In the latest issue of the magazine GROEN (for professionals in spatial planning for cities and landscapes) I write in an article about the development of the Reitse Tuin.
This biodiversity garden in Tilburg has developed into a species rich oasis in the city and an attraction for locals and passers-by. It is also a place that helps Tilburg adapt to a changing climate. The article covers the initiation and development process and takes stock of progress and achievements.
I am proud to have been at the cradle of this piece of urban nature, together with Van Spaendonck Ondernemingshuis, Tilburg municipality, Van Hall Larenstein University, Brouwers Groenaannemers and the Province of Noord-Brabant.
