About...

De Moestuin (= vegetable garden) Maarschalkerweerd was founded in 2002 and is located 5 minutes by bike from the Uithof (next to the Galgenwaard Stadium). As of 2007 the organisation also possesses a vegetable shop and a lunch café. The shop offers vegetables, fruits and herbs from the garden, but also organic honey, tea, soups and juices. In the lunch café you can find good coffee, brownies, sandwiches and soup. In addition, the lunch café and greenhouse can be hired for parties and meetings. 

Walking through the shop and the café will get you to the garden. On the terrace and benches you can enjoy the open, read a book, have a meeting or study. When you walk through the rest of the vegetable garden you will encounter a herbs garden, flowers that you can pick for a small price and a wide variety in fruits and vegetables. There also is a vinery, bee hives and an animal meadow with potbellied pigs, goats, chickens and rabbits.

Through its vegetable garden, carpentry, greenhouse, shop and lunch café the Moestuin Maarschalkerweerd offers day care and employment to people having difficulties to access the labour market. Coaching these people is done independently by the Moestuin. The team consists of professional gardeners, cooks, a carpenter and employees with extensive experience in field such as psychiatry and rehabilitation. This team is supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteers.

You can also help out as a volunteer, by sowing and planting, harvesting or supervising children’s parties.
