The Sint Martens Hof community consists of 20 families of a co-housing project who renovated and rebuilt an urban block in the Sint Marten neighbourhood in Arnhem. They asked us provide ideas for their partly shared community garden that make the garden ‘climate proof’ and sustainable. With a group of 16 BSc thesis students we organized a range of co- design workshops with the inhabitants and their children. Based on the results of these workshops all students generated individual design proposals that were assessed by the community.
