We are Leonard (62) and Ariane (55), we live in a farmhouse in the Eastern part of the Netherlands. We are slowly transforming the farmhouse in a meditation and yoga place for others to enjoy and/or find inner peace, as well as a community.
We are looking for helping hands, especially gardening and DIY. Please scroll down to ‘Help’ to see which projects we have at the moment.
Both Leonard and Ariane are interested in mindfulness, yoga, meditation, nature, organic gardening, cooking, reading, traveling. We don't smoke, we eat healthy (vegetarian) and we are quite 'hands on'. We love living in a small community, you will be part of the community, which includes the building team on the site, other volunteers, teenagers who come help, friends or family who come visit. We will at times take you out on trips to show you more of the surroundings.
We would like you to be part of our lifestyle. If you like to spend many hours behind Netflix, eating fast food and smoke, we recommend you to look for another project. We enjoy having you around, sharing our premises with you, we enjoy hearing your stories.
Please also do not apply if you attend business school and need international work experience for your degree, we need 'hands on people' for now.

You will have your own simple bedroom and shared bathroom; if there are two work awayers, you might share bedroom. It's also possible you sleep in a comfortable tent in the lawn, with a toilet and shower nearby.
We share the washing machine, kitchen, dining and living areas. You will have a space in the fridge. We provide two vegetarian meals (lunch and dinner) when you are staying with us. Breakfast you can find in the fridge for yourself to make. You can relax in our garden. You can swim in our pool. You can grab a bike and go for bike trips.
Beware that we are renovating our premises, so there will be some dust, some noise and some improvisation. There will be construction people around.
In the weekends we tend to go to Amsterdam ourselves. You can stay in the house or go on an adventure yourself.
The house is surrounded by farmlands and some woods, it’s a quiet place in the countryside. We have bikes you can borrow to explore the surroundings. There is a charming city called Deventer nearby, which is a 30 minute bus drive. Deventer has a lot to offer, such as a rich history, unique shops and lovely cafes. If you would like to explore more of the Netherlands (or Germany), you can easily catch a train from Deventer. It takes 1:15h to Amsterdam and 1:10 h to Utrecht.
