My name is John Miltenburg. I got to like Creuse Nature years ago. My children felt happy there. And I loved to play the piano in the bar.
Often other guests joined me in that bar, bringing their instruments or singing. In 2002 I started to announce to them and others in what week I intended to be there again. That was the start of Fields of Gold.
Since 2003 Pieter van Leeuwen joined me as band coach and musical leader.
He is an experienced researcher and teacher of social professionals in how to work with creativity and music.
Some years later, Anke Kuiper joined us. She prepares and conducts the choir and also plays the saxophone. Her profession is to teach piano.
More recently Renske van Ebbenhorst joined us as a sound engineer. And over the years many more participants started helping… so don’t be surprised if you get asked too!
In Fields of Gold, all of us are enjoying our holidays and none of us gets paid. We chose to keep it that way. to anchor our own commitment and creativity at the highest level. And to keep the financial threshold low…
