Princess Beatrix also had a full program on Wednesday. In the morning the princess started visiting the community garden. Through the Hòfinan Ser’i Otrobanda initiative, Fundashon Ser’i Otrobanda has established community gardens in the Otrobanda district of Willemstad to promote self-reliance and healthy eating habits for local residents. Locals can grow their own fruits and vegetables in these gardens. This is nice and healthy, but also very convenient. This project is supported by the Orange Fund.
