Hof ter Musschen or preserving an ancient farming landscape

16/09/2017 - 17/09/2017

Since the early 1980s, the Hof ter Musschen natural site has been managed and run by the Environmental Commission for Eastern Brussels (CEBE). In 2017 it was awarded the Belgian Landscape Prize for its work on the site, aimed at the preservation, sustainable management and promotion of an ancient farming landscape while emphasising its intrinsic natural assets and ensuring civic engagement.
On Sunday, the CEBE will present its multi-faceted activities in support of the site: guided tours, tours for disabled persons, nature management days, biological inventories, collaboration with other local associations, installation of an apiary, etc., as well as give a demonstration of traditional baking in the bakery. The traditional baking will be a particular highlight this year, with the bakery celebrating its 10th anniversary. Guides on site all day.
