Berlin is known for its historically unique free spaces (Freiräume). Due to the morphogenesis of urban space after the Fall of the Wall, the city was scattered with temporary uses and squats. Despite people are constantly demanding their Rights to the City until nowadays, this development is in decline.
As an attempt to continue public participation in shaping (in the sense of gestalten) urban life worlds (Lebenswelten), activists are eager to create, maintain and publicise urban gardening initiatives. The Berliner Gartenkarte is a collective mapping initiative, formed by local students and researchers in collaboration with the urban agriculture community, that intends to visualize the gardens’ spatial distribution.
