Hof ter Musschen: how colour reflects the passage of time
A natural haven, a farm, a bakery and a windmill… From the colours of the construction materials used in different periods to the colours of the site’s flora and fauna, this tour will give you a fresh perspective on Hof ter Musschen. It will also give you an opportunity to learn about the wheat field that is soon to be planted on the site, injecting it with yet more colour.
The initially announced workshops on poultry fauna have – unfortunately – had to be cancelled due to health and safety measures related to the fight against Coronavirus. The CEBE, a non-profit organisation that manages the Hof ter Musschen, has nevertheless decided to honour the birdlife and its colours through general visits to the site that it is offering as a replacement. In the morning, the focus will be on the house sparrow, which gave its name to the farm but which is no longer there... How can it be brought back?
In cooperation with the Heritage Promotion Department of the Municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe and the Commission de l’Environnement de Bruxelles et Environs/Milieucommissie Brussel en Omgeving (CEBE/MOB).
