Sharing Experiences: Communal Gardening [VIDEO]
It's estimated there are more than 100 communal gardens in Amsterdam. A solidarity network was seeded by 16 gardens coming together. Below, three gardens share their experiences of three of the most common challenges for the communal gardens.
Menno from the De KasKantine explains the common challenge of long-term land access (lange termijn grondgebruik).
Fiona from Cascoland explains the common challenge of "securing public resources for community care of high quality green".
Arnold from Voedseltuin IJplein explains the common challenge of climate-proof watering (klimaatadaptief water geven).
We hope you are inspired by the alternatives the food gardeners are cultivating and wish to be in solidarity.
