Some have a garden, but not enough time for it. The others would like to garden, but do not have their own garden. The garden sponsors platform now brings the two together.
Many city dwellers without a balcony would like to be able to dig through the ground more often, see plants growing and harvest vegetables themselves. But as nice as it is to have your own garden: working with it can quickly grow over your head. The solution is actually obvious: sharing the garden, sharing work.
The Gartenpaten platform wants to connect “people with and without a garden”. Here you can quickly and easily place an ad in the categories "I am looking for" or "I am sharing". With the help of a map, you can search for current advertisements in your own location. With a bit of luck, the garden and gardener can find each other. So far, the number of ads is still manageable – but the idea is so good that it will certainly grow quickly.
The platform was funded by a crowdfunding campaign at the end of 2015, and recently went online with a new, well-designed and clear website. There it says:
We are convinced that the shared use of the garden has a number of positive effects. Garden sponsorships contribute to the ecological upgrading of the cultural landscape and can promote the regional cultivation of fruits and vegetables. Garden sponsors also bring people of different generations and origins together.
