At a ten minutes busride away from the centre of town, you find my Lovli neighbourhood in'Schalkwijk'. While you think you entered an area dominated by appartment buildings, you will be surprised by the peace and quiet of the green environment including a mix of organic horticulture, apiculture and little stores. I love to show you around and depending on the weather, have a picknick on the way or alternatively at my place.

From Haarlem Central Station or the town centre we travel together to my neighbourhood by bus.
After picking up some food in the local organic store Santé, run by professionals, people with limitations and volunteers, we walk to 'Vrij Waterland' an educational organic horticulture. It is a lovely green oasis of peace and quiet to dwell around and relax. The little store sells veggies and fruit, harvested from the land. Furthermore we visit the apiculture 'de werkbij' and their store nearby. If appreciated we can visit the lovli garden I share with friends and hang out there. We walk through the parc or along the river Spaarne, sawmill the Unicorn, back to the busstop. At any point we can shorten or extend the tour to your liking.
There is a lot I love to share about my neighbourhood and I heartily invite you experience it with me!
