When Rubens purchased the land for the house in 1610, he relied on Willem and Jasper, his gardeners, to tend to his garden and on several other people who lived nearby to plant the garden with flowers and plants. His maid Willemyne used the fruit and vegetables as ingredients for the food that she cooked for the Rubens family.
The garden of the Rubens House was a garden of the people and will remain thus in the future. To plant the new museum garden, the Rubens House is counting on helping hands, who want to see the garden thrive. Everyone can help Rubens’s new garden grow.
You can fund flowers from 10 euros.
