Berlin´s (secret) garden
In the vibrant Berlin neighbourhood, Kreuzberg, you can find the Prinzessinnengärten (Princess Gardens), a mobile urban farm. The garden project was launched in 2009 at a site which had been a wasteland for over half a century. The once hidden and forgotten corner made place for a little urban garden adventure : Fruit, vegetables and herbs are being grown in wooden boxes, milk cartons, ....and everything is organic - no pesticides allowed. During winter the mobile garden moves into the Eisenbahnmarkthalle, an old covered market in Kreuzberg.
You can walk through the garden and have a drink or a snack, made out of fresh garden vegetables and herbs of course. Last week they even organised a flea market in the garden.
The Berlin mobile garden is worth a visit. Please visit the website if you want to find out where to find the garden or how to participate in the project: prinzessinnengarten
