June the story so far…

June is here, summer is underway (not that you’d guess) and with a threat of new building plans to develop the ‘roomtuintje oostbos’ terrain looming, (143 apartments, each of 23m2 for students who will be paying €600pm for a temporary contract) the roomtuintje gardeners have been busy.

Here’s a photo gallery of some of the growings on…
