farm in the city

A few weeks ago, I discovered that a small children’s farm (kinderboederij) in my neighborhood accepts donated vegetable and fruit scraps for the animals. Living in an apartment in the middle of Amsterdam doesn’t leave much opportunity for gardening and definitely doesn’t allow for a compost pile. At the farm, they keep goats, incredibly large hogs, rabbits, gerbils, two calves, chickens, a cat, and more. I’m so happy to be able to donate the leftovers to these cute city animals instead of throwing them away.
