A creative outlet for young people
Over the last few months, Timberland have been working closely with the local community and Mary Asmellash from Kazerne Reigersbos, to bring new life to a previously unused space with an ambitious urban greening project.
Maru and the community have worked hard to bring this shared vision to life, creating a city garden for and by the community. A space intended to empower creativity and entrepreneurship, offering youth a springboard to a greener and better future.
Working with the community
The ambitious transformation of a concrete space into a lush green haven has only just started and is situated within the South East of Amsterdam. The creative community of this area is an important pillar of creativity among Dutch youth.
‘’Per square metre I think Southeast is one of the most diverse spaces on earth’’
It’s a place full of creativity but with a lack of opportunities. The Jam Garden will be a green vibrant place for them to come together, share ideas and host all sorts of creative events – from gardening workshops to poetry slams and jam sessions. A place to be proud of.
