    Dear Workawayers, welcome to our profile.


    For volunteers who come to visit large cities, for example Amsterdam or Rotterdam, it is not wise to choose us. Our farm is located off the beaten track in the middle of a beautiful and peaceful landscape, next to a small village. The first supermarket is 4 km away, we always have a bicycle to borrow :-).
    We are looking for volunteers who are responsible and who can empathize with our spiritual farm, age is not important. It is an old farmhouse from 1800, you get your own bedroom and the kitchen, bathroom and living room you share, sometimes with other volunteers and with Henk (one of the residents). Frits lives 30 km away (he is a partime resident), but is on the farm about 4 to 5 days a weeky. From the beginning of november '23 there are two more residents Jack and wilna. The first point of contact is Jack (sometimes Henk) and Frits keeps the overview.

    With regard to the food, all basic ingredients are standard in the house (pasta, rice, potatoes, herbs etc etc) we also give each volunteer a budget to buy his/her own groceries (so you don't pay for that yourself!), everyone eats differently and we think it is much nicer to be able to choose your own food. Sometimes we eat together, but usually you cook for yourself, that way you also determine your own times. You might also like to cook for us ;-) and we will also cook for you sometime...

    The farm is located in the east part of Holland, near the german border. With an amazing lush area and a really nice lake to swim within 3 km distance.

    Besides this we have a nice retreat centre with apartments for people who want individual retreats in nature, silence and reflection, and consciousness as the leading theme.

    Some words about the place:
    sustainable, quietness, special atmosphere, space, nature, retreats, awareness, openness, free thinking, taking care.....

    Poultry, a dog and a cat running free, a vegetable garden, farmlands, forest and natural beauty surrounds the farm, with a nice swimming lake nearby.

    We offer varied activities for volunteers, but above all an open and direct communication with a hands on mentality.
    We 'd like to get some help around the house and in the garden.


    -We ask for a minimum stay of 3 weeks, the first week to be used to find out if we match. If things work out well we may like to have you for a longer time, if possible.

    -What we find most important is openness and honesty. Share how you feel and what you are doing. Consciousness and responsibility are also part of our important principles. Be observant with an eye for the small. Clean up your mess, close doors and windows, turn off the lights and don't walk in with dirty shoes. Logical habits for all of us, but certainly not for everyone :-).

    Curious about us? Send us a message with your motivation and skills and preferable with your phonenumber and email so we can speak to eachother.

    Frits. (team: Henk, Wilna and Jack)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You can practise and learn about organic gardening, healthy (vegan) food, sometimes about creative art or building projects with recycled materials.

    There are nice villages nearby (Lochem, Borculo), and also cities to visit (Enschede f.e. and beautiful old cities like Zutphen and Deventer). We regularly go for a morning swim in the lake nearby.
    You can walk with a resident and the dog for sharing thoughts and ideas.
    There are bikes to borrow and explore the area.
    Once or twice a week we have a shared meal.
    Henk loves to play a game (cards) in the evening or to go to the café for a soccermatch.
    Campfire on the fireplace outside (with your live music ;-)).
    Regularly you can share meditationmoments.

    We are curious what cultural exchange you bring ;-)
