Common Grounds

Since 2009 Elizabeth, Caroline and Marco have been active in establishing and running Prinzessinnengarten,  a social, ecological and urban garden in the heart of Berlin. They have recently founded an association called Common Grounds e.V.

Building on their experiences working with community gardens they are developing a forum that encourages ways of more sustainable thinking and acting in urban environments. Their focus lies on identifying the potentials and needs of local, participative projects, primarily urban gardens, in order to formulate policy recommendations.

Common Grounds takes long term view starting with what these projects require in their starting phases and in order to proliferate all the way to how these project can be incorporated within city planning and environmental strategies.
