Himmelbeet: Real Wedding greens in 2014

28. Februar 2014

Last year, “Him­mel­beet” tur­ned an enti­re quar­ter green, chan­ged it and made it live­lier. To make the pro­ject suc­cessful this year, Wed­din­gers are invi­ted to participate.

Han­nah Lisa Lins­mai­er from “Him­mel­beet” explains how this year’s plant nur­sing action is going to work: “Like last year, we give seeds and soil to peo­p­le who want to nur­se some plants. On the 10th of May, when Him­mel­beet is re-ope­ned, the plants can be han­ded back to us.” In 2013, about 200 Wed­ding plant nur­ses hel­ped “Him­mel­beet” to start off at Schulstraße.
This year, ever­y­thing starts on the 4th of April at the Farmer’s Mar­ket and on the 5th of April at real (Schil­ler­park­cen­ter), befo­re on the 25th of April the tem­po­ra­ry shop at real will be closed.
10th of May: The gar­den opens!!

“From the 12th of April, Him­mel­beet is open and we’ll sell plants the­re”, says Han­nah. During April, every day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the café, which will be com­ple­te­ly up and run­ning in May, will slow­ly be set up. From May, ‘gar­den working days’ will hap­pen – like last year – on Thurs­days, and the gar­den will be open every Tues­day to Sun­day from 10 a.m. until dark. The café opens at 1 a.m. Tues­day to Fri­day and at 11 a.m. on the weekends.

Gar­dening is not the only thing, though: Like last year, every two weeks Tan­go work­shops for beg­in­ners will be held the­re (in coope­ra­ti­on with Lil­ja and Jens Chris­ti­an from Tan­go­l­oft). Plus, many other cul­tu­ral events and envi­ron­men­tal work­shops will take place. “We want to start a ‘Repair Café’ and need help with that”, says Han­nah. A new grant also enables the pro­ject to host five bilin­gu­al weekend-work­shops for women. For this, “Him­mel­beet” is loo­king for work­shop hosts who migra­ted to Ber­lin and want to share their knowledge.

Support needed

At the moment, “Him­mel­beet” is loo­king for craftman’s busi­nesses who are wil­ling to help with set­ting up the café and the event space – elec­tri­ci­ans, sani­ta­ti­on experts, roofers, car­pen­ters and masons are nee­ded: Just cont­act [email protected] or 0162 2987205.

Last but not least, “Him­mel­beet” is run­ning out of space: “The flower beds are wan­ted,  but we can only offer 150, so we’re curr­ent­ly loo­king for some extra space” – may­be “Him­mel­beet” will enchant ano­ther pie­ce of fallow land in Wed­ding soon…
