At “Naturnahe Gärten Niederheideweg” on the edge of Spandauer Forst, 26 allotment gardens are cultivated according to ecological criteria.

The shrubs and perennials planted here are mainly indigenous, and no pesticides or mineral fertilisers are used. Fruit and vegetables are also grown and the lack of fences creates the impression of a single, huge garden.

Plants are grown on the roofs of the huts, and ponds and pools offer a variety of habitats and minibiotopes for flora and fauna.

If you’re a city dweller, a hobby gardener or just looking for an oasis, you can visit the eco-garden on Berlin-Brandenburg Open Garden Day (see programme), when guided tours offer an opportunity to take a peek over the imaginary garden wall.
