The caretakers

Hi! We are Ruud & Merel, in the start of April 2020 we became the new caretakers of Den Food Bosch

In our backyard we have our own foodforest. This is 5000m2, 2 years younger and has a different approach to it then Den Food  Bosch. We are very happy to be the new caretakers of Den Food Bosch, this is a nice challenge for us to show that a foodforest can be a profitable business. 

For all the news around Den Food Bosch we mostly post on Facebook. Do you want to know more about us? Check our website:

The students and volunteers

On a regular base, people from all ages and backgrounds, come to work at the food forest, either for just some days or for an internship of several months. These people have in common that they envision a new form of agriculture and want to learn more by putting their feet on the ground and their hands in the soil.

Here will be our future helping hands
