Since early 2013 we have taken care of the Kantine Garden at the Open Coop in the Tolhuistuin, a short ferry ride from behind central station to Amsterdam North. We grow herbs, salads, vegetables and edible flowers for the kitchen, which is renowned for serving delicious and healthy salads every weekday at lunchtime. We have also set up a worm composting system at the Open Coop in order to recycle the kitchen’s vegetable waste into compost for the containers. In total we maintain around 30 food boxes, and we plan to expand the garden each year to accommodate the kitchen’s wishes.
We welcome volunteers to come to our weekly workdays at the Open Coop garden, contact us for more information!
