Meet Maartje Kreike. She is pioneering with the foodforest in Eindhoven. On a large surface nature and human beings have been working together since 2009 from a food and remedial perspective, learning about the advantages of nature in a broad context. The objective is to integrate nature more and more into the neighborhoods for both awareness and local self sufficiency in our basic needs. Maartje tries to explain the nutricious and medical values of a certain herb to worldwide documentary maker, Joerg Altekruse. Maartje organizes workshops, does presentations, invites school children, works together with locals and caterers, etc.
A food forest provides abundance of nutrition for a population without the need to destroy the plants, the soil or the eco-system. On as many as 7 levels food can be obtained. In addition other life forms can collaborate to provide even additional sources, such as chickens, eggs, insects, honey, etc. The food forest is partner in the sustainocratic City of Tomorrow and FRE2SH network of transformative, resilient food initiatives in and around town.
