What makes this accommodation sustainable

Plant-based food

In the picking garden you are surrounded by ecologically grown vegetables. You’ll probably discover a host of veggies you’ve never seen on your plate before!

Local products & collaborations

The picking garden works on the principle of community supported agriculture, which means that farmers work for – and with – the local community, so that food is locally grown and obtained in a fair and responsible manner.

Green transport

The transport of fruit and vegetables by plane, truck or ship has a huge impact on the environment. By growing locally, it can be picked up on foot or by bicycle. You can easily reach the picking garden by public transport from Nijmegen station. Take the bus or opt for an public transport bicycle!

  • The team building assignment

    Just like in a company, in a vegetable garden you are dependent on many external factors. Can you as a team respond to this in time or will you lose it from the market?

    During the assignment you transform a piece of land into a nutritious soil suitable for sowing edible plants. It’s up to you to grow a company lunch for the next company outing. What should be sown and what ingredients are in the lunch?

    As a team you have to work together to properly build, prepare and fertilize the vegetable bed – and this within a limited time. Good cooperation and a tight plan are indispensable for the success of the assignment!

Answers to your questions

  • Are green fingers required during this company outing?

    People often think that only the people with the magical green fingers can successfully plant and maintain a vegetable garden. But actually anyone can do it! You just need to know how to do it.

  • Will the company outing continue with bad weather?

    Gardening in bad weather is just a little less fun. In case of bad weather or a lot of rain, we will look for a replacement date together.

  • Why is team building important?

    During work, good cooperation and a good working atmosphere are very important. Company outings help to build a close and positive team. Enjoying your job is just as important as understanding what you’re doing. This is the ideal company outing to bring this about. And it’s good for the environment too!
