The DakAkker

Posted on

A wonderful rooftop initiative. Atop the Schieblock structure, the DakAkker (‘roof acre’), the first ever large-scale harvestable roof in The Netherlands has been realised. Here, vegetables, fruit and herbs are grown, and honeybees are also kept there.
The DakAkker is the largest urban roof farm in Europe that uses soil directly upon its roof surface. The DakAkker is in operation as a trial installation to experiment with various methods of vegetated roofing.
