Rewild is a hands-on course, transforming Utrecht and providing participants with expertise in permaculture design and green city development.


We promote an understanding of regenerative practices, equipping young changemakers to bring back nature to urban areas.


Using community centers as examples, participants explore permaculture with an urban twist, learn about resilient cities, and engage in placemaking.


Together we plant new green spots and connect locals with nature and each other to create a 'rewilded' city.


Citymaking feat. Permaculture

The rewild course is a unique learning opportunity jointly designed by permaculture design expert Michiel Busz, Buurthuis de Leeuw, DOCK, and nice here. 

As a group, you will discover the sweet spot between citymaking and permaculture using a hands-on and case-oriented approach, all while getting to know local initiatives and benchmark projects.

The big vision, you ask?

To empower local citymakers with green literacy, enabling them to turn public spaces into thriving green oases maintained by the community.


We aim not just to create but to shape places based on community needs, ensuring sustainability even after our involvement. Ultimately turning each Buurthuis into an example of regenerative practices and an education hub for green city design.
