The Experience

We are a small organic Agri business. We produce speciality heirloom tomato and other vegetable seeds and seedlings which are sold at farmers markets. We are also an organic Garden cooperative in which our goal is to create a socially responsible and community based project that feeds its members and connects them to where the food comes from. Help us with gardening/cleaning/housekeeping and have a great experience in the Swiss Alps!

It was a great experience , after the one we had before we did expect nothing.But luckily Liz and Ed are really amazing, it was a nice surprise and a relieve .The concept they have for the garden and the way the manage and organize the work it makes it really enjoyable you can learn a lot not only about gardening.Liz is very fun and easygoing so its easy to get along with ,she also cook amazing spicy food (of course we love spicy!!). The place is also really beautiful and the view amazing, we hope to have chance to go with them again

Liz and Ed are great hosts. Very welcoming they will show you everything around and give you tips to have a good time around.
The job is fun and varied(at least for me) between the garden, sometimes heavy, and the cleaning/tidying up or cooking/prepping the things from the garden.
I'd love to come back one day to spend more time hiking and enjoying nature around!

Liz is definitely a great host. We worked, biked, cooked and had dinner and fun together. She'll always do what's possible to do nice things with you. Interlaken is a beautiful place and as you have a bike at your disposal, you can enjoy your free time riding around. Buses are free for us too. I spent more time cleaning and tiding than learning about gardening. But I have to say that I absolutely learnt how to eat better in this experience. Much more vegetables and green stuff in my plate now :)

I´ve been traveling around many countries, most of them by worldpackers and I can say this has been my favorite so far.
Liz and Ed the are super cool, always making feel as part of their family.
The helping time is just in the morning some days going at the farm or cleaning the rooms, so easy and Liz always show you how is the best, easy and fastest way to do it, she is amazing the coolest and smiling lady that I´ve ever meet.
Where they live is perfect, in the middle of mountains you have a lake 3 min walking, you can use the bike and go around whatever you want.
Healthy and organic food.
