Project description:

In the project "Forest gardens as long-term, multifunctional land use in urban areas", the framework conditions as well as potentially suitable areas and actor constellations are examined, which enable the implementation of the novel concept of forest gardens in urban areas. In the preliminary study, the project concentrates on detailed site assessments in Berlin and the development of suitable framework conditions for nationwide transferability. In addition to Berlin, one of the main projects of the project is to implement urban forest gardens in two to three other partner cities in order to investigate their transferability throughout Germany.
