Urban Gardening…..a new sort of Growth Project ;)


Last Monday we kicked off our very own Happy Urban Gardening project – on the roof terraces of our Berlin Offices.

The ambition – simple: make it look prettier!

We invited all budding H/T/P gardeners to “adopt” a planter tub, then get planting, watering, weeding…  – progress would be documented weekly, shared on social media. In October time we will hold a competition for the prettiest tub, and who knows, even a mini harvest festival. Prizes to be announced!

Why? Well, yes to attract bees of course…. – but mainly just to make more of our very own urban space, so that our clients, guests, partners, and of course employees can enjoy their surroundings more, help soften the “strict” contours of Mitte’s sometimes harsh architectural lines.

“…cultiver son jardin” – Voltaire’s phrase may not have originated during his time at the court of Frederick the Great at Potsdam, and almost certainly not in Berlin….. but it has a timeless cogency.

To me at least.

Happy gardening.
