In 2019, I came across a magnificent Protected heritage building of 100y old that has been empty and abandoned Since 30y. I was immediately in love and quit my job to renovate it and restore it back to its grandeur of a century ago. It was built to be a cafe, restaurant, performance art center, hotel - which I want to bring back expanded with workcenters for pottery, weaving, woodcraft, and breadovens. The atmosphere should breathe health, inclusion, music, crafts, and the center should be helping people in need and be accessible for people without money as well.
Many people share this dream with me, and want to help bring this building back to life volunteering for renovation or supporting the events created to start a community linked to this project.
We organised many events in 2021 already: 3 live concerts, a nostalgic fancy fair, World War 2 re-enactment, a music festival. In 2022 we plan the same, and will add middle ages re-enactment and an ancient crafts weekend.
We would also love YOU to join our team!

Many aspects of the renovation of protected heritage come into play here - many skills can be learned and practiced. We will prepare the building first, and turn it into a community center vibrant of music, nature, health and care for others - far away from the hastiness of profit focussed society.
So also mental growth though introspection and altruïsme are part of the journey.
All help is welcome: cleaning up the building or the garden, sanding, repairing, wood construction, plumming, painting, but also research on the internet for materials, supporting fund raising events,...

all accomodation in place - except for heating (great open fire place though).
We even have a piano and a chill room for the workawayers with games and table tennis.
The area is very green and fantastic for hiking, biking, sailing, etc. Belgium is centrally located and a good stop over during travel though Europe.
We prepared a complete floor to host up to 7 workawayers. Most of the time there are 4 or 5 there at the same time having a good time together, also during free time. The atmosphere is fantastic, be assured you will have a fun learning experience on top of adding value to the World!
