"How an elderly home became an unexpected place for innovation"

Student Patrick lives in an elderly home with a few fellow students. He does not pay rent but helps out a few hours a week. Patrick discovered his elderly neighbours have unrecognised collective skills that help him in becoming an innovative urban farmer. He is now growing crops in a container in the garden of their house with his friends and consultants Ans and Harry.

Patrick Stoffer is a Saxion-student who lives between the elderly in a Humanitas nursing home and who’s video about this went viral. Now he's setting up an urban farm at the center of this community.
