Begrüne Deine Stadt

A plea for the gardens to return to the city

Whether on the balcony or in hanging milk cartons on the window - we can grow fresh organic vegetables, salads and herbs on every small area of the city. We are making our cities greener, producing food locally, protecting the environment and bringing people together.

The ten short films on "Begrüne deine Stadt" show how this works using Berlin as an example. In addition there are background information and instructions for reading and DIY.
