am studWednesday 29th of April a group of 22 food science students from USA that are participating in an exchange program with the Metropolitan University College in Copenhagen arrived with their bikes to Byhaven to hear about how such a place could be possible in the middle of a crowded city.

Most of them had seen urban gardens before, but few with the openness and diversity of Byhaven2200. The visit lasted around 1 hour where the first 30 minutes were history and development of the garden and the other 30 minutes they looked, tasted, smelled and listened about the different plants we could find in the garden. They were fascinated by the new flavors they tried and they were glad to be allowed to take some herbs along for making tea later that day.
