6 August 2015 – urban agriculture in Dordrecht, The Netherlands

I just visited Villa Augustus – a cafe/restaurant in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. It’s converted from the pumping station that supported Dordrecht’s former water tower – which is now a hotel. All of the garden produce is used in the cafe/restaurant and it is a great example of urban gardening on what was a completely abandoned site only 12 years ago. Well worth a visit if you are passing by!
