Anderlecht is the third-largest municipality in Brussels. It is known for its urban side, but do you also know its rural side? In addition to parks and ponds, you will find the green and agricultural area of Neerpede located on the outskirts of the town. More and more young vegetable growers are setting up a business there to work towards short and sustainable food chains.
