Urban Farming: Roof-Top Garden in Berlin

Urban Farming: Roof Top Garden in Berlin

The urban farming project Himmelbeet (sky patch) is currently planning an extensive roof-top garden over Berlin! On the top of a former multi-storey car park in Berlin-Wedding, the nonprofit project is going to open an open gardening zone as from May 2013…

In addition to the crops a beekeeper will supervise beehives. Workshops, cultural events and a coffee shop will revive the environment. We take a stand for maintaining of regional varieties, and want to grow organically and by the principles of permaculture. Gardening will take place in mobile raised beds. In addition to the community garden space, it will be possible to lease an own bed for a season. (loosely translated)

The entire project is inspired by the famous urban farming project Prinzessinnengärten in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
