NATIVE SPECIES

With GBL’s support, SUGi and their local Forest Maker, Nicolas de Brabandère, are bringing the wisdom of ancient forests and the symbiotic benefits of biodiversity back as the capstone of a grand 50-year community restoration project in Pontisse, Belgium. Local children have been planting 26 different types of native trees and shrubs with their families in what they call the ‘King Charlemagne Forest’.


King Charlemagne Forest

Restoring ancestral forest in a dense village community. The creation of a Miyawaki forest, in Pontisse, Belgium, will be the last piece in a 50 year community project; a church, a school, a gymnasium, a public garden, a bicycle trail amongst other things!

De Ark

A forest learning center in Sint-Niklaas. The Ark is a primary school following the Freinet principle of ‘live learning’. Students will discover a vast living space full of wonderful creatures, stories, possibilities, communities, cozy corners and thrilling adventures.

Bee Forest

A bee friendly forest in Oudenburg.

Mandelwijk Forest
