Intercultural garden / Interkultureller Garten

I didn’t think I’d find myself praising an initiative for immigrants here, but I am impressed by the intercultural garden near the River Rednitz. It is like a set of allotments with no fences in between. 28 gardeners of 19 nationalities have plots 25 metres square. Some children from two multinational kindergartens use it too. The man from Kosovo plants squashes and honeydew melons (only from the Balkans) and a banana tree, the Vietnamese teach others how to cook squash leaves, there are frames constructed of branches to carry pumpkins that have spread from one plot to another. Many immigrants come from a farming background and live in flats without gardens.
