Breitensee, an area in Vienna’s Penzing (14th) district, now has its first community garden, established under the motto “Growing Together!” and with the aim of growing both plants and community relationships.
ICEC partner GB* is working together with the organisation “Gemeinschaftsgarten Matznergarten” to create a new urban space of encounter, with the first season concentrating on getting to know the neighbourhood and fostering relationships with the local population.
The Matznergarten community garden will be one of the Vienna ICEC team‘s Urban Living Labs, and an example of a bottom-up initiated space of encounter. It follows an ongoing trend in Vienna which has seen several such community gardens established in recent years.
