Brownfields and Gardening

Our gardening bags
We got the chance to participate in some city gardening on the area of a former harbour in Helsinki. The area is called Kalasatama (fish harbour). It was in use harbour for passengers and goods until 2008 and is currently transformed into a new part of Helsinki for 18 000 inhabitants and 10 000 workplaces. When the ships left, but the houses aren't there yet, there is time for interim use.
Having observed the changing harbour area over the last years, I'm excited to see, how our active participation between wasteland and new construction sites works out. The fields (gardening bags) are prepared for the seeds and seedlings to come.
