It attracts the press from all over the globe to this Berlin neighbourhood mainly inhabited by immigrants. Journalists from The New York Times, La Repubblica, the Norwegian Aftenposten and even CNN have already been there.
It all started when Marko Klausen and Robert Shaw came up with an idea to plant a public vegetable garden among the concrete jungle. In fact, Shaw had borrowed the idea of mobile garden when he lived and studied in Cuba. At present the garden can boast over 400 sorts and species of various vegetables, herbs and other plants. People come here to chat with fellow thinkers and unwind surrounded by potato, tomato, carrot plants. You can take a stroll, listen to a lecture, take part in a discussion or listen to a concert here. Certainly, you'll be able to buy bio seeds, books on urban gardening, as well as have a snack at a vegetarian cafe with reasonable prices.
