4 June 2016: urban gardening in the palace, Sintra

Just visited the National Palace in Sintra, Portugal and was interested to see the vegetable garden perched high above the city. No idea who it feeds, but it’s a great example of urban gardening in a world heritage site.



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!
