The farmers in the Wieringermeer receive help from students and pupils for the harvesting of potatoes. The help is organised by the Nederlandse Jeugdgemeenschap (Dutch Youth Community) in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture. SHOTS: - young people are busy digging out the potatoes by hand in the countryside; the potatoes are put in crates; the crates are taken away by horse and cart; - at the end of the day a long column of youth leaves the field; they ride back to their camps near the farms by lorry or by a bus(?); - the boys swim outside; - the girls splash or spray eachother near a tub with water; - a group of girls sings near or on top of a haystack; two girls accompany them on guitar.
