The town governing board, "Greenness Service",
wants to stimulate private initiatives
to grow plants. Citizens can receive a
"greenness check" for placing flower boxes
in their windows. The value of the check
depends on the length of the box and there
is a maximum of 25 euros availble.
In autumn, citizens can register to obtain
10 winter plants to put in thier boxes. There
are a limited number of plants, so they
are distributed according to this principle,
"he who comes first, first grinds".
