  • Description

    Hi there! Thanks for reading!
    My name is Robbie and I'm from the Netherlands. I've been travelling every now and then and like to meet new and interesting people through platforms like and helpx. After traveling around Australia a couple of years ago I'm now keen to discover more places in and around Europe.

    I am an experienced woodworker, cabinet maker, designer, project manager and 3D drawing expert. Those are my primary occupations at home. Next to that I love to make music, play the guitar, like to do some busking every now and then. I enjoy hobby's like beekeeping, mycology, bushcraft, studying and reading about those subjects. I like to experiment with different diets, lots of interest in health and nutrition. I am also very into permaculture, self sustainable communities and would love to learn about the dynamics of forming an off-grid community that wants to live & work with nature, instead of on top of it.

    My goal in the future is to be able to lower my environmental footprint as much as possible and through permaculture support an abundance of biodiversity in my immediate surroundings. So currently I'm trying to find my path to build an eco-friendly house amidst a community of like-minded people and work together to build more sustainable way of living.

    If you are interested in my activities you can find a couple of blogs on this forum where I'm participating with sharing knowledge online of forming a community like this.
