Tilburg University and NRC Handelsblad launch crowdsourcing project
Starting today, NRC Handelsblad and Tilburg University are inviting garden owners across the country to leave a small piece of their garden well alone for four seasons. This means let all weeds grow, let fallen leaves and branches be, no watering, etc. Participants will discover what happens in this piece of garden and what it does to themselves. Researchers from Tilburg University will analyze the data that participants share, and the newspaper will report on this.
Tilburg University is participating
“De Wilde Tuin” (Wilding the garden) at Tilburg University
Tilburg University and Dutch daily newspaper NRC Handelsblad have set up a crowdsourcing project called De Wilde Tuin (Wilding the garden). As part of this project, garden owners throughout the Netherlands will let nature take its course on a small patch of their garden and discover the effects of wilding on the garden and on themselves. Tilburg University has joined the initiative and is wilding a patch of its gardens on campus.
