The New Guinea Urban Garden was a project that took place on the roof of the building that hosted our activities during the period 2009-2013. The garden included large wooden raised beds and smaller growing containers as well as a nursery for the production of seedlings. It functioned as an open classroom for the practical workshops organized in the context of the relevant seminars and the production largely covered our needs in fresh vegetables and herbs.

This garden was a field of application and experimentation for the study, development and adaptation of different techniques for growing vegetables and herbs in containers while serving as a reference point for the growing community of urban growers in the wider New Guinea project. Finally, the fact that the garden was far from any other food production system enabled us to grow traditional varieties of vegetables for seed production on a small scale.
