  • Description


    Buitenbant is a small organic dynamic farm, that is run by a couple of two women: Tineke and Herma. We multiply organic dynamic seeds on 3 hectares land that is situated on the formal bottom of the sea.

    Tineke was born on this farm, she took over the farm in 2008 and made it organic. We got together in the same year and started to work and live here together. Besides the farm we both work part-time in teacher-education.

    The garden is a beautiful place full of fruit- and nut trees and they are housing a lot of birds. The view is wide and sunsets are magnificent here. We have 3 lovely cats and our chicken wander around every day.

    We believe that respectful food growing/collecting is nourishing for the soul and body. We aim to live in harmony with the beautiful mother earth that is providing us with everything we need.

    Our motto is to create a world that works for everyone out of love, care and cooperation. We are interested in sharing our insights – and we want to learn from people that come into our lives. We appreciate an open attitude and like to express our thoughts and feelings in an atmosphere of open communication and constructive dialogue.

    The work we offer is mostly weeding, maintenance and work in the (kitchen)garden.

    We ask 25 hours work a week in exchange of board and lodging. We prefer a minimum stay of 2 weeks. We prefer non-smokers. No drugs. We provide healthy vegetarian, mostly organic food.

    We ask you to have your own health insurance and show it to us so we can copy it. We will also make a copy of your ID.
