Cultural exchange in a Community Garden

Learning with, from and about each other!  – Our Common Garden

In the SALVIA Garden, DOZ e.V. and gemeinsam grün e.V. are starting a new project: Our Common Garden. The aim is the participation and emancipation of people and families with a refugee or migration background through their involvement in the creation of a community garden.

There will be workshops on gardening topics, such as food cultivation and harvesting, biodiversity in the city and the use of natural resources, as well as cooking events. We also plan to celebrate festivals together in the garden.

We would like to address people and families with and without a migration background who are interested in gardening and intercultural exchange.

No experience in gardening yet? No problem! Through the planned workshops, open encounters and the creation of teams on different garden topics, we want to learn with each other, from each other and about each other!

Besides German, we also speak English, Spanish, French and Arab and would like to include people in our team speaking other languages such as Turkish, Russian or Ukrainian. Do you speak one of these languages and are interested in supporting us?

The project started on 1 April and the first activities in the garden are already in the planning.  Are you interested in joining us or do you need more information? p.sanchez@doz.international (Project coordinator: Paula Sánchez Alandete)
