This year, GroenLinks The Hague is organizing the competition for the greenest balcony, roof terrace or front garden of The Hague for the seventh time. The three best entries win free plants.

Arjen Kapteijns, chairman of the jury: “in a city that is still too petrified, the green oases on balconies, front gardens and roof terraces are indispensable. Green spots in the city make our living environment not only nicer and healthier for people, but also for birds and insects. With this competition we want to show how well The Hague is already doing, but we also want to challenge and inspire other residents of The Hague to go that little bit further. ”

Do you want to win one of the prizes? Then mail a photo,  before 25 August, of your balcony, green facade or roof terrace to groenstebalkon070@gmail.com stating your name and address. The entries will be viewed by a professional jury, who will announce the results on 10 September. Winners will receive a National Garden Voucher worth 50 euros (first place), 30 euros (second place) or 20 euros (third place).
