In July 2018, our Hamburg team got permission from the HafenCity district local authorities to develop and care for the small garden bed in front of our office. A mix of plants and seeds from kitchen garden and flowers species create a small aromatic garden and a safe oasis for bees and other insects. It has been pretty challenging during this unusually hot summer, but worth the effort!
We are also glad that our neighbors are actively engaging to green the other beds around the block. A greener city helps improve biodiversity, cools the urban temperature and increases the liveliness of the street, the quality of life and the sense of ownership of the public space of its’ inhabitants.
