We live on a small peace of land in Zeeland, in the South-West of Holland. There I, Maria, work as a Naturopath and I am growing the herbs I work with on our land and as a herbalist I make medicinal preparations. My husband Rene is building a workshop in which he is producing all kinds of useful products from recycled materials. We also grow our own vegetables in an organic and permaculture way. And our property is full of nut and fruittrees, and willows as firewood. We have a small gardentemple and a cabin, for meditation and dharma-practice. We prefer to have guests and co-workers that can stay for a minimum of 4 weeks. The accomodation is very basic, a caravan without runningwater and electicity and without internetacces. If you still want to come, we know you are really motivatied!! Welcome
