That’s why we donate to Stichting Hoopheggen

Hoopheggen is a wonderful civic initiative with a positive outlook for getting things done and great potential for scaling up. Hedgerows are good for biodiversity, water retention, soil quality, cultural and historical value, air purification, and a better climate in the Netherlands.
