For the last couple of years, my interest in urban farming has grown. I grow all kind of things in my window, and I love it when I see people gather to plant things together. The city needs some green love, plants and engaging people that care about the nature (and future!).

To my great luck, there are several urban gardens in Copenhagen. I live next to Byhaven 2200. Byhaven 2200 is a part of the park called Nørrebroparken, that been transformed to a small garden. People in the neighborhood help each other to give the plants water and keep everything in order, while hanging out and having a good time.

Anyone that wants can join Byhaven 2200. If you’re in Copenhagen for a few months, it can be a good idea to help with the garden. If you’re only in town for a few days, try to visit it when in Nørrebroparken. Buy a coffee at Coffee Collective at Jægersborggade and take it with you to the garden for a sunny break.
