The story

Check out the second 4 Returns interactive and take a virtual tour of the Dutch Western Peat Meadows.

The Dutch Western Peat Meadows form a unique cultural and ecological landscape providing important services like absorbing carbon, preventing floods, and food production.

However, the peat meadows are under ecological pressure, and local residents have lost their connection with the people and landscapes which produce their food. Wij.land has been building up a farming network since 2016, to create sustainable business models that connect land, cow and consumer while finding a balance between nature and farming.

Now is your chance to meet a handful of these local heroes. Check out this interactive story and take a virtual tour.
