Mijn naam is Zéger Nieuweboer en ik ben oprichter en eigenaar van het onderwijsbedrijf Learning is growing.nl. Ik ben geboren op een boerderij in Noord-Holland en ik heb gekozen voor een groene opleiding aan de Wageningen Universiteit.

Als stadsboer heb ik ervaring opgedaan in onze biologische Tuin langs Klim en Dal in de stad Arnhem. Ik ben actief lid van de Belgische Vereniging voor Ecologisch Leven en Tuinieren (VELT), Permacultuur Nederland en Slow Food International.

Ik wil graag mijn groene kennis delen om in de stad voedsel te telen en te verwerken. Daarom heb ik een aantal onderwijsproducten gemaakt, afgestemd op de stappen in de voedselstroom van groeien naar consumeren.

The YIMBY (Yes in My Backyard) Festival is an event for people and groups involved – or looking to become involved – in grassroots, locally driven community development in a The Festival is an opportunity for people to gather, spread the word about their work, exchange ideas to effect change and strengthen their networks. It’s a chance to celebrate achievements and identify new challenges and opportunities, in an atmosphere focused on listening, learning and engaging. This one-day event invites community groups from across Arnhem to turn the tables on politicians and policy makers, educating them about the issues that face our city’s communities, as experienced by the community. YIMBY provides an opportunity for neighbours to meet neighbours, residents to meet politicians and politicians to meet community groups in the spirit of people coming together for positive change.

YIMBY Arnhem! groeit.

Featured image

Dit voorjaar bouwen de makers van de zorgboerderij Hoeve Klein Mariëndaal in Arnhem-West YIMBY moestuinbakken voor de nieuwe stadsboeren in de wijken Klarendal, Geitenkamp, Presikhaaf, 't Broek en Malburgen van de stad Arnhem.

Angela Jong heeft haar buurtgenoten in de wijk Klarendal warm gemaakt voor het biologische tuinieren in de stad met YIMBY's. "Het komt mooi uit dat de Gemeente Arnhem 50% van de aanschafprijs bijdraagt door de groene subsidieregeling De Eetbare Stad". Bart van Dalsem van de Hoeve Klein Mariëndaal geeft aan: "Door de lokale sponsoring door de bedrijven Welkoop Elst en De Bolster kunnen we de YIMBY;s leveren met biologische moestuinaaarde en biologische zaden"

Zéger Nieuweboer heeft met zijn groene onderwijsbedrijf learningisgrowing.nl al acht jaar ervaring met de begeleiding van YIMBY Arnhem! "In de periode 2013-2020 zie je dat nieuwe stadsboeren starten met een YIMBY moestuinbak en doorgroeien naar een biologische voedseltuin". https://lnkd.in/eYbrQiH

THE YIMBY EXPERIENCE!

Featured image

THE YIMBY Yes-In-My-Back-Yard EXPERIENCE! is a bottom-up movement aiming at small scale food growing in cities. THE YIMBY EXPERIENCE! started in 2013 in the city of Arnhem in the Netherlands. The YIMBY EXPERIENCE! is expanding with the support of the city of Arnhem and local sponsors.

Eight years of THE YIMBY EXPERIENCE! shows the empowerment of citizens.: Citizens who started with a small food platform have grown to larger urban food growers. Citizens are more aware of the relation between season and growing and adapt their buying of seasonal food in the supermarket. Citizens gained green growing knowledge and have more green connections in their neighbourhood.
