Plant Empowerment Academy invites you!

Plant Empowerment is an integrated approach to the cultivation process based on plants’ natural sustainability, efficiency and resilience and uses physiological and physical principles instead of green fingers and feeling. Moreover, Plant Empowerment is universally applicable for all crops, all occurring climate zones, and various types of greenhouses.
In their book “Plant Empowerment the basic principles”, the authors ir. P.A.M. Geelen, ir. J.O. Voogt and ing. P.A. van Weel have given a powerful, innovative impulse to the worldwide pursuit of sustainable and profitable greenhouse horticulture.
Since its introduction in 2018, Plant Empowerment has enjoyed increasing international interest from growers, researchers, consultants, knowledge institutions, and policymakers. The book, available in Dutch, English, and Spanish, has already sold many thousands of copies in more than thirty countries. For more information and ordering, check
In the meantime, the concept of Plant Empowerment developed from a seedling to a grownup plant. First of all, Plant Empowerment is already the fundament of the Dutch innovation program Het Nieuwe Telen (Next Generation Growing) for years. Also, more and more suppliers integrate the concept into the application of their products. And last but not least, the knowledge is implemented in the curriculum of many schools and universities both nationally and internationally.
That is why the time is ready to introduce a new, open and independent platform to bring knowledge and experience together: the new website www.PlantEmpowerment.Academy.
Within the Academy, the Authors of Plant Empowerment invite growers, suppliers, researchers, teachers, students, trainers, producers of teaching materials, etc., to meet each other, exchange knowledge and experiences and jointly develop new insights into sustainable cultivation in learning communities.
From 2022 July 1st, you are welcome on!
