In the YouTube program Later when I grow up, Anna (11) and Rein spend a day working as a plant grower in our nursery.

Anna and her dream job: plant grower

Every now and then there are those meetings at the company that you will not soon forget. Because of the people, the reason or the result. The visit of 11-year-old Anna de Groot scored on all three. She visited us for a day together with a film crew from the popular YouTube channel Later als ik ben Groot . In any case, we will never forget it, because we have the episode that will be online from today.

What a fun day that was! Anna came by because she wants to become a plant grower when she grows up. And that turned out not to be just a wild idea. Besides already knowing a lot about plants, she was full of questions.

You could call her curious. She wanted to know everything: how the plants grow in the greenhouses and what is involved, about innovations, light, heat, water and biological control. She was surprised by the drones flying around our greenhouses. And she became visibly happy when creating the Hydroponics concepts, working with plants and beautiful vases.

Plants and nature

Together with colleague Bjorn Hoogeveen, I showed Anna and presenter, singer and GTST actor Rein van Duivenboden our company. We talked about our own passion, how much fun it is to work with plants and nature. And that everyone feels better in a green environment, that plants around you give you peace, at home, at school and at work.
