Community building, self-sufficiency and dancing/movement are my personal interests. I look forward to a physical place where these can come together and we can work together in living from the ground up and acting from the heart.
I see myself working in the food forest and everything that flows from it. But my interests also lie in bringing different elements together. I also like to see the whole thing and it usually comes naturally.
Background in 5 elements, movement, massage and teaching assistant. Pulled out in recent years and was allowed to gain experience in social gardens and permaculture.
At a young age I dreamed of huge hands that protected the earth and freed it from environmental pollution. In my mind I flew over lush countryside with vast forests and clear, clean, flowing water.
I really want to contribute to a clean, healthier earth for our children.
“I like nothing better than planting trees and cutting herbs for even more
biodiversity in our green environment. I prefer to make beautiful products that support our health in a tailor-made way.”
At the Floraya circle I help to grow, harvest and process medicinal herbs as a link in the entire chain from plant to oil. I feel completely at home in this region. For Aya you can contact me with anything with a € sign, from my role as treasurer.
CEO ‘In de koperen ketel‘ distillery workshop in Gilze NB, author of ‘Lavender’ distillery book: practical manual’ and ‘Larch, Spar and Scots Pine: conifers with a medicinal effect’, employee (volunteer) Social TRade Organization socialtrade.nl, transition advisor/trainer community building.
It feels to me that since my childhood on the farm and in nature, this society, this boat drifts further and further away from the mainland, nature. I would like to make the movement back to living with and in nature. For myself and also for the children after me.
I am in an environment that invites happiness, contact, abundance, playfulness and wonder.

AyA is a life goal. Leaving a better world for my daughter is what motivates me the most. When I am in nature, eating healthy and exercising I feel best. But there is less and less nature and harmony is hard to find in modern cities. Changing this together is worth more than gold.
