  • Description


    Hi there,
    We, Anita and Berend, live in the northern part of the Netherlands in an old school building, just outside the village of Appelscha. We are surrounded by two national parks: the Drents-Friese Wold and the Fochteloërveen.
    Our place is a beautiful and idylic and has an orchard, organic kitchen garden, labyrinth, pond, fire place, lawn etc. which, of course needs maintenance.
    We have a few outdoor building and DIY projects, like making a wooden platform with a roof etc. We live with a very friendly dog, Artos, who will supervise all work that has to be done, and Sylverster the cat, who is master of the property... Part from those guys, there are chickens and fish in the ponds to take care of.
