Opening of our Sponge garden

Together with our sponsors, supporters and friends, De Urbanisten squeezed out a sponge to celebrate the opening of our Sponge garden in Rotterdam.

In the Sponge garden, we are testing new concepts for collecting, retaining and returning rainwater to the natural environment. Experiments with soil mixtures, planting and sponge techniques take place in different planting areas in the circular garden.

The Sponge garden is open for public and is located in de “Voedseltuin”. Be welcome!
