The project

Referring to the unofficial twinnings that reflect Berlin’s current immigrant population instead of the official equivalents of the city, the project explores the city’s long tradition of urban horticulture and reveals ideas of health in the widest sense: as balance and imbalance as well as on a societal and personal level, looking at how people navigate and share resources within a city.

Many nationalities at POG

a gardener's house waiting for springtime
Klaus Trappmann: There is a women here that everybody calls her "Paprika". She lived in Yugoslavia when Yugoslavia still existed and she taught Albanian language, but after the war, the government did not need her any more and she had to start another job, so she began gardening. She was and she is still fond of paprika and brings the seeds from kosovo for cultivating and cooks paprika in a balcanic way. She put some in vinaigre and others inside onions or in other foods. Some are very hot other are more sweet. 
Another gardener is specialized in healing plants and he has got really a lot! 
Then we have another gardener, a women coming from Naxos, that cultivates a lot of wild herbs and put them in marmelades and other dishes... she cooks really well! She also does a lot of food in oil.
In the kolonie there are also two or three people coming from Russia... A lot of nationalities here at POG!
