Description

Coöperatie Ondergrond is building sustainable, edible, multifunctional green landscapes, designed and managed according to food forest principles. We do this both in and around the city as well as in the countryside. Our aim is to strengthen the bond between city and country, consumer and producer, and between people and nature. By creating food forest gardens and edible green spaces within the city, the food forest story is told through the experience of seeing, feeling, smelling and tasting.

We work to create as much edible greenery as possible in the short term, and to make the entire society function as a resilient food forest in the long term. By telling the story of the food forest, we strengthen the bond between city and country, between consumer and product, and between people and nature.
