The Urban Gardening project has been active since 22.09.2020. Since then, the Global Shapers Freiburg Hub have made progress in promoting and educating the community, partnering up with local organizations, helping interested individuals to take on urban gardening by giving away plants and educating them with a video series on how to care for their plants.
Urban gardening is the process of growing plants of all types in an urban environment/space. It is not only a sustainable method to grow your own ‘healthy food’, but also it is an innovative approach towards an environmentally friendly urban lifestyle. Urban gardening also helps to make the city green and promote the city to become self-sufficient with the food supply. The plants that are grown under the urban gardening concept are not only limited to fruits and vegetables but flowers or any other plants can also be considered as well. The plants can be grown with the intention of using them for your own self-consumption and satisfaction or with the aim of selling them at your local farmer’s market or even giving them for free for the people in need.
