Tuin … aan het Water
A green oasis along the quay
The garden Tuin … aan het Water answers the needs of the inhabitants in Charlois for a green meeting place along the quay. In this neighbourhood in the South of Rotterdam people without work search for a useful way of spending their days. Gardening can answer both needs.
By planting the garden together participation stimulated, education about nature is encouraged and a start for more green along the quay is made. For the inhabitants of Charlois a new spot at the water is created.
The garden Tuin … aan het Water is an initiative of Vitibuck and Stedelinks 010. Students from the University of Applied Sciences Rotterdam have made a design together with the inhabitants. For realisation we work with a local gardener and volunteers from the neighbourhood.
