The Plantage is an urban farm situated in the inner courtyard of the WOW complex. This Plantage functions as a laboratory for the experimentation of food production in urban areas. It inspires people to experience their surroundings differently and creates awareness of and a respect for food. In co-operation with the Amsterdam Grafisch Atelier, an ink garden will provide non-toxic material for printing processes. The Plantage inspires creative people to connect art with food production.
Working with us
De Plantage has recently doubled her orchard and vegetable garden, and now we’re looking out for helping hands in the garden to sustain this growth. Do you want to contribute in this garden where connection is made between art, sustainable food production and innovative techniques? Every Wednesday from 10 AM Naan and Frank facilitate a working day. While getting in touch with nature they can tell you about the vision and aspirations of the plantation. You can also get in touch with the Plantage by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
