    Dear Workawayers, welcome to our profile.

    We are a small community (3-4 residents and 1-2 part-timers each with their own living space and life).
    Living in a monumental farm from the 19th century, a retreat centre with a few separate 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. Living in connection with each other. Simple and conscious life: minimising and separating waste, environmental friendly, reusing materials, own vegetable garden, etc. Responsibility and modesty. Sharing circles: how we feel, personally and in daily activities, daily meeting moments for practical matters and almost daily meditation-moments.
    We 'd like to get some help around the house and in the garden.


    -We ask for a minimum stay of 4 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.
    -We are a small community, we cook and eat often individually, so we like volunteers who can also take care of themselves, regarding food. We provide good ingredients.
    -We like to know how you are doing (mentally and physically) and ask you to be communicative, f.e. if you have doubts or when you do not understand or know something, please contact us.
    -Your help is welcome in our community: small handicraft, gardening, cleaning, cooking, artproject ...

    Curious about us? Send us a message with your motivation and skills.

    Frits, Henk and Maaike

    You can practise and learn about organic gardening, healthy (vegan) food, sometimes about creative art or building projects with recycled materials.
    Living in a small community and opening up to sharing your thoughts and feelings; learning about awareness, personal development.
    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 ;-)
