  • Description

    Description

    I live in an old farmhouse (1850) with a cat and a dog. My 2 sons have left to go study in Leiden and Groningen. I love the quietness of the countryside. I also like to build and work on the house and garden. I try to do that in a sustainable way, as much as possible. I like to work en be with people who also want to live simple, of the grid ecological etc. Allthough it's a crazy world, we can still contribute to the good things that are also there.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It' s an agricultural area in the north east of the netherlands, next to a nature protected area. Not many people here and little corona. .. Groningen is an 900 years old university city, 50 km from here. At the moment there are not many possibilities for exchange, because of corona, but we can always look for what still is possible. I have done a lot of building projects and can help people with techniques. And I can learn from other people.
