This vertical or urban garden has no soil and is based on a hydroponic system, which uses micronutrients supplied by AkzoNobel to provide important minerals for the plants.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel NV has created a vertical garden that shows the power of urban gardens to rejuvenate (refresh) cities and make lives more livable and exciting. This helps to change an unwelcoming area of cement into a bright and more fascinating space for locality inhabitants.

This garden has no soil and is based on a hydroponic system, which uses micronutrients supplied by the company to provide important minerals for the plants.

Micronutrients are important for hydroponic-based growing systems that don't utilise soil, for example, vertical gardens and ecological greenhouse crops. They are also perfect for urban cultivation, rooftop gardens and empower plants to be grown in areas where space is an issue – a major problem in many cities.

“Making urban parts more enjoyable and friendly is important to our global Human Cities initiative,” he continued. So this vertical garden is an outstanding example of how we can help advance urban surroundings by providing solutions that can bring energy and realism,” said Geert-Jan Beijering, commercial manager for AkzoNobel’s micronutrients business in the Americas.

“There are numerous open doors for our micronutrient product family to offer important, (valuable) solutions to the fast urbanisation trend and we are focused on assuming a key part in this,” added Peter Kuijpers, general manager of AkzoNobel's chelates and micronutrients business.
