    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The actual cohousing community counts 30 people of different age and origin. We speak Dutch, English, French, Spanish, Polish, German and Arabic. Every decision we take in consensus.
    Staying and working with us gives you the opportunity to learn about the different applications of ecological construction materials.
    You share a little kitchen and dining room with 2 other work-a-wayers and 2 young residents : a very intresting and cosy corner.

  • Help


    We are looking for people that can assist in the construction help : finishing work with clay, landscaping, woodconstructions, painting, creating garden paths, ... But we are also looking for people that are willing to make a fine piece of art in a sustainable way.
    The actual challenge is : landscaping our garden with paths, stones and clay, using ecological techniques.
