  • Description

    Description

    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.

    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.

    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.
