Himmelbeet is a 1,700 m² community garden in the Berlin district of Wedding. Since 2013, with the help of many volunteers, it has been possible to create a public and green meeting place for social engagement and education which offers open space for the neighbourhood, social initiatives and visitors to join in and help shape it. The garden is cultivated with ecological methods and cares for biodiversity. Some of the garden vegetables are served in a sustainably managed and alternative Himmelbeet Cafe’ - built from recyclable materials such as wood and clay. Himmelbeet organizes workshops on gardening and ecology and is involved in inclusion projects. It aims at creating solutions for the ecological and social crisis by promoting the production of sustainable food, environmental education and community integration.
