Urban Farming in Amsterdam Oost Walking Tour

Carolina will show you the urban farming hotspots of Amsterdam Oost (Eastern Amsterdam).
With her background as a sociologist she knows the urban problems like a lack of social cohesion in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
One of the projects is to get people out of their homes on the street to engage in social contacts. Residents in these neighborhoods have received from the municipality plots for growing their own vegetables, flowers or herbs. The projects have proven to be successful. Residents take responsibility, social cohesion increases and problems as loitering or drug-related are significantly reduced. The project is for all ages from school children to seniors.
Armed with seed bombs Carolina walks through the neighborhood. Here and there she drops a seed bomb, which she calls guerrilla seeding.
Carolina has an extensive knowledge of different herbs and knows many applications. Such as hogweed, which is a protected species and can be used as garlic, but also about common herbs as thyme, rosemary and basil.
In the Tugelahuis garden we find mainly greens. The Wibauthuis Garden is an example how unused space turned in a successful garden project. The garden Afrikanerplein has ensured that nuisance by young people disappears and increased sense of security.
From restaurant De Kas we walk to one of the oldest city parks of Amsterdam Small Danzig with a wide variety of garden sheds.
At the end of our tour we sip herbal tea at Merkelbach restaurant also known as the Frankendael home. We left a trail of seed bombs and our knowledge of herbs have been enriched.
Away from the hectic center of Amsterdam Caroline lets you breath the fresh air of the vibrant suburbs.
Get to know Amsterdam in a special way Carolina is your guide who shows you the green side of the Dutch capital.

Amsterdam's Favourite Food Tour

My son, who is 15 years old, and I couldn't have asked for a better host than Olav. He combined a unique insight not only into the food culture of Amsterdam but the history behind it. We are both food lovers and it was great to be shown the city by someone who has such a passion for the subject, and knows the best places to find a wide range of cuisines Olav also very kindly provided us with many tips for places to visit and further culinary delights. Thank you Olav for showing us the real Amsterdam. Cheryl and Thomas
