Ten Best Spring Events in Brussels to Embrace the Start of the Season

Spring Events in Brussels

We’re in March, which means one thing: the changing of the seasons. Yes, Spring has nearly sprung, and we’ll say goodbye to winter on the 20th of this month and hello to spring events.  

For many, Spring symbolises renewal or a time to reset and refocus after a never-ending winter. 

As the world wakes up around us, reconnect with your sense of adventure and embrace Spring’s full potential. Take full advantage of the rising temperatures with these top ten Brussels Spring events. 

Adopt and Transform a Plant at La Tricoterie

Celebrate the power of nature by adopting a plant! With La Tricoterie and ATRAP (Adopt and Transform a Plant), you can learn to grow seedlings into thriving adult plants during spring in Brussels.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a novice, this unique project encourages everyone to connect with the environment. Over two engaging workshops, experience the joys of cultivating thyme, sage, and other herbs from scratch. The first focuses on sowing healthy seedlings and nurturing them. While it matures, your adopted plant will thrive under professional care at La Tricoterie. The second lesson culminates in potting your own plant, ready to take home and treasure.

Another highlight is harvesting flowers for potential medicinal purposes. In a festive spring ceremony with others, you’ll learn about distillations, macerates, and ointments.
