Various volunteers

Did you know that the Hofje of Mrs. van Aerden was founded to provide shelter for poor widows in the ten houses that the Hofje has? After all, there were no social services in the 18th century. Nowadays, the Hofje can no longer be funded from Mrs Van Aerden's estate, but must generate its own income. The Hofje also receives no subsidies; the monument runs entirely on volunteers. At the moment, the regents, together with the volunteers and other experts, are thinking about the future of the Hofje and its museum value. Together they look for a good interpretation of the spaces and the meaning of the Hofje for Leerdam, Vijfheerenlanden, tourists, heritage enthusiasts and tenants. As a volunteer you are involved and part of this transition! The Hofje could use more volunteers! Below are the positions where you would be of significance: 1. Volunteer in the garden or shop A beautiful space has been rented, next to the Hofje in Kerkstraat, where visitors are received and products from the utility garden, which consists of the vegetable garden, herb garden and orchard, are sold. Postcards, juices, oils and much more are also offered. A cup of coffee or tea can be served to the visitor. This shop will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon. The same opening hours also apply to the beautiful outdoor garden with special flowers, herbs, trees and forgotten vegetables. But in the future we would like to aim to open our doors five days a week. Volunteers are being sought who tell “the story”, but also volunteers who want to sell products and/or serve coffee/tea. We are also looking for a volunteer who wants to coordinate all these activities and the volunteers themselves. Anyone who wants could help and dedicate an average of one afternoon a week to this beautiful Hofje aan de Linge with its beautiful and special history. With more volunteers we can realize more activities and openings!
