Soeptuin Bredius

This garden in the Spaarndammerbuurt of Amsterdam grows fresh vegetables and herbs for the local food bank.

In addition to delivering fresh crops, the ‘soeptuin’ (soup garden) serves as a green meeting place for the neighbourhood. Soeptuin Bredius is organised entirely by volunteers.

In 2016 Cityplot will give a series of workshops to the gardeners on soil health and crop planning for a balanced garden.

Get in touch if you’d like to join in the garden team of this amazing project. Thursday morning and Sunday afternoon is the best time to find the volunteers in the garden. Or you can email
