  • Description


    We are an active family with a sustainable mindset, with 2 daughters aged 7 and 10 (1 with special needs) living in the countryside in the village of Kortenhoef (Amsterdam lakes area) in the Netherlands. We are starting up our living of the land project by vegetable growing and keeping chickens and sheep and are looking for experienced gardeners and diy-ers for a variety of small building and maintenance projects. Experienced wood-workers are also welcome for repairing the bridge

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are an active family with lots of space around the house, including a field with sheep as well as a few chickens, children to play with (and care for) a greenhouse where we just started a vegetable garden etc etc. You can go with our bikes and canoe to explore the beautiful surroundings and enjoy the cows and birds in the fields around you or visit places incl Amsterdam nearby (appr 20 km). We like cooking and love nice food and we can share meals sometimes (cooked by us or you), but also need structure and rest for our youngest daughter with special needs.
