With 270 allotment garden colonies (see PDF), Leipzig features the highest density of urban gardens in Germany (see PDF). The city is also the origin of the long allotment tradition that started in 1864 with the “Schreber-Movement”. More recently, a movement born in England during the 1960s, known as community gardens, became more and more popular in Germany and introduced alternative methods like permaculture into urban gardening. Besides self-supply and recreation, urban gardens also play an important role when it comes to local climate and biodiversity – two aspects that are incredibly valuable in times of climate change and species loss / extinction crisis.
