KALMTHOUT – The community garden ‘De Moerbei’ is located in Vogelenzangstraat. Here we work in a strictly ecological manner. Six beds are allocated for every three persons. With great care for the plants, crop rotation is practiced so that the soil does not become exhausted. Herbs and flowers ensure that bees and insects find their way to pollination.

On Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM and on the first Saturday of the month from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM, people work in the community garden. About ten gardeners alternate their work with a pleasant chat with a drink and a pastry. Collaboration is paramount.

Working in the shared garden provides wonderful relaxation that soothes the mind and body. The hands are no longer white but have taken on the color of the earth. Hands that will soon bring the healthy vegetables to the table.
The proceeds from a bed go to the three employees. This way they have healthy, ecologically grown crops in every season.

The operation is very accessible. The membership fee is 20 euros per year and a contribution is requested for coffee. The person in charge of the garden operations makes the most suitable purchases.
People still like to see new participants. No prior knowledge is necessary, just an interest in ecology and enthusiasm for gardening together.
For this purpose, the candidates turn to Katelijne. Email: [email protected] tel: 0456/14.58.80 and
