The old Pondemaat

A ‘pondemaat’ in Friesland (a region in the North of The Netherlands) is an area of some 1/3rd hectare. The name is taken from a small garden (of that size) which we ran in Bennekom (at the edge of Ede; Gelderland) where we (Hans & Rinske Schiere) worked some six years on local food chains and peri-urban farming. It is the type of work we do hope to continue for many years to come, at this little farm with a similar size, with exact plans still to be better shaped. For more information see
