Boulevard des Fruits on Place Fontainas

I recently paid a visit to Moeder Lambic and was pleased to see planters out front, on Place Fontainas, for the "Portes Ses Fruits" project.

The project installs fruit trees on public spaces around Brussels, contributing to both the vibrancy of the spaces and the local food system.

Many of the trees in the planters are for Schaerbeek Cherries, a type of cherries used for making Kriek beer.  Last time I checked, the project was in partnership with Cantillon Brewery to make Kriek out of the cherries, and Moeder Lambic was the chosen place for special tasting events.

Grow cherries out front, drink cherry beer inside.  It sounds like something that could happen in the countryside, but it’s happening right in the city.
