Wie zijn wij?
Stichting Boerengroep (Peasant Foundation) is een studentenstichting van Wageningen Universiteit die als doel heeft de universiteit (studenten, onderzoek, onderwijs) te verbinden met de realiteit en uitdagingen van boeren in Nederland en wereldwijd. Op deze manier strijden we voor sociale, rechtvaardige en duurzame voedselproductie. Dit doen we door studenten in het veld te brengen en boeren in collegezalen van de universiteit.
