Green mission, green fingers

It’s spring! Are your fingers starting to itch too? Ours is! March 24 was the kick-off of the Tropentuin in the Museum garden at the Tropeninstituut where we now grow our own vegetables and use the shared herb garden. So Studio Solarix not only has a green mission, but also green fingers!

At the initiative of The Healthy City, a neighborhood vegetable garden has been located behind the Tropenmuseum since 2018, with a self-picking herb garden, greenhouse, worm hotel and twenty vegetable garden containers. The Tropentuin is beautifully situated between KIT and the Oosterpark and is part of the Museum Garden, designed by DS Landscape Architects.

Various collaboration sessions and fun activities are organized at the Tropentuin, for example, the opening of the vegetable garden season took place on 24 March. In collaboration with Nancy Wiltink of Moestuin School Amsterdam, a starter package was available for a private Tropenbak, Rowin van Compostier explained the worm hotel and the herb picking garden is made possible by Abbing Buitenhof. A great collaboration between local residents, companies and sustainable initiatives of which Studio Solarix is happy to be a part.

The planting season has started, we have our own tropical container and are looking forward to the Solarix lunches this summer with our own vegetables. On to a bright green future!
