  • Description


    Welcome to our warm family and permaculture farm in a beautiful and quiet natural scenery! Come and have an unforgettable experience!


    At the moment we have a vacancy for a volunteer to stay at our farm for longterm. As volunteer your accommodation is a lovely nature retreat stay in a small tinyhouse in the middle of the permaculture garden (see picture). Experience off grid life and permaculture. We homeschool by social permaculture. Your job will be to work with the kids of 10 and 12 years old and to create new activities and do these with the children.

    We welcome volunteers who recognize themselves in the profile of being a nature lover in the age between 18 and around 35 years. Who enjoys back to basic experience, outdoor life and camping. With enthusiasm, energy and ideas to spend the day with 2 teenagers and create nice acitivities with them. Maybe you play an instrument or you have a creative hobby to share?

    This is a small organic family farm with animals and a permaculture garden. On the farm we care for people or childen with special needs. And we homeschool our own children by the principles of natural learning and social permaculture.

    Average amount of hours a day is 5 hours five days a week. Together we enjoy meals now and then and some activities like yoga and music making. You can also cycle or walk around the beautiful countryside.

    We are a warm family, but we have a severely chronically ill family member. This makes that our family is very busy, so you must really be able to work and live independently. The evenings we take our rest as a family, so you will spend these on your own.

    Do you like children, nature, organic living and (social) permaculture? And are you an independent worker and able to take good care of yourself with hands-on mentality? Then maybe we have a match! If you mention the word "chocolate pie" in your message to us, we know you have completely read our profile. Welcome to introduce yourself.

    We ask for no smoking, no drugs and no alcohol please.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our children are very willing to exchange (music, culture, yoga,...). We live a simple life in a quiet area in nature. We do our daily tasks and cherish the quietness around here. You will be able to see how our children are homeschooled by natural learning and you can feel part of a family community on a farm. Apart from the work with the children and outside, it may also be a nature retreat for you here.
