Boskanter is an educational non-profit that wants to inspire people to become less dependent on fossil fuels by taking life into their own hands. We do this with a number of ecological projects, such as the baking and selling of sourdough bread, and by creating a place where we can share knowledge through workshops and activities. All this is made possible by volunteers that work in exchange for bed & board.

Cornerstones of Boskanter

Sourdough Bread

One of Boskanter’s ecological projects is the baking and selling of artisanal sourdough bread:

  • baked in a wood-fired masonry oven
  • with local and/or biological ingredients
  • sold from our little bakery in Opbrakel
  • or delivered closer to you via the Voedselteams.


There are often activities and small events at Boskanter. Like the quarterly Repair Café, at which we fix each other’s broken things with the help of experts.

And Pizzeria Boskanter, every first Friday of the month, when our masonry oven takes on the role of pizza oven and Boskanter turns into a pizzeria for the evening. An occasion for locals to meet and learn about Boskanter and our way of life while enjoying delicious pizza.


Boskanter shares her knowledge through workshops.

Interested in learning how to:

Boskanter’s workshops can often take place here or at your own home. And others can also host workshops at Boskanter.


Boskanter exists through the valuable work of volunteers, who receive bed & board in return. This makes it a great place to meet  and get to know new people from a range of cultures, and practice different languages. Apart from this you can learn a lot from simply working alongside others on a multitude of varying projects.
