Plantarium theme is: Think Small...and Green

The entrance hall at next month’s Plantarium 2019 (21-23 August, Boskoop) will host a display based on compact living and recreation, combined with experiencing natural surroundings.  


The new buzzword in urban renewal and rural development circles is ‘small’, as in tiny houses' and tiny forests', among other things.


Developments in this area focus extensively on sustainability, and the idea of circularity. Wood is often the first choice when it comes to building material, and the natural appearance is enhanced by green roofs, vertical gardens, and ornamental plants.


The entrance hall is also the starting point for the ecological route that Plantarium has laid out for visitors, taking them past exhibitors promoting interesting products and services in the area of sustainability and health. Visitors can walk the route independently with the help of a map, or they can join a guided tour at fixed times in various languages.


Thanks once again to an initiative by the municipality of Alphen aan de Rijn, Plantarium by Night is being organised for the sixth time on Thursday evening.


This year, the central issues are greenery and health, through the stimulation of which the local authority hopes to reduce the demand for care. Gardeners, housing cooperatives, estate agents, catering businesses and horticultural businesses have been invited to attend on the evening. The programme includes three short lectures, and the evening will end with the Ecological route.


For more information, visit the website.


Plantarium is held on Denemarkenlaan at the International Trade Centre, Boskoop/Hazerswoude. More information can be found here.
