Fallow land, green strips and parks are transformed into blooming fields of flowers. Other areas are used to grow tomatoes and potatoes in the middle of the city. Until now, many gardeners from the hanseatic city were active by themselves or in small initiatives. GrünAnTeil wants to change this situation. The members want to ensure by legal methods in community actions a greener Hamburg.
