URBAN FARMING ROTTERDAM

Rotterdam is a pioneer when it comes to contemporary urban farming. We composed a route on which you can find some brilliant initiatives.

You probably need to get used seeing a vegetable garden in the middle of an industrial area. At the same time is it important to realize that agriculture and the city always have been intertwined. Rotterdam is a pioneer when it comes to contemporary urban farming, with ground-breaking projects in the city, that bring local inhabitants and their food closer together.

On this route, composed by us, one can find brilliant initiatives. From vegetable gardens near train tracks, on the river the Maas, in the middle of a residential area or even on the the rooftop of an office building. Discover the green side of Rotterdam!

One can find the route in the main UAR menu by clicking on ROUTES, then on Urban Farming. UAR can be downloaded for free via the App Store for iPhones and in the Google Play Store for Android.

The Urban Farming-tour is offered as part of the NAi‘s Summer program, together with Non Fiction.
