On tour in Rijnvliet

18 april 2024

Would you like to learn more about living in a food forest? Join us, as part of a satellite event of the New European Bauhaus Festival, on a guided tour through Rijnvliet, the biggest edible neighborhood in The Netherlands. Be tempted to taste everything edible in the  neighborhood, berries, leaves, flowers... and experience what it does for a community, how it creates different social connections than an average residential area.

NEw european bauhaus festival
The New European Bauhaus Festival takes place from 9 till 13 April 2024. The festival is organized by the European Commission in cooperation with the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The aim is to invite everyone to embark on a 5-days journey of creativity and collaboration exchange on joint visions with citizens of Europe and think about the European living environment we all envision. Take part in Forum, Fair and Fest in Brussels, watch the Festival online or attend a Satellite events across Europe and beyond.

Rijnvliet
Rijnvliet, next to Utrecht, is the first and largest edible neighborhood of the Netherlands.
The 15ha food forest enhances the ecosystem services of the area, including water management, heat reduction and air purification. The abundant green and blue spaces are harmoniously blended with the built environment. The quality of life is enhanced by providing a rich human experience, high biodiversity and extensive habitat for birds, bats and other species.

We organize three tours for different audiences to ensure you get the most out of it. Each tour provides both English and Dutch language support. Reserve your spot below. Registration is mandatory and there are a limited number of spots available.

Agenda

Design research, developing knowledge, and implementing it in built projects form the foundation of Felixx's work. Sharing this knowledge contributes to accelerating the transition to a sustainable, climate-adaptive world. That's why Felixx participates in various events in various ways, from roundtable discussions to trade fairs, from biennials to festivals. We are eager to share our knowledge and expertise in the field of Nature-based Solutions and climate adaptation. Periodically, we also organize events at our office in Rotterdam.
