Midwest Experimental Station

Webhome: Proefstation MidWest

The Experimental Station is a 500m2 experimental orchard in Amsterdam West which includes a greenhouse. The location is currently being developed into a garden that offers space to artists, designers and biohackers for experiments of any duration.
Experimental Station:
The garden is inspired on experimental stations as they existed until the early 90s, when research and development of fruit varieties and growingmethods were undertaken as a public service. These centers have been privatised and the knowledge that is being developed is patented. Zackery Denfeld of the Center for Genomic Gastronomy is currently writing a vision-statement on what the current role of experimental stations could be.

Programs:
Besides urban fruitgrowing we focus also more broadly at urban ecology, restoration ecology and artistic expression related to the living environment.
