Church Garden project in Amsterdam

Link to blog: Jeruzalemtuin

Foamlab and the Jeruzalemkerk have started an edible urban garden in Amsterdam-West. We are trying to create an edible garden using permaculture with a team consisting of Church members and neighbours.

Since the grounds are poor in nutrients we have decided to enliven it not with animal or chemical manure, but by using plants that can do this. This green manure is a mixture of many native plants. We found a great mixture here: seeds There are also (native) fruits for the church community, neighbours and local wildlife to enjoy. More on this follows..
