An ecovillage in Belgium?

Do you dream of living in a place with lots of green space around you, healthy air and food from your own garden and building a resilient future in connection with others?

So do we! We are already working on it and welcome new people to realise this dream together!

In the centre of the village Borlo in Haspengouw, we are renovating a big old farm, which provides the basis for a social, ecological and future-oriented project: Het Abtshof. We want to create an intergenerational cohousing community with about 12 units and several communal areas such as a large kitchen and common room, workshops, guest rooms,…
We have the ambition to live, work, share, grow and inspire together.
The project is a cooperative and includes, in addition to the buildings and a large barn, a piece of land of 2 ha with a garden, a swimming pond, pasture and agricultural land with a new orchard and vegetable cultivation.

It is a new project, input is welcome and there is further potential to develop activities that fit within the vision such as an agro-ecological agricultural project, packaging free shop, bakery, woodworking,…

Maybe something for you? Would you like to help to build up this unique project? Come and meet us at one of our activities – see calendar
