The country estate the Veldzichthoeve is situated in the rural surroundings of the Ommerschans region. With its four hectares of grounds surrounded by farmland and woods, this is a healing environment. For Veldzicht’s patients it is the perfect place in which to work and learn.

At the Veldzichthoeve patients work in the candle-making workshop and the shop selling local products from the estate, and also look after the animals. Goats and chickens can be found on the farm, while in the adjacent kitchen gardens patients experiment with fruit and vegetable cultivation.

Those capable of tackling something a little more challenging can get involved in forestry and timber harvesting. The Veldzichthoeve has access to a range of tools and equipment to assist with this tough work and patients follow special courses and training programmes so they are qualified to use these machines. De Hoeve offers a pleasant learning and working environment for all patients.
