Food Forest is a concept by Bart Van Parijs and Ben Brumagne, two entrepreneurs merging ecology and economy. With years of experience in fruit farming, wild plants and forest planting, they combined their skills to design food forests for businesses, private and governments to improve our quality of life in every way.
They create Food Forest Designs with hundreds of different edible plant and fruit species.
Bart Van Parijs
Is a perfect example of how farming can be economically sustainable. With more than 20 years of experience in organic fruit farming, he is becoming a reference for organic small fruit production (www.purfruit.com). But his career didn't start here. Before farming, Bart ran a multinational furniture company, but decided to follow his dream in becoming a successful farmer.
Known as a wild plant specialist (www.foresttoplate.com) and teaches thousands of people on how wild plants can be used in the kitchen. From helping out Chef Kobe Desramaults to working with "The Botanist Gin", he is known all over Belgium. His degree in organic agriculture is largely based on growing herbs and permanent vegetation. He also runs a small event Chateau in France (www.Montvireux.com)
