Ekoto works according to the principle of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Farmer and consumer commit to a sustainable relationship. We provide vegetables every week for a harvest season, from May to November.

This is what you get from us:

  • On the "Collection Day" an assortment of vegetables at a collection point of your choice. You get 3 to 4 varieties with a small harvest box and 5 to 7 varieties with a normal harvest box.
  • On "farm day" Saturday (09.00 - 12.00) you can come to Ekoto's Farm, drink tea or coffee and attend the education or play moments for children.
  • You can become a member of the app group 'Ekoto recipe inspiration' and the app group 'Ekoto harvest' with information about the vegetables of the week.
  • There will be some annual celebrations. You can also become a volunteer, set up an event team or organize canning days. But first and foremost, nothing is expected from you, it is entirely optional and voluntarily.

Main points:

Solidarity Payment

The payment is different than you are used to. The annual amount for your harvest portion is based on your capacity, mutual solidarity and the horticulturist's hourly wage. This system is called Solidaire Payment.

We divide the fixed costs equally for everyone. You choose the hourly rate yourself. This together forms the price of the veggie box. Choose what is feasible and appropriate for you. Want to know the in-depth calculations behind the costs? Read it here.

Super healthy

We do not use any pesticides and take care of the soil with organic fertilizer and compost. Because we do not use fertilizers, the crops absorb many micronutrients such as boron, calcium, copper and manganese.

We don't grow vegetables, but nutrient-rich food. This way you and your family stay healthy and energetic.

The gardeners

Coordinator of the Community Garden is Jannes van Roermund, who previously worked as a journalist and took an annual Permaculture course.

Founder of Ekoto is Ivar van Dorst. He completed HAS Green Academy, set up his own company, conducts research into old 'primal' varieties and new crops and gives lectures at Wageningen University, among others.

Collection points

We prefer the pick up at Ekoto's farm. At your request, a number of collection points have also been created at involved harvest sharers. At the packaging-free shop Elemental Eco in the Boschstraat in Breda, you can combine picking up the box with your daily sustainable shopping.

A collection point can be hosted with at least 10 affiliated harvest sharers. If we don't reach that number, we'll see what solution is possible.

From 100 harvest sharers

Last year we ran a successful pilot with 60 participants. This concept was born quite spontaneously. This winter we started calculating what it takes to turn this into a sustainable model. The outcome was that we can realize the garden with a minimum of 100 harvest sharers.

Become a volunteer

Of course you don't have to, but we are very happy with volunteers who come to help half a day a week. Coffee and our own Ekoto tea will be ready. It's mostly a good time. Registration is via the newsletter, that you will receive later on.
