On 14 July, we inaugurated our fifth area of the " Treffpunkt Vielfalt" project!
The 1,000 square metre courtyard was unsealed, dredged and planted. The redesign was based on a design by landscape architect Dr Gabriele Holst in 2020.

Many areas for young and old alike now invite visitors to linger amidst hundreds of native wild plants. Bees, butterflies, beetles and co. find a new habitat here. Even the old wooden playground equipment now provides new nesting sites for insects that nest above ground.

We are very pleased to be able to demonstrate: Nature-oriented design in housing is not just "nice to have", but a real added value - for people and nature. For this, however, we need more forward-looking housing companies like Charlottenburger Baugenossenschaft eG, BWV zu Köpenick and Freie Scholle zu Berlin eG.

We want to dare more nature again, with wild growth made to measure!

"We need a mosaic of close-to-nature areas in our cities. Housing can exploit its huge potential here," says Dr. Corinna Hölzer, project manager. Carsten-Michael Röding, board member of the Charlottenburger Baugenossenschaft eG, also wants to support this change. He is also convinced: "A message should go out from the areas. You can read about insect mortality everywhere. So we decided we had to do something, too.

May many follow this example.
