On international level a delegation of the national federation takes part in the general assembly of the Office International du Coin de Terre et des Jardins Familiaux ASBL.
A delegation of the national federation also takes part in the international congresses and seminars.
Tuinhier organises approximately a 1000 educational lectures, apart from those there are 600 excursions. In a lot of local boards there are seed exchanges and group purchases (plants, fertilizers, garden materials, etc.)
In this way we stimulate the friendship between the gardeners. So they can also acquire experience from their fellow-gardeners.
Additionally, many local associations bulk buy (seeds, plants, fertilisers, tools etc.)
In the future our federation will increase its efforts to get grounds so that every gardener can develop a healthy activity and enjoy recreation. The federation considers drawing the attention to the new forms of gardening in common.
“Tuinhier” together with its 210 local associations and its 21,000 members wants to take care of following objectives: sustainability and biodiversity in gardening and wants to preserve the future. Even after our 120 years of existence, “Tuinhier” is a very enjoyable movement and will remain so.
Gardening requests more than having green fingers; lobbying is also necessary towards the higher instances and scientific institutions. Both management and enthusiasm to guide are additionally also important for an optimal functioning of our federation “Tuinhier”.
“Tuinhier” will organise a congress in 2020. It organises workshops in order to start new initiatives. They use bottom-up ideas and put them into practice.
