About the research
In 2021, a major water bomb fell in Wallonia, and in recent summers we have constantly struggled with heat waves and periods of drought. But did you know that our gardens can help protect us from the effects of climate change? Provided we turn our gardens into real climate gardens. Valerie Dewaelheyns (KU Leuven) sheds some light on how to do that. Her aim: to explore how we can turn Flemish 'gardeners' into tomorrow's climate gardeners!
