The documentary presents seven urban gardening projects in Berlin (community gardens, intercultural gardens, roof gardens, also “guerrilla gardening”). The film focuses on the personal view of the urban gardeners, their visions as well as their concrete projects experimenting with a new way of “alternative” city planning. The citizens would like to change their cities in order to make them greener, to cultivate their own food and to work in intercultural communities. Besides the social aspect, they are also encouraged by political commitment, which in the long run aims at developing new concepts of urban life. The filmmaker wishes to raise awareness about the gardeners’ commitment and the possibility of civic participation in towns.
