Meet the people behind Food from the Forest

Food from the Forest is founded by Marieke Karssen from The Plant and Frank Gorter from the Welna Estate. Fiona Loomis is a new member of the team, a recent anthropology and environmental graduate who has dedicated her time after her bachelors to developing food forests. 

Our goal is to accelerate the development of professionally designed and professionally led food forests, and to improve the position of food forests in the regular fields of agriculture and forestry.  Marieke, Frank and Fiona cooperate with a network of companies, teachers, non-governmentals and research institutes.
