De Site project in Ghent

The Site (De site) is a meeting point for local residents in Ghent of different population group, nationalities and people of different ages. This kind of meeting place is created not only by providing the necessary infrastructure (including a 3000 m² urban horticulture plot, mini kitchen gardens, a multi-purpose sports terrain, containers to provide material storage and work space, etc.), but also by developing projects with appropriate content (relating to both the neighbourhood and beyond).
