In this Drents recreation forest is an old 1920s cottage, zoned for recreation and, in time, housing. After some repairs, it is now used as a ceramic studio. The mixed forest has continued to be enriched annually with edible species: linden, bilberry, chestnut, walnut, sugar maple, hazelnut, currant tree, elderberry, olive willow, raspberries, woodland strawberries, honeyberry, mulberry, blackberry, currants, asparagus, hogweed, cow parsley and other edible herbs. A drinking pond was also created, which was soon inhabited by frogs. Deer, squirrels, hedgehogs and all manner of insect and bird species were attracted to it.
