Maybe you’ve always wanted it: a place to grow your own vegetables in the middle of the city? Or do you just think it’s fun to be busy with people from your neighborhood? Then rent a container in the neighborhood vegetable garden De Tropentuin next year and get started growing vegetables.
Growing vegetables in the middle of the city
Hidden between KIT and Oosterpark is the Tropentuin. There has been a neighborhood vegetable garden here since 2018, with a garden full of native herbs, a greenhouse, worm hotel, bean hoppers and twenty vegetable garden boxes. Local residents, and employees and tenants in KIT have built the boxes themselves from recycled materials.
