Cause of some problems with the forwarding of mails and the website structure I decided to move to a concurrent of helpx. So I don't see your requests quick anymore. I am sorry for my late or not replies.

Works to be done, mainly gardening, some DIY, some sewing, some artistic or creative projects.

In mid 2014 I bought a terrific place only 10 km away from Eindhoven in the midst of a village. This place is gonna be a beautiful place where people can take indoor and outdoor yoga lessons overlooking the fields. There's gonna be a garden for fruits and vegetables and herbs, a small campground for a couple of tents and two bedrooms for people who wanna sleep indoors. But before this is reality, a lot of work needs to be done! Ooh and I got a new plan, a nice wooden house in the midst of the garden...

On the 19th of September I opened up the studio for the public. But it is never finished when you want all details to be good!
And you can follow some yoga classes when you are here, if you feel like it.

A lot of helpx-helpers arrived since may 2014 and helped a lot with the garden and the (de)construction of the yogastudio. We constructed a raised bed for some vegetables, broke down an ugly carport to create some space for an entrance.
In the yogastudio we got the old floor out and even some walls. We have prepared the floor for a nice and warm new floor. The piping has been redone and now the floor heating has been installed. Besides that, gardening and more gardening... We emptied a huge pond and filled it with soil again. Created a small camping area. A new outside table has been made. Grass has sown and is growing.

The jobs vary from gardening, little construction, repairs, painting, artistic things, cleaning up after and lots more...
So if there are some handy people or green finger persons around in the area, feel welcome to make it nice and beautiful!
I started a blog thing, see link above.
so you can see more pictures and get an idea of the place.

For the volunteers there are 2 bedrooms, shared bathroom and kitchen and a big living room and a camping area. If you come alone, you might end up sharing your bedroom. So check before if that is a problem for you. There are also five not the best but working bikes If you wanna check out the area. It's a 5 minute walk to the centre of the village with all kinds of shops. And About 30 min bike ride from Eindhoven or 15 min with bus.

I learned that I can expect up to 5 hours work a day from you. And you can expect to have a bed (with linnen) and 3 meals a day. You can have 1-2 days in the week off, and then you mind your own meals.
Breakfast between 8.00 - 10.00
Lunch between 12.00 - 13.00
dinner between 18.00 - 19.00

Working times are between 9.00 and 17.00. But if you know what and how to do things these are flexible.

Please let me know if your plans change! The no-show rate is now 1 out of 6. Not so much that I have work waiting for you, but I don't like to say no to other travellers because I am full with bookings that don't show up..

oh yeah, for all weed loving helpx-helpers if you are a heavy weed-smoker and start the day with a joint; please find yourself another host...
