The diversity of animal and plant species is often higher in cities than in the countryside. One reason for this is the intensive use of fertilisers and pesticides on pastures and fields. In the city, in contrast, manifold green spaces offer plenty of food and habitats for various animals. Such green spaces include parks and lawns, allotment and community gardens as well as balconies and green roofs.
This exhibition provides you with practical tips for eco-friendly greening of your private balcony, patio or garden. The exhibition is a cooperative project between the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) Halle-Jena-Leipzig and the Botanical Garden of Leipzig University.
