About Fleurakker
FleurAkker is a project that celebrates the floral splendour, seasonal changes and wild beauty of nature with you. Just as fruit and vegetables taste best when harvested locally and seasonally, flowers picked close to home and at their peak reflect a true connection to time and place. Nature does not deliver her harvest all at once - each season reproduces its specific beauty.
 
A CSA flower share is the most sustainable and fair way to fully enjoy all these real beauties! You contribute to the social economy, you help to restore biodiversity, you support agro-ecological farming methods, you maintain green open spaces, you pay a fair price and every week you harvest high quality flowers that are really fresh and long lasting. A wide, seasonal range of form, colour and scent! The flower season starts in March/April and ends late October - depending on the first frost.
 
The field is located in the Rue du Bois in Jette. In the immediate vicinity of the Bois Du Laerbeek, the university hospital of Jette and the marshland of Jette-Ganshoren. Ideal for a day out in nature, a walk or a bike ride, with fresh flowers as icing on the cake!

You go for sustainability
BelAkker is part of Groot Eiland, an organisation that provides training for people that are far from the labour market. Planting, weeding and harvesting are done with the help of employees in labour care or in work experience training. You harvest locally produced, organically grown flowers.
