Directly beside the Havel are the seven circular fields of the Bauerngarten Havelmathen. This project is an excellent alternative for anyone without much time for gardening or who just wants to try it out.

For one gardening season or longer you can become the proud owner of your own strip of soil, which is already tilled, sown and planted in the spring. All you have to do is tend to your own segment-shaped mini-field, and watering is also organised.

As the seasons pass you can harvest your own tasty organic vegetables, not just humble carrots and radishes, but also more uncommon produce such as chard and pak choi. One of the aims of the project is to empower consumers to produce some of their food themselves.

The garden project was initiated by young, committed farmers who are happy to help any newcomer with tips and tricks.
