Wilde-7 GbR is a small private enterprise set up to allow its two managing directors to turn their passion into something life sustaining, financially. Wilde-7 GbR also educates the wider public about the advantages of introducing wild flora into everyones diets again, as our predecessors did only a few decades ago naturally. Wilde-7 offers wild fresh herbs, workshops, lectures and stalls at events and gives Jörg and Michael the freedom to make a living in a very rural area and to participate in other activities in ecovillage Sieben Linden, their home.

Jörg ZimmermannAbout the German coordinator, Jörg

Dipl.-Ing. agricultural Jörg Zimmermann has been working for more than 10 years with wild plants and the various possibilities of their use for human consumption. After completing preparatory studies in specialized agricultural science at the Humboldt University in Berlin, he moved to the University of Kassel/Witzenhausen and studied further Organic Agricultural Sciences. His personal focus was on pure vegetable, vegan-organic farming. After his studies, he moved to the ecovillage Sieben Linden. Since 2003 he lives and works mainly as organic vegetable gardener. In 2008 together with his compagnon he started the wild herb delivery business Wilde-7 GbR. In 2012 he and 3 other Sieben Linden residents started another co-op together: Raw Living Deutschland – an online marketplace for raw and healthy quality food.

Politically he was active in an global agricultural network and several anti-gmo campaigns, beside other things.

Since he choosed a vegan lifestyle in 1997 he fell in love with food – and still is.
