Prinzessinnengärten is considered the most beautiful urban kitchen garden in the world. Covering 6000 square meters in the heart of Kreuzberg, in Berlin, the space comprises mobile vegetable patches, an area for bees, a biodynamic cafeteria, a play zone in the trees, a little circus, a flea market and a library of books on sustainability (housed inside a shipping container). Today everyone is talking about it, but when they arrived, four years ago, the members of the Nomadisch Grün collective found nothing on the site but garbage and rubble. The book tells the story of this fantastic undertaking: from the active involvement of local residents in the search for old varieties of plants to be cultivated to the processes of integration between agricultural practices and use of the Web. An invaluable source of information for all new urban farmers and a thorough investigation of a rapidly spreading model of development. Published by Dumont Buchverlag.
