Project information

Name of food forest

Food forest Slinge brook


Food forest Slingebeek is located against the nature reserve "de Zumpe" and actually still within the built-up area of Doetinchem. The food forest was created by integrating a number of landscape elements into one large food forest. The food forest is laid out in a 2 hectare garden with a "two hole golf course", a standard fruit orchard with 13 standard fruit trees, a wadi and a frog pool. From 2016, various landscape elements have been added (such as forest plantation, coppice groves, hedges, herb garden, small fruit garden, chicken coop and apiary). In 2022, we started integrating the various elements. We are far from finished but are well on our way.
