Peak into the sweet Weleda garden in Zoetermeer

Weleda

Cosmetic brand Weleda owns gardens where devoted employees produce the ingredients for the oils, shampoos, soaps and creams. I visited the one in the Dutch city Zoetermeer. Some days it is open to a select public.

It is interesting to visit this green spot in the middle of buildings on an industrial area, and hear the stories of anthroposophical and ‘biodynamic’ gardening by gardener Jan Graafland, who is taking care of it all. He gives a fascinating view on cooperating with mother nature.

Braid your brand name with twigs!

Great way of pointing out what plant is sown here: marigolds.

Impressive giant poppy and a serene Centaurea montana.

The Angelica Archangelica produces an impressive flower. The plant has antibacterial and anti-fungal elements. The oil of the root is used in aromatherapy.

Anthroposophical philosophy: if a plant chooses to grow somewhere, let it be. Maybe guide it to a spot where you prefer it. But let it go. Quite a mindful look on gardening here. 😆

Keeping bees is essential for the natural process of pollination in a garden.
