Invitation for Saturday, June 28 — A farm visitInternational Cafe @ Facebook
To all international students,
We would like to invite you to a very special event of International Café on Saturday June 28, 2014. This time it will be an excursion, also taking us outdoors at this great time of year (we hope it stays dry!)
We will visit the home of the family Kooistra in Lellens, where we will drink tea and visit their farm to get an idea of how farming is done in the Netherlands. They are in the process of building a new barn and will explain how this popular modern design will improve conditions for their cows. Wear old clothes, as it can be a bit muddy!
After everyone has seen the farm and had time to ask questions we will have time to enjoy a simple and tasty meal (also for vegetarians) and talk with one another. Extra surprise: At the farm we will get to taste some genuine Chinese food prepared by one of our students! For this meal there will be an extra cost of €3.00. There will be also be vegetarian food. Please sign up on time, by Thursday June 26.
To join us: Please come to the bus depot at Groningen central station and look for Bus line 140. Hans and Paul will meet you there at 14:10; the bus leaves at 14:22 — don’t be late! (There is only 1 bus per hour.) It takes 49 minutes to Ten Post — that is where you get out, near a windmill! Then we will arrange cars to meet you and drive you to the farm.
For those of you who have a chip card it costs €3.30 euros one way, so for the whole bus trip it will cost €6.60. If you have an OV card it will be less.
We will round off our visit to the farm at about 20:00.
All are welcome!!
VERY IMPORTANT: If you have signed up but for some reason are not able to come will you please let us know as soon as you can so that we know how much food will be needed!
We hope to see you again, and your friends are very welcome!
Paul Nieboer, Hans and JoAnn van Seventer, Hinke van Abbema and Martin Geertsma
