Tour & Taxis is part of a large regeneration project spearheaded by the world-renowned Bureau Bas Smets, and SUGi is delighted to be collaborating with them & Nicolas de Brabandère in this endeavour. The development will see a new residential neighbourhood in the centre of Brussels with 12 hectares of parkland. Our Tour & Taxis Forest will be situated within this parkland.
This SUGi Pocket Forest will support biodiversity in a highly urbanised area and create a corridor where wildlife can thrive. The density of the forest will help to reduce air pollution and allow local residents to breathe cleaner air. It will also provide a sheltered, shady space to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, offering some respite from busy, city life.
Would you like to join us as a volunteer to plant a few trees? The soil has been prepared so that planting requires little effort. Then come and meet us on Friday or Saturday between 10h and 15h, meeting point at the monument of human rights in the park of Tour & Taxis.
Registration is not necessary. Please wear good shoes and if you have a spade — bring it along. There will also be one available on site.
