What is a living garden?
A living garden is a garden with more functions than a standard garden, with terrace, lawn and border. A living garden means that there are many plants and flowers that attract insects. One creates more biodiversity with a living garden. It is also good for people: it is a resting place, a meeting place, a place to enjoy the greenery. Also bird houses scan be found.
The garden has been designed and created by Terra students Sander Bijman, Axel Hulleman, Niels Schriel and Gerben Zantingh in the context of SDG Goal 15:
- Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat and reverse desertification and land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
- Take urgent and decisive action to limit the degradation of natural habitats, halt the loss of biodiversity and, by 2020, protect and prevent endangered species.
