THE CITYPLOT COLLECTIVE

Cityplot is a collective of professional urban food growers, educators and permaculture designers

 

We encourage city dwellers to grow their own vegetables, herbs, edible flowers AND FRUIT and give them the tools to do so.

We believe that it is possible to grow healthy organic food on all scales in and around the city: from private growing spaces to community gardens, from schools and restaurants to large-scale urban food growing projects.

We start with the basics: from planting seeds to composting, and from attracting pollinators to your garden to harvesting. We demonstrate how simple and fun it is to provide healthy and sustainable alternatives to the global food system while creating holistic lifestyles for yourself and those around you.

Cityplot team members have extensive expertise in organic gardening, permaculture, architecture & landscaping, balcony & rooftop gardening, indoor & vertical gardening,  companion planting, square meter gardening, ‘lasagna’ gardening, herb spirals, restaurant gardens, seed saving, harvesting, pickling & preserving, composting, vermiculture, building healthy soil, sprouting & microgreens, ‘regrowing’ food, winter gardening, heritage & exotic plants, edible flowers, urban beekeeping & attracting pollinators, keeping chickens in the city, supporting community gardens, organising seed swaps, giving bicycle tours, and more!

We are based in Amsterdam, Berlin and Barcelona, but love to connect with urban gardeners anywhere on the planet.

Come join us, and expect to get dirty!


CITYPLOT ÉS UN Col·lectiu D'HORTICULTOR@S URBAN@S, EDUCADOR@S I DISSENYADOR@S DE PERMACULTURA.

Animem i ajudem les persones a conrear les seves pròpies hortalisses, herbes, flors comestibles i fruits. Creiem que és possible conrear aliments orgànics i saludables a les ciutats i els seus voltants: des d'espais privats fins a horts comunitaris, des d'escoles i restaurants fins a projectes d'horticultura urbana a gran escala.
Comencem pels bàsics: des de plantar llavors fins al compostatge, des de com atreure a pol·linitzadors fins a realitzar la collita del teu hort.

Volem demostrar com n'és de senzill i divertit trobar maneres d'aportar alternatives sanes i sostenibles per al sistema global d'alimentació i al mateix temps crear un estil de vida holístic per a tu i la gent que t'envolta.

Els membres de Cityplot tenim llarga experiència en agricultura ecològica, permacultura, arquitectura i paisatgisme, horts a balcons i terrats, jardins verticals i d'interiors, associació de plantes, horts de m², bancals de "lasagna", espirals d'herbes, horts de restaurants, recol·lecció de llavors, collita, fermentats i conserves, compostatge, vermicultura, construir un sòl sa, microverds i germinats, horts d'hivern, plantes exòtiques i plantes autòctones, flors comestibles, apicultura urbana i atracció d'insectes pol·linitzadors, gallines a la ciutat, jardins i horts comunitaris, intercanvis de llavors, tours amb bicicleta i... molt més!

THE CITYPLOT FOUNDATION

The Cityplot Foundation (separate from the Cityplot Collective) was established in 2017. The goal of the foundation is to encourage Amsterdammers to make conscious and sustainable food choices, and to inspire and stimulate future-proof agriculture by offering activities and workshops. The members of the Cityplot Collective generally carry out their work independently, unless it is expressly indicated that the work is taking place under the auspices of the foundation. The board of the Cityplot Foundation consists of Henriette Walz (Chair), Wim Verkaart (Treasurer), Maura Terhorst (Secretary), Analía Penchaszadeh, Hilda Akkermans and Rianne van der Sar.
