Urban Jungle Bloggers: Green neighbourhoods10 October 2013
Today I'm very happy to be a part of the Urban Jungle Bloggers!
Igor, Judith and Jocelyn came up with the great idea of Urban Jungle Bloggers, where bloggers share inspiration about plants and garden once a month.
The topic for october is green neighbourhoods.
About 5 minutes from where I live in Gothenburg there's a small community garden.
The garden is divided into small pieces approx 4 x 4 meter and then you rent your own little piece of land. Most people rent the same piece of land year, after year after year.
Last week I took a walt there. The whole garden area is enclosed by the fence, so I had to enjoy it from the outside. I love to peek into each of these little gardens, all of them are so different. Some people grow vegetables and some people grow flower.
In most of the gardens there are some chairs and maybe a little table.
I can just imagine how lovely it must be to relax with a cup of coffee after some gardening.
There has been some bad frost already so most flowers, such as dahlias were looking very sad.
While I was walking there I looked for some kind of signs or information of who to contact if one wants to rent a little piece of land, but I couldn't find any.
I think I need to investigate further...
