do gardening together
Each gardener gets his or her own bed to grow plants in. The garden shed and equipment can be used by anyone. Moreover there are regular meetings and all of the decisions concerning the garden are made together.
Here is a "meeting-place" for communication and interaction between people with and without a migrant background. Our garden brings many different social milieus, generations and ways of live together. While gardening people get into contact and become friends.
The cross-cultural garden is an interface between Social, Nature and Culture. While doing gardening, sharing a picnic or celebrate parties you can find out similarities and differences and learn to deal with. As a result a mutual comprehension as well as a appreciation for each other can be built.
Urban ecology plays an important role in our project. The cross-cultural garden uses urban open spaces and produces a strong sensitivity for our environment. So new methods can be tested, which sets impulses for transcultural way of environmental education.
