A generous award from Gemeente Amsterdam via the NME Fonds, has enabled the River of Herbs Schools Project to get underway this year. It funds the creation of course materials and training and ongoing support for ten local primary schools.
River of Herbs received subsidies from the Dutch government in 2013, 2014 and 2015 via Groen en Doen, to encourage volunteering in the green sector. This funded the training of many people; teaching them how to plan, set up, maintain and use urban herb meadows. It also enabled this website to be developed and for us to take on projects such as Frankedael Orchards and the Volksbond project.
Thanks to Sam and Fran, we now have an improved website, logo, seed packet stamp
and other beautiful things, to help the River of Herbs grow.
We greatly appreciate their continued support and ethical social enterprise discount.
Lynn Shore, who runs the River of Herbs project also runs
Urban Herbology, which is about urban foraging
and using city herbs.
Thank you to our friends at City Plot Amsterdam for the tip about Groen en Doen funding in 2012. It really helped this dream spring to life. City Plot also partners with us on the Amsterdam River of Herbs edible/wildlife corridor and schools project.
