About

We have a 2 ha vegetable and fruitgarden working with Permaculture and experimenting with practical ways to provide vegetables, herbs and fruit for our 140 members. They come to the garden and harvest themselves. We prepare, plant and tend the plants.

This is our fourth season, third year as a CSA. Parts of the soil where we have worked for four years have improved a lot, other parts are still 'under construction' of the underground workforce...

We are a family with three children (11, 9 and 7 years old). We live in an over 100 year old Frisian farmhouse in a small village at 5km of the regional town of Sneek. It is a beautifull area with lots of lakes and cannels. You can go around by bike.. Michel and I are both academics that chose to put our energy where our mouth is. :-)

We are active in the local strive to improve consumption and production of local organic food. We give classes to others that want to start a garden like ours. And we have set up a food-coöperative with our members to enable them (and us) to buy other locally produced food along with our vegetables and fruit.

We don't have the answer to worlds food problem, but we are most willing to share our experience and thoughts with you. And hear about your experience and ideas.

We found out that our gardens in this stage meens a lot of work, so you are most welcome to come over and experience what it means to work on an organic farm. :-)
This fall the work consists of planting the last vegetables, cutting the small fruit and fruittrees, chopping wood, etc.

We will host you in a guestroom in our house..
