Crowdfunding garden: 99% of goal reached!

On 5 October, we festively opened the FASoS garden and officially launched a crowdfunding to be able to decorate the garden.

Colleagues and students donated to the garden en masse. Besides that, the FASoS ICT department sold IT equipment, and donated all proceeds to the garden crowdfunding; an amazing €3800!

Thank you to everyone who has donated, and a special thank you to the FASoS ICT department. Thanks to your donations, we have reached 99% of our goal so far.

Join the festive opening of the FASoS garden!

On Wednesday 5 October at 15.30, we will festively open the FASoS garden (at the back of FASoS, in front of the parking lot). Enjoy a drink and a bite served by Bandito, stroll through the garden, and hear all about the plans we still have to make the garden even more enjoyable.

We are very grateful to the faculty for having covered the basic costs of transforming the concrete space behind FASoS into a garden. To be able to decorate the garden with, for example, benches and insect hotels, we will be officially launching a crowdfunding project during the opening of the garden.
