In the midst of busy Amsterdam you can find green corners and nooks carved out by the people that live there. More and more of these green spots pop up, because more and more people become aware that they need nature in their lives. It makes you happier and it is an excellent place to meet other Amsterdammers.
2 of these projects invite you to come and have a closer look, help them realise some of their projects and take care of the gardens in the summer.
The work is diverse and on several locations in and around Amsterdam. At the "Ruytergaard' you will join the weekly workmorning as well as making a detailed map of the ground: what grows there, the soil and the humidity. In the 'Shaffy's Tuin' you will also join the weekly workday, maintain the childrens garden, renovate the sandbox and do some painting. Besides that you will build 1 or more 'Zonnedroogkasten' – a structure that will help us dry herbs and other products from the garden. And we will visit some other green initiatives in town.
We will discuss the need for green in cities and how this helps the social structures in the city. Also you will learn something about plants and gardening.
Volunteers will be hosted by volunteers of the projects. At least one night (depending on the weather) we will spend at a fortress outside Amsterdam. Food will be prepared by the volunteers and will be mainly vegan with some dairy options.
Please bring a sleeping bag. Also it would be great if you can bring your bike or even bike all the way to Amsterdam. We can help you find a route and sleeping places on the way.
