TALK OF THE TOWN As soon as winter comes to an end, the Stadtgarten (city garden) on Köpenicker Straße 60 will launch its second season in April 2018. At Neue Grünstraße 13-14, also in the district of Mitte, the first garden involved in Vattenfall’s “Pflanz was!” (“Plant something!”) initiative is already preparing itself for its third season. During opening hours, the gardens are open to all, with every Berliner invited to do some gardening or just relax in the green space. Urban gardening has been an important trend in the capital for many years now. Not least because more and more green space is disappearing thanks to the boom in new residential buildings. As a major energy supplier in Berlin, Vattenfall is committed to generating more green spaces and cohesion. Indeed, the core idea behind urban gardening underscores the importance of community. Garden managers, as well as landscape gardeners and Vattenfall employees provide expert support to urban gardeners on site. Numerous residents drop by on a regular basis. Families in particular use urban gardens to give their big-city children a chance to learn where tomatoes and lettuce come from. Everything visitors need to do their gardening is available free of charge from the garden managers – from the plants to the shovels, rakes, watering cans, gloves and hats. Visitors can also bring their own plants. During gardening season, there are also a number of workshops on different gardening themes. And for those who can’t come by in person, everyone can watch the gardening professionals Marc and Thomas in their YouTube series “Die Spreegärtner” and get useful tips and tricks for your own garden or balcony.
