What makes this accommodation sustainable
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.
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!
