REGISTER HERE FOR 2022 !  Registration CourJette 2022 

WELCOME
In the Laarbeek forest, a green oasis in the north of Brussels, lies our field. CourJette is a self-selection farm of Groot Eiland where farmers Tom and Tine work on a project where social employment and agroecological principles are central. We strive for sustainability and prefer the principles of the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model to build a strong and inclusive community. The field is currently 'in conversion' to organic farming. This means that we comply with the organic farming regulations and are monitored in this regard. The fields will not be officially certified organic until March 2022, as it takes two years to convert conventionally farmed land to organic one.

CSA
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a socio-economic model that brings farmers and consumers back into direct contact with each other. The community supports the farmer by taking out an annual subscription. In exchange, each member receives a share of the harvest that is shared as it comes, a little more of some and a little less of others. CourJette is a picking garden where you come to harvest your own share. This brings you into regular contact with other members and farmers. It is a place where you can relax and learn more about what is on your plate.

SELF HARVEST
The field is open seven days a week, from sunrise to sunset. Members can come when it suits them. On the field, they find all the information they need to be able to harvest independently. At the reception desk, there is an information board with the vegetables to be harvested and their location in the garden. Flags and pictograms on the beds show what and how to harvest. The members are informed of the offerings by e-mail every week.


BECOME A MEMBER
Members commit themselves for the whole season. This runs from early May to late April. The rates are €375/year for adults over 18, children over 5 pay €18 x child age. The intention is that the whole family subscribes. You can find a registration form at the top of this page. For more information you can always mail us.
