Gardening the wild wanted to exploit an abandoned piece of land at the heart of a dense office neighbourhood.


A number of punctual actions emerged on Friche Eggevoort: targeted gardening actions, planting of nectar-rich or ancient species; regular observation meetings with experts and amateurs passionate about fauna and flora; plant taxonomy (Herbier Eggevoort: subjective census of what one finds there as plants, in the course of the year 2014- 2015.)


Spontaneous species like nettles, sycamore maples and bindweed tend to proliferate and prevent the development of a richer diversity on derelict pieces of land. So, PUM proposed a minimal management method that avoided exhausting the environment and took advantage of available resources for the development of biodiversity.
