Building Communities with Green Walls at the Spinnerij

Farm2Future is a World of Walas company that focuses on developing systems for fresh and healthy food in cities through integrated solutions. We think about production systems for food, waste and the use of renewable raw materials. We try to make difficulties about nutrition and pest control achievable in a financially, socially and ecologically sustainable way.

At Spinnerij Oosterveld our colleague Zilal Suleiman from Farm2Future has come up with a simple but effective solution for reuse and making spaces more green. Near the laboratory in room 1.28 she has set up the “Green Wall” in collaboration with the Spinnerij colleagues. A beautiful product that has been made through a heart-warming collaboration.

In the past few weeks, Zilal and the team have worked on setting up the Green Wall. Everyone contributed to the result in his or her own way; a real team effort!

The Green Wall consists of a total of 112 recycled plastic bottles filled with herbs and plants such as mint, thyme, strawberries, basil, parsley, lettuce and peppers. During the day the wall is illuminated by lighting that has specifically been developed for the growth of the plants. In addition, a smart system is being installed so that the plants automatically receive water.

Besides the production of food and the improvement of the indoor climate, the system, made by Zilal, also looks great and we are very proud of it. So if you’re visiting the Spinnerij, we invite you to take a look at our Green Wall!
