Joop Reichenfeld is a creative herb woman. The Tuinjoop T-huis and herb garden are on the edge of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, near to the Maasuiterwaarden nature area. Here she collects vegetable, herb and flower seeds from her garden and from the wild. She makes herbal tea, lip balsam, creams, salves and soap from her harvest.
Gradinka means ‘small garden’ in Bulgarian and this is a playful reference to Hedwig’s other hobby: the beautiful Bulgarian way of singing. Here, in her organic-dynamic garden Hedwig grows and collects the seeds of over 300 herbs, vegetables and kitchen herbs, heirloom tomatoes, edible flowers and wild plants. She makes ointments, massage-oils and dyes, she uses edible wild plants to make liqueur and wild pesto. She has a lot of special and edible plants in her garden. She has saved seeds for future breeding all her life, and this has now developed into lively bartering. She enjoys preserving biodiversity and going against the large firms such as Bayer and Monsanto. Gradinka is connected to the network ‘Eeuwig Moes’, which is committed to the preservation of old vegetable varieties.

De Zaaiagenda voor de Moestuin – Laura Beijn
The Seed Agenda for the Vegetable Garden is an indispensable reference work for both experienced and novice vegetable gardeners. The sowing data of more than 200 types of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers are arranged according to the calendar instead of by type. It is clear at a glance what you can sow, plant, cuttings or transplant when. All information is based on more than 25 years of vegetable garden experience of Diana Stek (mooiemoestuin.nl) and displayed very compactly through the use of specially designed icons. The meeting between vegetable garden blogger Diana Stek and creative Jack-of-all-trades Laura Beijn led to a fruitful collaboration and a beautiful friendship. The Seed Agenda for the Vegetable Garden is a great result of this.

De Zaderij / Buiten Bant
De Zaderij is a cooperative of farmers, horticulturists and care farms that select and propagate biological (dynamic) seeds themselves. We only have seed-resistant (reproducible) and patent-free varieties in our product range. Tineke Alberts van de Zaderij stands for breeding from the heart, where the economy is not leading. She is busy with a regional spinach variety that is resistant to downy mildew (also called wolf) and has adapted to the clay soil.
