Flower-Power-Weekend – Green Days Festival at Potsdamer Platz
Grimm’s Hotels are fans of the Urban Gardening Trend as you can see due to the herbal garden of our chef just in front of the kitchen and on the restaurants guests terrace. Unfortunately the resting butterfly had other plans than being the star of my lavender-flower-herbs-foto – probably the brimstone butterfly hurried away for the start of the “Green Days Festival” which will take place from 24.-26. June 2022. It is the first Potsdamer Platz “Gardening Street Festival”: For 3 days the streets Alte Potsdamer Straße, Varian-Fry-Straße and the Potsdamer Platz itself will be the centre of a colourful market with streetart, livemusic, food trucks and workshops all themed around flowers and plants.
Urban gardening means more greenery wherever possible – you don’t have enough space for gardening activities? Why don’t you try vertical gardening? Berlins Galeries Lafayette is a prominent example for an all year around installation of greenery at the wall. – For a home version it’s just fine to start with a few strawberry plants – harvesting on your own balcony… Strawberry plants are easy to grow and you will have a lot of fun unless you don’t forget watering… for advanced gardeners there are lots of unknown or forgotten herbal plants right beside new cultures which helps to preserve the plants. That’s not only a dream for hobby chefs but for preserving bees and insects and their natural habitats, too.
In case you are unsure – maybe give it a chance and visit the festival!?
