What is “De Grote Eik” (the big oak)?
We are Family the big oak and we live in a beautiful place in the municipality of Zutendaal in Belgium (between Genk en Maastricht). We are a community of people and animals that live in unity and in connection with the nature and ourselves. A community that is inspired to live in a sustainable and self-sufficiency. By doing this we create a healthy future for us and for the next generations. A community where you can come to yourself.
