Health Gardens in Brussels walks and visits on World Environment Day, 5 June 2020

Many urban gardens in densely populated cities like Brussels are islands of thriving biodiversity and health. On this World Environment Day we will make walks and visits in various Health Gardens of Brussels to observe the diversity of medicinal and edible plants which can help us to preserve our health and prevent various diseases. We will share on-line in coming weeks  with you glimpses of our observations.

Green spaces of care sessions

There are many inspiring examples of cultural heritage institutions that use green spaces or gardening as a framework for working with vulnerable people. After all, a green space is often the way for a community to come into contact with a museum in an accessible way. For example, people can create a vegetable garden together with the museum or participate in creative workshops with material that comes from the museum garden.
