What does the Werelboom foundation do?
Wereldboom is committed to let trees become ancient again
For this purpose we shape the growth sites of the trees in a way that they can grow freely to the old veteran trees that we now only know from fairy tales, stories and other countries.
A (neighborhood) association or organization plays a crucial connecting role between the tree and society.
What is a Wereldboom?
However, a Wereldboom is more than that. A Wereldboom connects the people around itself. Because of its often already decent age, the Wereldboom is a beacon within its community
Who are we doing that for?
Because trees have been the center of a community for centuries, we want to restore that. If a neighborhood, association or a group of enthusiastic people wants to commit to a tree in the area, we are happy to help with that!
A Wereldboom can be the center of an event or party, which used to be like that with ancient trees. Luckily we also like a nice festival. Therefore, we have a lot of inspiring ideas that we would like to share with you.
Who does that?
But… we’re not doing it alone. There is also enough to do for a Wereldboom community (Neighborhood association of other organization). One can think of lending a hand in caring for the tree or by doing historical research into the growth site.
The Wereldboom community is the bridge between the tree and its human environment. The link between the past, present and the future. Under a Wereldboom, people can celebrate, come together or organize activities. Enough to do for an active and lively group of local stakeholders.
