Salt Tas­te Gar­den

The Salt Tas­te Gar­den is the out­co­me of a sustai­na­ble de­vel­op­ment stra­te­gy ba­sed ona ba­lan­ce bet­ween the lands­ca­pe, wa­ter and eco­no­mics. The Salt Tas­te Gar­den may­be un­der­stood as a new lands­ca­pe ty­po­lo­gy which is ba­sed on per­spec­ti­ves of­brac­kish ground­wa­ter or ir­ri­ga­ti­on by salt streams. The salt­wa­ter pro­du­ce ad­dres­se­snew mar­kets, whi­le the lands­ca­pe in­vi­tes new forms of re­cre­a­ti­on. Salt is theen­gi­ne be­hind a sustai­na­ble trans­for­ma­ti­on. The Salt Tas­te Gar­den pro­claims an­ex­pe­ri­men­tal at­ti­tu­de, for the word proef in its Dut­ch na­me means bo­th tas­te and ex­pe­ri­men­tal test. The Gar­de­ners ex­pe­ri­ment in asustai­na­ble, in­no­va­ti­ve way in rai­sing salt­wa­ter and brac­kish wa­ter food crops,and in pro­mo­ting the no­vel tas­tes of the pro­du­ce to a wi­de pu­blic. The lat­ter­could be do­ne by means of a res­tau­rant on lo­ca­ti­on. The Salt Tas­te Gar­den is aplat­form for the de­vel­op­ment of salt­wa­ter cul­ti­va­ti­on me­thods which is­ad­dres­sed to bo­th agri­cul­tu­ral en­tre­pre­neurs and the pu­blic.
