The Experience

Do you have experience with building with wood or other materials? We are an open-minded, experimental community in the heart of the Netherlands, and we are open for volunteers that would like to have some freedom in building and helping maintaining our eco-village facilities. We are a group of 13 people, living in trailers and tiny houses, and while you stay here you can also sleep in one of them. Come have this experience with us.

Without doubt my time at Stadsnomaden was an experience I'll never forget! While
the physical place itself is a beautiful haven bursting with creative energy, the people there are what makes it so special. From philosophical conversations over a beautiful meal made with love, to playing music and practicing yoga, to the good morning hugs and the good night laughter, to the meaningful connections and the warm atmosphere. It's beautiful! Also, the work here is mainly independent so be prepared to have some initiative to make a difference at the community.🤘🤘

I loved the golden mornings there, and the slow sunsets too.
I loved the pulsing creativity, the chaotic energy, the messy, philosophical conversations too.
Things will happen here; a phoenix will rise out of scrap wood, meals will be cooked, (beautiful meals too!), the kitchen will be a mess one minute, rain and mud everywhere, but it will all be alright, the sun will shine and the place will be alive and well again.
One can only learn to let go, be a little patient.
I came looking for characters and a life lived boldly and oddly. Stads Nomaden is that, and much more!
Truly, dank je!
