belgium flanders: car transformed into vegetable garden

Friends of the Earth Bruxsel (the Dutch and French speaking local group of FoE in Brussels) converted a scrap car into a vegetable garden, and parked it in front of the Brussels stock exchange during the week of mobility (16th to 22nd September).

The activists used the garden car to draw attention to the fact that the space that is taken up by cars in our cities could be used for urban gardens or other collective uses of space.

A selection of photos of the car, plus more explanation about the project is available here.
