    Description

    We (a family with two kids) live in a little farm,in a woody environment, 10km away from shops etc. We have an organic (permacultuur) garden. We try to live as much as possible 'selfsuporting' and want to have enough vegetables and fruit for living and selling. So we planted many (fruit) trees.
    We live with chickens, 3 cats and 7 poneys (haflingers),
    We have a little nature camping, with a holiday house, wooden caravan etc...
    Here we use only chemical free soap, because we use the water afterwarts ,so this we expect also from you when you stay with us.

    Want help for :
    -garden.
    -On the land, for example take wood out of our 'forest'.
    -Building,in and around the house., but we have more plans...
    -Horses; We play with them according natural-horsemanship (pat parelli, monty roberts, emiel voest).And we need help with taking away the horse excrement from the field.
    -When you have experience to build on a stone wood oven?, we are bussy with one , a fin-oven.
    -We have still lots of plans and work! to much for writing them all

    In return you can;
    - stay in a caravan,If you prefer you can bring your own tent/ caravan/ camper.
    -Eat with us (if you like cooking you can (help) cooking. We are vegetarian/ vegan, we have our own eggs now.
    You can enjoy the horses.(when you know how to do, you can take them out for a trip (in the forest).
    -You can make really nice walks from here. (our house is next to an walking route.
    -We have some bicycles, you can use
    -In the summer you can take a swim in the river nearby
    We speake (the best)dutch, france and english.(But with hands and feet we can talk with anyone!)
