Have you heard about “Urban Farming”? Are you interested in collaborating in a community garden?
Growing food in the city (Urban farming) combines the best of many worlds: it encourages social interaction among different cultures and ages, brings biodiversity to the city, helps to retain water and cools the city. Besides, by practicing it you will experience nature with your hands and enjoy tasty and nutritious food. Everybody is invited to participate and contribute.
Trefpunt Groen Eindhoven, Art + Tech Society and Eindhoven Library are inviting you to join two series of virtual presentations, where you will be introduced to some Urban Farming initiatives in Eindhoven. And learn how you can engage!
When? Monday May 31st and Monday June 14th from 20:00 to 21:00 hours.
Watch the webinar from 31 May here.
Gardening and community gardening
Stefan Pfundtner is a very passionate and social gardener who started his green activities in Eindhoven by helping setting up the community garden at High Tech Campus. Five years ago, he – together with other neighbors – started a community garden in his own neighbourhood (Irisbuurt) as well. For Stefan, these greening activities are about food, sustainability and socialising. Especially the social aspect is important, it’s not about creating a garden but an inclusive space for everybody, nature and neighbors.
“Adopt a Street”
Kees Lepoeter started “Adopt a Street”, inspired by the idea of taking care of a public space close to his home that makes him feel happy. Nowadays he collaborates with the Municipality Eindhoven and has hundreds of citizens following his example each year. This project aims to make the living environment greener and more beautiful, but has also added edible plants to the plant selection this year. With success!
During some of the events of Eindhoven Library, pictures are taken for the potential publication on social media, online- or printed media. At lectures, mainly the speaker and the location as a whole, are photographed. Please inform the photographer, if you do not wish to be photographed.
