The peoples gardens

Rolf Coppens
July 30th 2008

Volkstuintjes (or peoples gardens) might be a typical Dutch / European tradition, offering gardening space in urban environments in which people don't have their own gardens. It's a nice tradition from the time that people liked to had the time to grow their own food. Might be on a comeback when the food prices keep rising though...

The concept of DIY fruit and vegetable production is next nature enough, but Dutch artist Annechien Meier came up with the mobile Volkstuin.

That's just sad.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
