The Orangerie was formerly used for overwintering of large (tropical) plants that are not able to cope with the frost of the Dutch weather.
The graves had these large plants as an expression of their wealth. Where the current greenhouse is was once a swimming pool. Both rooms are different and decorated with great care. The brasserie has their own greenhouse and vegetable garden. They grow their own crops and fruit by volunteers of Staverden. In the vegetable garden grow a lot of different herbs , lettuce , beans, asparagus, beets, Jerusalem artichoke, zucchini, carrots, onion, pumpkins and shrub celery and in the green house you can find several grapes, fresh mint, eggplants, paprika and cherry tomato. Everyone can come and take a look or register for volunteers work.
