ALLOTMENT GARDENS FOR RENT — GROW YOUR OWN FOOD AND RECONNECT WITH NATURE WITH MEINE ERNTE

ALLOTMENT GARDENS FOR RENT — GROW YOUR OWN FOOD AND RECONNECT WITH NATURE WITH MEINE ERNTE

During the first lockdown in spring 2020, I decided spontaneously to join one of the public garden schemes offered in Berlin. There are quite a few options with various concepts but the one I joined is called Meine Ernte. The idea is simple: they rent large fields from farmers all over Germany and separate them into 40 or 80 square meter parcels for you to grow vegetables and fruits for a season (April–October) at a fair price. Two-thirds of your plot comes pre-planted with different veggies such as radishes, cabbages, potatoes, lettuces, carrots, and parsley for your convenience. On the remaining land you can plant anything you like. Like many of us, I spend most of my time in front of a screen, so it felt amazing to reconnect with nature and grow my own food. We were able to harvest plenty of fresh and delicious food without any prior experience in farming, and it tasted so much better than any store-bought produce – truly a win-win hobby!
