"...How a little barbecue could evolve into a garden rave, how left-over materials were made into chicken shelters, how borders were getting crossed by slides or doors, how I felt I became part of the “farmhouse family.” Everything was growing." - Merel Zwarts, taken from the publication
Please read about the never-ending story of commoning the Terwijde Farmhouse here, which is one of the last remaining dysfunctional farmhouse in Leidsche Rijn. In 2018 the Outsiders and the Casco team together with a group of neighbours and artists, reanimated the space - under the name Erfgoed (Agricultural Heritage and Land Use). The publication is an assemblage of stories from some of the neighbors and artists who were active in animating the farmhouse and turned it into a site of what we call “commoning”, which also gives a background to the birth of the Travelling Farm Museum of Forgotten Skills.
