PROJECT OVERVIEW
The project has been initiated by an independent group.
In brief, Cityplot aims to heighten human awareness of nature’s cycles across urban areas. The Cityplot team develops private and public gardens, advising on design, the choice of plants and the development process.
The project “CityPlot” is developed by Robbert Bouman with less than 10 people, of which less than 50% being volunteers.

LOCATION
The project takes shape in multiple locations of the city such as roof gardens, balcony gardens, public spaces and backyards.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The project is already commercially established, focusing on the production of grow kits, seeds, design & advice.
We usually use grow kits as growing technique(s) and we distribute our products via the internet.

THE PROJECT AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION. PROBLEMS, NEEDS AND SOLUTIONS
In the development of the project, we had no specific implementation problems. We did not secure political support.
During the implementation, we did not face any regulatory barriers.
From the economic point of view, the project is mostly sustainable. In particular, we benefit from private funds, such as personal finance.
In order to develop, we will need funding, people/resources, improved visibility and commissioned work.
