De Helleborus is located in the North of Netherlands on 1 hectare in the outskirts of Groningen. We are an ecohostel, a beginning permaculture center and food forest with accommodations in the house and outdoors. The farm is divided in different areas where we facilitate a variety of events and workshops for enthusiasts (entrepreneurs) in the field of sustainability and community building.
De Helleborus is still growing and we are looking for helping hands to create facilities to bring the farm to its full potential!
We have space for max 6 volunteers at the same time. We are looking for enthusiastic and assertive people who like working hard and enjoy being surrounded by a diverse and inspiring bunch of people who come and go everyday.
There are three areas where you can help us out: hospitality, gardening and building. Because we are still developing, it is important that you are comfortable with a dynamic work environment. We work fast and things can change quickly. We try to present you with projects and tasks that are ready to go, with a design and all the necessary materials, to provide as much clarity as possible. Because of the high pace, we prefer it if you already have some skills and experience in the field you're applying for. We've learned that it makes for the best match in this stage of growth that we're in.
We will offer you a beautiful and inspiring place to stay, where we believe in creating a better world for everyone. After a day of hard work we love to gather around one of the many fireplaces in the evening and have dinner together.
We require a minimum stay of 3 weeks. After the first week, we will create a moment for feedback and check if everything is going to work out well for both of us. When you're staying with us, we expect that you keep a work week of 5 days a week, 6 hours a day. We make about double the hours, so if you're enjoying yourself, feel free to join us :)
Place to sleep (shared room with other volunteers), you can also bring your own tent.
