Community garden and planting project in the city

– Finished June 2020 –

In cooperation with the municipality of Derik and twin city association Berlin Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg-Derik. The project has consisted on the restoration of a riverbed going through the city of Derik and on the realization of communal gardens in three different neighborhoods.

After many difficulties naming war, lack of material because of the embargo and intense floods in the spring of 2019, the project got to an end in mid summer 2020. The riverbed has been cleaned and trees and plants have already been installed. The three neighborhood gardens have also been cleaned and have been given to the neighborhoods. The inhabitants take care of the gardens and a part of each is reserved for vegetable gardens let free for the poorer families who don’t own a piece of land.
