On Friday morning September 9th, Marthe and Mellany brought a nice visit to the Vlindertuin in Arnhem to share some of the research results of the PARTIGAN project. In the beautiful community garden full of vegetables and flowers, we talked about the meaning of such green citizen initiatives for people’s health and wellbeing. Namely, these places contribute to social cohesion, feelings of connection to nature, a boost in self-confidence, physical activity and much more! It was nice to notice that the volunteers from the garden were interested and enthusiastic to hear about it.
