Our current offer
1. Aquaponic Greenhouse
2. Eating Bugzzz
3. DIY Plant Terrarium
4. Direct your Energie


aquaponic greenhouse

The aquaponics greenhouse is the key to recycling nutrients at De Ceuvel. The greenhouse produces vegetables and herbs for Cafe de Ceuvel using a closed-loop aquaponics system, combining fish and vegetable production. The fish excretes are broken down into nutrients for the plants, and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. Aquaponics is thus based on the natural symbiosis between plant and water life.

Workshop

Lecture

This workshop will combine the introduction to the aquaponics ecosystem with a practical approach. Besides understanding how it works and having a better insight into plant management and urban farming, the participants will also create their own small growing system, the size of a small jar, with a plant that they can take home.

Duration  120 minutes
Price  €650 excl. VAT
Capacity  Groups up to 20 people

An introduction that will offer a strong basic knowledge of what is an aquaponics ecosystem and a general explanation of how it works. The different methods, possibilities, and challenges.



Duration  60 minutes
Price  €450,- excl. VAT
Capacity  Groups op to 35 people

A jungle or a mountain landscape in your house? Create your own closed terrarium with terrarium specialist Malou from Studio Wüst.

Malou tells you all about it while you build and plant your own terrarium.

While you get started with recipes from BUGZZ, different topics from entomology, or ‘insecuisine’, will be covered. From history to sustainability, to how you can prepare insects from home. Together we’ll taste the dishes while we explore this relatively unknown cuisine.

During this lecture, we will discuss the theory behind the ‘insecuisine’. What do insects taste like? Why are insects more sustainable than conventional meat? And not irrelevant, where can I buy insects?

Direct your Energy

Apps, websites, email, social media, advertisements. Our attention is caught from all sides. We measure ourselves by perfect pictures and the success that others show. In the hunt for happiness, we think less and less about what we really need and exhaust ourselves. No wonder that stress-related complaints such as depression and burn-out are all around us.

Fortunately, things can also be different. In the workshop Direct your Energy, you get to know yourself in a new way. The organisation Vitamin Z creates a safe but challenging environment in which you can use your own experience to build resilience – resilience against the perfect pictures and the stress of always being present. Take control of your energy and reconnect with yourself and others.
