Maike Denissen

Owner of Bamboerin, Netherlands

I grew up on a farm and feel connected to nature. For years I was playing with the idea of giving a part of our farmland a different purpose. It developed from the idea of starting a mini campsite to the desire to grow a sustainable crop, something innovative with which I can contribute to the challenges we face today; reducing CO2 and nitrogen emissions. In 2022, I started a bamboo farm in The Netherlands for the production of wood, fibers and food; de Bamboerin.
