The Seed is About to Burst!

The Seed is About to Burst!

Op vrijdag 22 juni ga ik samen met een aantal mensen naar de floriade oa. Greetje, Chris10 en Laura gaan mee. Wellicht zijn er nog meer mensen die het leuk vinden om er heen te gaan en zich aan te sluiten. Mijn idee is om dit op een beetje losse basis te doen. Een ieder die het leuk zou vinden kan dan hier zijn naam achterlaten en dat hij/zij eventueel wel mee zou willen. Wellicht kunnen er zo kleine groepjes gevormd worden van mensen die gezamenlijk richting Venlo gaan (carpoolen). Eenmaal in Venlo is het idee dat men wel gezamenlijk op pad kan en mag maar zeker niet hoeft.

Voor wie er interesse in heeft wil ik een moment op de dag kiezen om over de Wilde Weelde Wereld te vertellen en een kleine rondleiding door de tuin te doen. Langs alles wat bloeit en boeit.....

Breeding ground for innovation

In My Green World visitors will find themselves inside a bean that is about to burst open and germinate. The building is 15 metres high and is one of the landmarks of the Floriade Park. The floor of the pavilion is embedded in fertile soil. Visitors will discover a magical world of light, sound, smell and touch. They will pass through a very special landscape and enter the building along with water. Then they will gradually descend past four themes.
