Sustainability & Regeneration

We only have one earth, let's take care of her

We're an eco-project with a vision for the land. Our aim is to achieve full self-sufficiency within five years. Currently, we're working on creating a food forest and vegetable gardens. These will not only provide us with food but also cater to our guests in this beautiful Natura 2000 environment. We're dedicated to carefully preserving and nurturing this special place. We therefore use Kangen Water and organise workshops to share our knowledge. 


Kangen Water

Kangen means "return to origin" in Japanese. We'd like to call it "the best kept secret", and want the world to know about the benefits. That's why, when you arrive you get served a bottle of this water. 

Drinking water
Kangen Water is alkalized and has gone through an electrical change called elektrolysis. The electrolysis have been shocking the water to separate the molecules of the water, making them smaller to hydrate us on a more cellular level and also leaving more antioxidants. Kangen Water has the pH from 8.5 to 9.5. 

  • Ionized & alkalized
  • Negative ORP and therefore anti-ageing
  • pH from 8.5 - 9.5 with all different usages 

Cleaning purposes
Cleaning products are full with chemicals and an environmental disaster. We therefore have made the switch to a natural way of cleaning with Kangen Water

  • High environmental impact 
  • No more chemicals needed
  • 2.5 pH is a strong desinfectant and used in hospitals 
  • 6.0 pH beauty water can be used for things as make-up remover and hair conditioner 
  • 11.5 pH is a strong degreezer and can be used to clean your stove or wash off pesticides (see picture) 

Workshops and collaboration

Marjolein has been passionate about sustainability and nature for as long as she can remember. She previously worked as a sustainability manager and is determined to make this world a better place. This is one of the reasons she started living in the dragon forest 7 years ago and is building a sustainable and self-suffiencient living. 

Melissa spent three years traveling and working in various volunteering roles. During this time, she completed a 6-month permaculture internship, significantly expanding her knowledge of sustainability and self-sufficiency. 

Our workshops aim to unite people and foster enjoyment. We don't hold on to a strict schedule; instead, it's an invitation to join us on our land and become a part of our daily lives. Feel free to bring your specific questions, and we'll be happy to share our insights with you. Together we work towards more sustainability. 

If you're interested in collaborating with us and share the same values, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We'd love to join forces.
