Internship Guerilla Gardening

Help us influence an uncontrolled green space and grow plants in the public space around Mediamatic. If you have a green thumb and you want to contribute in the shaping of an urban garden and park area, Mediamatic is the perfect place for you.

We are looking for people who are passionate about urban gardening. We have the opportunity to take care of a green parcel in the centre of Amsterdam, and we want it to be a valuable and beautiful space, where plants and flowers can grow.
