Sign up for a beautiful façade garden?! On 14 May it is the 2nd round action façade gardens in the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat

It's time for the second round! On April 9th we have already laid out a lot of beautiful façade gardens in the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat. We will do so again on 14 May.

We do this to make the street more resistant to the heavy rain showers that climate change brings. If you add up all those facades of the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat, you get the longest façade garden in Europe! You can also exchange tiles from your backyard for free plants on May 14. The more greenery in the neighborhood, the better. 

Why is this so important?  

Climate change leads to, amongst others, dryer and hotter summers, as well as heavier rainfall in short timeframes. In the winter, rain can persist for longer periods of time. Extreme weather increases the risk of flooded streets, basements and crawl spaces. Rainwater nuisance and heat stress are current problems in the Noorderbeekdwarsstraat and the rest of the Hague.   

Therefore, we help residents to green their backyard, street or area with Operation Steenbreek. This can be done by constructing facade gardens or detiling backyards and schoolyards. The tiles are exchanged for native and organic plants. Native plants provide a source of nutrition and shelter for many birds, butterflies and insects. This will consequently make the city a comfortable place for man and animal.
