Dear Max,

following your exchanges on  European Bales,for many years, and met in in
Belgium some yerars ago,  I remember that you are the one who initiated

We here in Holland are approaching summer, and two of our dedicated people
would like to visit other eco-villages or similar initiatives in Europe to
broaden their scope, and have a change of perspective and horizon.

I wonder if you will be happy to receive Edward and Anne Marie for around 2
weeks, during august . They have no money to spend, but Edward has
experience in organising workshops and general management  in our
Initiative here, besides working for Doctors without borders etc. So they
know what to do when work needs to be done.

Thank you for considering this ,

Warm greetings

Rolf Grooten
Project Manager Ecodorp Brabant

> Our problem is naturally to make enough money to pay you, however I just

> Disadvantage is that you'll have to apply next week: Deadline is 31st of
