In early 2019, Geesje’s picking garden will start plans to create a landscaped orchard with a wide variety of fruit trees and hazels in the Geestmerambacht recreational area. The idea arose from a deep desire to contribute to healthy care and a better environment by stimulating social awareness and involvement in food production.




The realisation of a biodynamic fruit-picking garden where care and meaningful work for people with mental disabilities will form an essential part. The picking garden is also a place where scientific research in the field of anthroposophical agriculture & care can take place.
