontstaat Robur, rond en zo ecologisch mogelijk, met de sfeer van een hobbithuisje. Robur nodigt mensen uit tot rust te komen en op allerlei manieren innerlijke genezing te vinden.
Als vrijwilliger ben je deel van de groei van Robur, je creëert hem mee in de materie. Ieder die met liefde daaraan mee wil werken, is welkom!
Sinds februari 2017 is Robur op Den Eik een vzw!
"Als gij Den Eik niet met respect
En vriendschap kunt betreden,
Dan is het best dat gij gezwind
Terugkeert op uw schreden."
= respect voor de plek: je bent in de natuur ? hou het zo?
Geen luide muziek uit elektrisch versterkte apparatuur. Wél zelf muziek maken rond het centrale Vuurplekje!
Geen alcohol of andere drugs (matig gebruik daarvan schijnt vaak per definitie niet te kunnen, vandaar?). Laat je pure zelf naar buiten komen, met al zijn onzekerheid en onschuld?
Roken wordt sterk afgeraden op Den Eik. Probeer eens zonder! Voor wie de tabak echt niet kan laten, óók in de vorm van e-sigaretten: roken ALLEEN in de "Smoker's Space" (buiten onder een zeil).
Er is geen afvalophaling mogelijk. Doordat ikzelf mobiel leef kan ik mijn afval niet op de normale manier kwijt. Maak dus zo weinig mogelijk afval ? met dank, ook namens de planeet!
