Prinzessinnengarten Berlin Comes to New York
Friday, May 10, 2013, 6:30 p.m.
Deutsches Haus at NYU
This urban garden has become a lively center of exchange and learning within a diverse neighborhood that has been marked by social tensions. However, despite the fact that Prinzessinnengarten is now internationally recognized as a prototype for urban sustainability, last year the city of Berlin announced its intention of selling the area of Princess Garden to the highest bidder.This created a public outcry and more than 30000 people signed a petition for the preservation of this extraordinary garden.
Elizabeth Calderon-Lüning und Marco Clausen, two of the founders of Prinzessinnengarten, will tell the remarkable story of this urban garden in Berlin Kreuzberg. And since gardening in the city cannot be imagined without sharing food, they will also prepare a small meal in cooperation with garden lovers from New York.
