Comments On - Urban Farming in Amsterdam

I am an organic farmer in hops and veggies in California. I plan on being in Amsterdam in October or November this year. Any way I can spend some time helping out on any of the urban farms?

Rick, is there a website I can check out that would allow me to find and contact small farms near Amsterdam? I live in California but have been looking into a change and would like to know more of what Amsterdam has to offer as far as jobs and farming.

We need more of these gardens where people and learn about gardening.

Love the report and the concept of an urban farming university. Wish there was something like that here.

The idea of learning from the "experts" and then realizing that you really do have to rely on yourself is not only practical, it's liberating. The fact that I get to choose when, what and where I want to grow is not restrictive in any way.

Thanks for sharing another success story. Good news is always the best news.

Rick, you are a funny guy. You are the only person that I know that is a part of a community garden .... in another country. It does sound like a great concept to be a part of but really in another country? I visited Holland once back in 1970. It was during the time I was stationed in Germany and visited Holland when all the Tulips were in bloom. It was quite amazing to see miles and miles and miles of fields filled with Tulips interspersed with windmills. My first wife and I took the canal tour and saw all the sights in Amsterdam. It was a great experience filled with wonderful memories. I'm sure you will let us know about your return visits to the community garden experiences. Have a great Italian day.
