    Dear travelers,

    We are working very passionate to become a nice place. we offer you a temporary home deep in the forest with all modern comfort you want. In this process there is lots of work to do and we sincerely need responsible, pro active people and also skillful people who are not dirty of moving things forward.

    If you consider yourself as such, feel free to apply for a position as short or long term volunteer.

    As exchange for sharing with you our dream we demand from you to be responsible for the generoul outlook of the place, the animals and the garden. In the meantime we are happy to teach you anything you dont know yet and wish to give you the knowledge you need.

    The animals
    We have goats, but only in the summer and in spring time. chickens and a peacock all year.
    Three goats needs to be milked twice a day, their water being refreshed and being sure they get enough food. They spend most of theit daytime in absolute freedom, so you will enjoy beautiful walks with them and you just have to be sure they have water to drink and that they dont eat our flowers on the terrace and the nearby vegatables. The chikens needs their water refreshed daily and their shelter being cleaned.

    - The garden
    Its the first year of having established a garden. You will be responsible for watering, weeding, seeding, translplanting, harvesing and processing the harvest.

    Producing and foraging
    We are making cheese, yoghurt, compotes, marmelades, sirups, iceteas and collect seasonal produce from the forest
    If you dont have knowledge in those fields, you will learn all of it here. We also got books that might be very helpful in this regard.

    Making labels for products we/you make (elderberryflower sirup, icetea, dried pineshoots, dried elderberryflower, milk, yoghurt,..Making murals, signs in the garden, educational leaflets, video's

    - Maintaining and developing the location
    Keeping the terrace clean, be welcoming to guests, cutting grass, mapping out hiking trails, writing blogposts, adding pictures on social media, etc..

    - Contructions
    We have several constructions in the planning
    - Horse staple
    - Benches from wood.....

    We respect teamwork and teaching eachother skills that others may not have or like to share.

    In your other freetime we invite you to:
    - delve into nature > there are amazing trails around where you are immersed in magical nature. We can guide you or you can follow your own footsteps or use on of our bicycles (if you are careful)

    If you like to cook, feel free to take part and/or suggest something you like to prepare
