Spring is here!

Last Saturday (25 March) we welcomed a group of new gardeners, from both TU/e and Design Academy.

We had a great time doing spring cleaning đŸ™‚

And thanks to campus management we now have a very nice picnic table – a bit of a fixer-upper, but very nice. With a nice bright yellow finish it is now sitting in front of our community garden.

More to enjoy next month on Saturday 22nd April from 14:00 till 15:00h. Everybody welcome! Meet new friends, plant more herbs and veg, harvest first kitchen & tea herbs like chives, lovage, sage, mint and lemon balm.

New gardeners welcome!

Spring is on its way and the garden is coming to life again. We are very pleased to greet four new gardeners: Tatjana, Kunal, Marco en Timm.

Winter Is Coming

winter-is-coming-213 November is the next Work-Along Sunday. Because of the coming of winter, we’ll start in the afternoon at 14:00h. Gardening till 16:00h.

To do in November: clearing the garden of excess grass. Making it look nice for winter. Harvesting the last herbs and veggies and the first Jerusalem Artichokes (or: Helianthus tuburosus, aardperen in Dutch).

TUINHACK Challenge:
Easy & Fun

tuinhack_hackathon_challenge_urban gardeningYou want to get your hands dirty and have some fun in the garden. You have no experience and no idea where to begin or how to do it.

We challenge you to come up with a simple and compelling tool that makes gardening really easy and fun to do.

Imagine you have a spare hour and you are in the mood for something fun outdoors. You pull out your favorite gadget and it shows you what to do and how to do it. It will reward you for what you do correct and makes suggestions to help you improve.

Gamify, network with your friends…

Think about technical implementation, hardware, software, user experience, marketing, promotion and economic model. Make it so!
