Activities per year
Spiel/Feld Marzahn (2011-4) is an urban agriculture project including project design, implementation, project management and dissemination of results. Its aim is to establish community-led food growing on a redundant urban site in a Berlin housing estate. It is a participatory project between landscape architecture students of the Technical University Berlin, the planning department of the council of the Berlin borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf and local actors on site. A special stakeholder focus is on building the project for and with a neighbouring primary school.The project investigates relationships between environmental education / ecological literacy and urban agriculture, between different forms of learning and the spatial consequences for regenerated urban and architectural sites. The project's aim is to instigate the spatially effective, food-productive use of a brownfield site and at the same time to strengthen local engagement and offer lifestyle choices.At the moment, the project consists of a 600 m2 food growing field, a purpose-built shed, a composting site and an emerging group of local gardeners.
