Urban Agriculture

planting seeds of change in the green east

Living in a city can offer you many things like work, friends and cultural diversity. However, we also get more and more disconnected from our roots: the land, community and connection with nature. Urban  gardens are an oasis in the concrete jungle. You can find relaxation, better health, harvests and community. This while improving the beauty of the city, and of course, rescuing some carbon! 

 

In this tour we’ll talk about the importance of retrieving the connection with the Earth, community feelings and sustainable and productive ways of gardening .

Come to discover and enjoy some green, hidden treasures of Amsterdam Oost!

With this tour we would like to show new ways of urban farming, and the endless possibilities of green cities.  Amsterdam is a crowded city. In between the canal houses and bike racks you may have spotted the occasional flowerbed. But agriculture in the city is thriving and as local gardens bring in their harvests, we will dive into the topic off urban farming.
