Yes, the weather in Amsterdam is always different and unpredictable. So always bring layers of clothing. However against a storm like yesterday, no clothing can protect.
Hundreds of trees fell over in the city, causing dangerous situations. Canals and streets were blocked and even some cars were distroyed. It only took a few hous for this unusual summerstorm to do a lot of damage. Trams did not run in the afternoon and many people just stayed indoors.
Enthusiasts have tens of thousands of hemp seeds planted yesterday in Amsterdam’s parks and gardens. The project, called ‘Eden’ is an action against the dulling of Amsterdam. It is funded by the Awesome Foundation.
About forty kilos of seeds were handed out in Vondelpark. In groups, the seeds were sown on foot and by bicycle through the city. Not only in the Vondelpark, but also in restaurants and in the gardens of the Rijksmuseum.
The project is an action against the dulling of Amsterdam, says Noah of the collective. “Gentrification in general, actually; the whores disappear, coffee shops must close. Look, every great city is constantly changing (..) but Amsterdam has something magical. If that disappears, and then we get yogurt bars in return, that’s just too bad. “
When the plants come out, the weed is actually smokable… Tens of thousands of marijuana plants sown in Amsterdam parks and flower beds
