It is a community garden located between the Hogendijk and de Krimp, close to the Czaar Peter house. Besides being a painter, Monet also loved food. He collected 6 notebooks with recipes. These Monet recipes are the starting point of this garden. In this garden the ingredients are grown of Monet recipes. In the summer we harvest the vegetables and fruit and cook together with the neighbourhood. In the summer its a nice location to sit and enjoy the birds and quiet in a busy centre. The Monettuin was started by Bas Husslage in March 2011. less
