    Description

    Dear Workawayers, welcome to our profile.

    ON THE MOMENT WE CAN REALY USE VOLUNTEERS WHO CAN HELP US WITH SOME NICE CONSTRUCTION AND RENOVATION PROJECTS.

    We are with three individual people living on a monumental farm from the 19th century. The farm is located in the east part of Holland, near the german border. With an amazing lush area and a really nice lake to swim within 3 km distance.

    Besides this we have a nice retreat centre with apartments for people who want individual retreats in nature, silence and reflection, and consciousness as the leading theme.

    Some words about the place:
    sustainable, quietness, special atmosphere, space, nature, retreats, awareness, openness, free thinking, taking care.....

    Poultry, a dog and a cat running free, a vegetable garden, farmlands, forest and natural beauty surrounds the farm, with a nice swimming lake nearby.

    We offer varied activities for volunteers, but above all an open and direct communication with a hands on mentality.
    We 'd like to get some help around the house and in the garden.

    ------------------------------------------

    -We ask for a minimum stay of 3 weeks, the first week to be used to find out if we match. If things work out well we may like to have you for a longer time, if possible.

    -Your help is also welcome in our small community: handicraft, gardening, cleaning, cooking, artprojects ...

    Curious about us? Send us a message with your motivation and skills and preferable with your phonenumber and email so we can speak to eachother.

    Frits, Henk and Doranne

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can practise and learn about organic gardening, healthy (vegan) food, sometimes about creative art or building projects with recycled materials.

    There are nice villages nearby (Lochem, Borculo), and also cities to visit (Enschede f.e. and beautiful old cities like Zutphen and Deventer). We regularly go for a morning swim in the lake nearby.
    You can walk with a resident and the dog for sharing thoughts and ideas.
    There are bikes to borrow and explore the area.
    Once or twice a week we have a shared meal.
    Henk loves to play a game (cards) in the evening or to go to the café for a soccermatch.
    Campfire on the fireplace outside (with your live music ;-)).
    Regularly you can share meditationmoments.

    We are curious what cultural exchange you bring ;-)
