Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I'm doing my MSc Organic Agriculture here in Wageningen. For me WSF is a great way to connect my brain and hands by bringing all the things I'm learning about farming and food into practice. I love being outside and having a nice time with friends while enjoying home-grown food and some beers. WSF connects me to my food and the earth, while making friends and learning a lot: it's a very good combination! Besides gardening, I enjoy hunting for second hand furniture treasures, drawing, painting, cooking and cycling. If you just want to have a chat, feel free to get in touch!
Nikita (Commissioner of Activities)
Hi dear people! I’m Nikita Koote (20) and I will be commissioner of activities for the coming year. I’m studying the BSc Plant Sciences and the Thursdays with WSF are truly my recharging day. When I first joined WSF in my first year, I was quickly smitten by all the lovely people of WSF, their endless enthusiasm and kindness. After being active with the Brewthers & Sisters and helping with cooking on Thursdays, I decided to join the board to hopefully add my little nugget of effort and value into WSF. As commissioner of activities I’ll help people of WSF set up workshops and create new projects. If you’ve got an idea you’d want to do with all of WSF, don’t hesitate to shoot me a message. See you around 😊
Tharun (Comissioner of Communications)
Hello Planters! My name is Tharun , I am currently perusing MSc Plant Biotechnology at WUR. Spending long hours inside projector rooms and labs as a part of my course made me always long for some time under the sky, lost in nature, away from all the beeps and clicks.
From the first day I walked into the field upon a friends suggestion the community has always never failed to surprise or impress . Most importantly the farm and the people have been the positive refuel I need at the end of a week. I'm looking forward to work to the best of my potential ,clicking some great pictures for cataloguing activities and updating the members about the current and upcoming events. If you've got a sharp photogenic eye for some great clicks or you want some updates on the website feel free to have a chat .
Janneke (Field Commissioner)
I’m Janneke and currently the Field Commissioner of WSF. I am doing a double Msc of Geo-Information Science and Forest and Nature Conservation. I’ve always liked doing multi-and interdisciplinary things and like being like the spider in the middle of the web, connecting everything. That is basically my role as a field commissioner now as well! I keep a general eye on the field, talk to all the different project leaders, guide members during working sessions, meet with external contacts and think about new ideas for the field. What I like most about all of this, is getting to be outside in a wonderful green environment with great people around me. I never go away from the field feeling anything else than happy :D If you have any new ideas for the field, let me know And hopefully see you around!
Hoi! My name is Lenka (20) and I am studying BSc Soil, Water,
Atmosphere. WSF is the first place in Wageningen where I felt like I am home. This is why I decided to give something back to its community by joining the board. Making and having dinner with friends, with food we grew together, is what makes me happy. It can’t be simpler than that. Besides the social aspect of WSF, I love being in contact with nature. So, I get that with all the weeding and digging at the field! This year I will be the treasurer of WSF, so I hope that I will help you turn your cool ideas into actual projects with the available budget! Feel free to contact me for finances, or just to have a beer.
