Freek Schiphorst, one of four board members of Stichting de Zaaier, is currently visiting Auroville together with Martine Busek and Jan-Willen Pieterson. Here we interview him. After briefly introducing Zaaier, Freek explains that the Auroville visit is an exploration of what is happening here, not an evaluation mission. Especially for him and Jan-Willen, who are here for the first time, the aim is to get a "feeling" of what is going on. Freek has been deeply moved by the Auroville youth, and by the personal commitment of community members.
