The Castle of the East-Flemmish village of Hansbeke was the location of an interesting event on July 30th. Organised by SOILCOM's partner ILVO.  By organizing the event, ILVO and co-owner and organic grower Felix de Bousies officially started their cooperation together with agricultural consultant and researcher Alain Peeters.
