    We are a very special nature space WITHIN the Amsterdam city limits.

    Our mission is to promote awareness and education of regenerative living, self-sufficiency and nature.

    FEB- JUNE: We look for people with REAL skills in building (mainly carpentry and/or plumbing) to help build an outdoor kitchen and a natural playground. In these months we also look for help with gardening and food growing, and with very good organizational skills to help us with our storage.
    We also welcome researchers in sustainability and regenerative living.

    JULY-AUG: We accept experienced camp counselors for kids summer camp.

    *️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️We look for people that are pro-active and do not need to be told all the time what to do. For this reason we look mostly for experienced and not too young people.*️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️

    Please tell us your motivation and experience in the message.
    Looking forward to meeting you.
