Visitor's Center
The educational activities at Het Ganzenhof are meant to introduce visitors to the many areas of its activities in an attractive and instructive manner. Het Ganzenhof has been acknowledged by Vlaco as a demonstration site of low impact and ecological farming. One may visit our composting demonstration site and there is an interesting joint venture with the composting authorities in Avelgem. An educational field trip package is offered to schools.

Bio Farm
Respect for the environment is a key attitude that characterizes all our activities. Our vegetables are grown without use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers. We use compost to grow common as well as forgotten varieties of vegetables and we respect the principles of crop rotation. The animals that we keep enjoy a natural environment and are reared on biological fodder. Het Ganzenhof guarantees biological cultivation and is recognized by BLIK.

Job care center
Het Ganzenhof aims to promote job and (re)integration opportunities for people who are unable to achieve these goals by themselves for personal or social reasons. For those, Het Ganzenhof may be a rewarding step towards reintegration within the regular or protected work environment.

Local meeting place
