With their most viewed vlog, Nomi (20) and Babs (16) are the winners of 'Vlog uit de Kas' (Vlog from the Greenhouse) season 5. These enthusiastic students work at lily company Klaver Flowers and made a vlog about their side job in greenhouse farming last summer. They told about the business process from bulb to flower at the family business in Heerhugowaard. Some 23 million lilies are grown here every year.
The winning vlog
Nomi and Babs: "We got a lot of nice reactions to our video. The people who don't work in greenhouse farming were very enthusiastic." The girls won a fun outing with some colleagues.
Inspiring young people to also work in greenhouse horticulture
Last summer, schoolchildren showed how much fun it is to work in greenhouse horticulture during the summer holidays or at weekends. They tell more about their work and why they chose this job. With the vlogs, Glastuinbouw Nederland wants to show young people how fun and varied the work in and around the greenhouse is. In this way, the vloggers motivate and inspire peers to work in greenhouse horticulture.
The other vloggers were:
- Freek, 18 and works at Koppert Cress
- Manon, 21 and works at Bunnik Plants
- Ties, 15 and works at Kwekerij Duijvestijn
- Ole, 19 and works at Deliflor Chrysanthemums
