Robur and The Oak need creative volunteers with (semi-)professional carpenter skills and a good feeling of the place's atmosphere. By helping to build Robur you are part of realizing a connecting, small-scale project that will invite burnt-out people to heal, artists/writers to be creative, and a lot more - surrounded with unique custom- and homemade fourniture in a round and spiraling ecological hobbitlike weekend-cabin in nature!Learn more

I spent around 2 weeks working at Robur and it was a great experience. I learned a lot about living in nature and working on construction. The place Is really unique and it's easy to feel comfortable with the group and the tasks. Marieke was an excellent host and always tried to help us to feel at home. The group of volunteers were also great people. I'll always remember about my experience there and hope that the project can be completed.
One of the best decisions of my trip! Robur is a place to disconnect with the busy world and reconnect with yourself and with nature. A wonderful place, full of wonderful people! This is for me a "must have" experience if you looking for a volunteering work! Marieke is very flexible, just tell her what you like, and she will try to make it the best place for you!
Thank you, Robur, thank you Marieke! Looking forward to see it complete and working! 💙
It was a great experience, The Oak is a beautiful and an spiritually It was a great experience, The Oak is a magical and spiritual place, run by a wonderful woman with an unrivaled spirit, I recommend it fervently.
Robur is an escape from the insanity of the modern world and is - as Marieke describes it - truly a healing place for all. You will undoubtedly leave without a lot of the burdens you first arrived with. As a cook, I've thoroughly enjoyed feeding some of the kindest people I've ever met in my life - friends I will no doubt keep and cherish for life. All of this is Marieke's unconditional gift to the world and to all who come Robur. Come with an open mind, ready to meet amazing people, ready to experience a life that is different from the one you came from, and you will love every minute here.
Robur is this weird and magical place when you get to unwind and forget about outside world, meet great people and most importantly help to build something amazing and beautiful. You also test yourself because living conditions are comfy but basic. And learning experience and interaction with Marike and her friends is unforgettable!
