Netherland School Bans Parents from Dropping Kids Off By Car

Posted on November 19, 2009 at 8:30pm 1 Comment

A school in the Netherlands recently banned vehicles from stopping at its curb which in turn discouraged parents to drop their children off by car. The Netherlands already has the highest rate of bicycle commuters so this probably wasn't a huge shift in the structure of the community, but still very neat to see.

Check out the delightful video! It will make you want to get out and ride to fanciful music!…

To Whomever Is Interested,



For the past couple years we’ve had an unconventional dream (to create a small, sustainable homestead with a humble cob dwelling) that we’ve gone about trying to fulfill in a conventional way (searching real estate ads and agents, dealing with financial institutions, etc.), perhaps that is why we have come up short thus far. There are many more details to our dream, but that is the concise version, I don’t want to overwhelm you with the details of my… Continue

Deanna! Thanks for adding all the school garden work-party events. Its such a great way for gardeners to spread the joy & abundance.

Thank you also for your comment contributions to the Organic Gardeners group!
Every circumstance of gardener, garden location & mission is different, and I appreciate you sharing your perspectives!......I like ease of the straw too! Especially in gardens where helpers don't know whats a weed & whats a young plant.

Deanna,

I had fun helping to move 22 yards of compost with you, although my back is feeling it now... it looks like you left some feedback on my Wendell Berry summary that I haven't read yet; so we were close to meeting online. Keep me posted on further school garden events etc. I'd like to help when I can. Nice to meet you and take care.

Hi Again!, I remember now how we are both part of the network of folks who have worked with children & school gardening.
I wonder if you, would be interested in posting a forum/discussion on our transition site to share the vision and the current progress. I know that Tristen is also very interested in creating a group - 'School Gardening Cooperative', which would be comprised of schools around Bellingham who desire gardens within their campuses. I'm thinking you & him & Laura Platt at Common Threads may already be connected?
I was not able to attend the October meeting for the Whatcom County School Garden Collective. Did you attend? I have not yet read any summary of the meeting.
