    Good Host
  • Description


    We, 2 adults and our daughter of 16 (Waldorf school), live in the south of the Netherlands, 10 km from the town Breda. We have a house in our little forrest of a hectare since 2018. At the other side of the road we see often roes and nice birds and in our garden squirrels. The place is not well kept over the years, but it contains a (cold) swimming pool, a sauna (not functioning) and a tiny vegetable garden. We need help to let it function again. It is very quiet over here, so you have to like that if you want to be here. A nice lake is nearby our place where you can chill and swim.
    We really like to have expierenced helpers for the creation of a permaculture vegetable garden, the realisation of a bicycle shed, cleaning the forrest and digging a foothpath of sand. You are welcome, also in this time of the Corona-virus!
    We provide breakfast and dinner for 5 days a week (not at the weekends), sometimes lunch, and we eat biological food and vegetarian.

    We offer food and a sleeping place in exchange for 5 hours work a day, 5 days a week. We have a (very cold) swimming pool and there is a great lake nearby. It is really quiet here but there's a nice town (Breda) nearby (40 minutes with a bicycle). Also Belgium is nearby.

  • Help


    We need your help p.e. for cutting trees, sawing wood, making a foothpath, maintaining the swimming pool, the vegetable garden, cleaning the sauna, paint the house or help with the meals. We are inspired by Perma culture and want to learn more about it.
