"Hello everyone! I'm Mathieu and am the chair of WSF. I am currently studying a bachelor in Environmental Sciences. I love spending time outside, running (occasionally barefoot) and dancing to funky music! I also really enjoy getting my hands dirty by doing a lot of digging and serving the field as a soldier in the ongoing war with weeds! As chair I will need to keep an overview of the association, but also what is going on around it. I am very excited for this year and if ever you have any questions about WSF or ideas for the association feel free to come along or contact me! See you on the field!"
Tim (Commissioner of Activities)
Hi! I’m Tim (22) and I am the commissioner of activities for WSF. I am studying for my Msc Biology and I love to work out the stress on the farm. I started at WSF in my 4th year in Wageningen, you could call me a late bloomer. After the first time I joined I fell in love with the whole atmosphere and the people of the farm. I really like integration and interaction, which is also why I wanted to be commissioner of activities. As commissioner I am here to help the lovely people of WSF to set up the projects they want that promote: food, flore, education, sustainability or just fun! Furthermore I just want to help at WSF and keep that feeling of being welcome on the farm! If you have any ideas for new projects or just want to talk, then you are always welcome. Cheers, Tim.
Aina (Comissioner of Communications)
I am a MGI (Geo-information Science) student, a small masters which requires lots of hours in front of a computer. And I love computers, but I also miss the feeling of the sun, the rain and the fresh air in my skin. For this reason I enjoy working in the Field, which I find the perfect way to disconnect from university work and connect with nature and people. At WSF I am in charge of social media and promotion: I take pictures, write posts and communicate about what we're doing and what we've done.
Bent (Field Commissioner)
Moin! I’m Bent (25), MOA student and Commissioner of the Field.
Nature is magic; therefore, I love being outside, unlocking the mysteries of life. Growing my own food makes me feel being my inner self right here, right now. Becoming more circular and having a low impact on climate collapse and pollution are just some of my aims. Moreover, I enjoy being with friends and not yet friends sharing discussions, fun, activities and gardening. Feel free to contact me whenever you have any questions regarding The Farm or the Field Committee or if you just want to have a chat. Cheers friends let’s get down to earth!
Hey Hey! My name is Smara and I am the secretary of WSF. I am studying International Land and Water Management, finishing my first year.
WSF was the first association I joined when I came to Wageningen and I immediately felt like home and decided to stick around. Gardening, watching the little plants grow, while meeting different people and sharing all kinds of beautiful ideas is what keeps me enthusiastic about every session. WSF is teaching me a lot, so I decided to give something back, by joining the board. :)
My task within the association is mainly administrative: checking emails, getting to know the new members, by adding them to the database and also writing the Newsletter, which is super fun if you enjoy a weekly dose of vegetable humor :)
I‘m a plant, by which I mean enjoying the sun - having a green and sustainable attitude and drinking. I also study plant sciences at WUR - where I am completing my master’s thesis. At WSF I fulfill the duty of treasurer, where I take care of our finances and project budgets.
