INVITE: A Productive Urban Green platform for Berlin, Germany
Today, the Working Group City & Food [AG Stadt & Ernährung], on behalf of Berlin’s (Germany) Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection [Senatsverwaltung für Umwelt, Verkehr und Klimaschutz], sent out an invitation to Berlin-based community gardeners to the first public presentation of “Plattform Produktives Stadtgrün“ – Gestaltung und Planung des öffentlichen Grüns [“Platform Productive Urban Green” – Design and planning of open green space]. A key component of the platform will be the website “Community Gardens [Gemeinschaftsgärten]” intended to become an innovative tool of exchange and networking for and by Berlin’s community gardeners. At the same time, the platform aims to make visible and open up the participatory process in the development of a city-wide strategy for urban and intercultural gardens and allotments.
Katrin Bohn is a founder member of the Working Group City & Food and, with Beatrice Walthall, accompanies the project for this group.
If you are a Berlin-based community gardener and wish to attend this meeting, please do get in touch.
