BiodiverCity – Bring the Garden to the People

BRINGING THE GARDEN TO YOU!

You live in the city but want to have access and learn more about planting your own urban jungle? Then this is the project for you!

We want to raise awareness on biodiversity loss and show people how they can implement biodiversity in their daily (urban) lives.

What awaits you:

  • 10-14 days lasting tour through viennese districts with our movable plant oasis (cargo bike/cart)
  • 5 on-site workshops, one at each location, including:
    • Workshop 1:  Vertical Gardening in the City
    • Workshop 2: Permaculture in urban areas
    • Workshop 3: Exploring urban biodiversity
    • Workshop 4: Nature-oriented gardening
    • Workshop 5: Insect hotel construction

How can you take part?

We would be happy if you could participate in one of our workshops or just visit our plant oasis at one of the 5 locations. Please find registration down below. More detailed information on these locations will follow. In case of bad weather (heavy rain, storm etc.) the alternative dates apply.

We would also be happy about every assistance with bulding up our mobile garden or the watering of the plants. We are still looking for easily movable seating accommodations and plants for the mobile. We would be happy about every donation. If you are interested in helping us, please write to biodivercity@gmx.at or miriam.prager9@gmail.com.
