We are an urban eco community, founded in 1992, and based in the City of Utrecht. Our community consists of 66 homes (46 rental properties and 20 homeowners) surrounding a communal courtyard. The homes are consciously diverse, ranging from shared living spaces to large-family independent houses.
Environmental awareness is an important issue in our community expressed through sustainable use of energy, water and materials.

Experience how we function as a low-key eco-community and our Dutch culture.
We will organise one evening with the theme of sustainable living where residents can meet residents while sharing a nice dinner.
The main job will be helping in the garden. Next to that, help with any relevant maintenance or building will be requested, for example building or restoring benches. A small part will consist of keeping the community center clean. We are open for 2-4 adults per stay.
Everyone speaks Dutch and English but there are many languages amongst our residents
This depends on which of the residents has availability at the moment of stay, but it will in any case be in one of the homes.
Possibly Workawayers will be asked to switch home after one week, to give others a chance to provide their hospitality as well.
During the time off, helpers can do whatever they please. The city center is only 15 minutes by bus, and if wanted, rides and outings can be arranged.
