Although urban allotment gardening dates back to the nineteenth century, it has recently undergone a renaissance of interest and popularity. This is the result of greater concern over urban greenspace, food security and quality of life. This book presents a comprehensive, research-based overview of the various features, benefits and values associated with urban allotment gardening in Europe. The book is based on a European COST Action project, which brings together researchers and practitioners from all over Europe for the first detailed exploration of the subject on a continent-wide scale. It assesses the policy, planning and design aspects, as well as the social and ecological benefits of urban allotment gardening. Through an examination of the wide range of different traditions and practices across Europe, it brings together the most recent research to discuss the latest evolutions of urban allotment gardening and to help raise awareness and fill knowledge gaps. The book provides a multidisciplinary perspective, including insights from horticulture and soil science, ecology, sociology, urban geography, landscape, planning and design. The themes are underpinned by case studies from a number of European countries which supply a wide range of examples to illustrate different key issues.

Über das Leben, das Gärtnern und die Freundschaft In diesem faszinierenden Briefwechsel tauschen sich die beiden legendären englischen Gärtner Beth Chatto und Christopher Lloyd, langjährige Freunde und enthusiastische Pflanzenliebhaber, über ihre so unterschiedlichen Gärten, aber auch über ihre Erfahrungen, Erfolge und Enttäuschungen aus; sie berichten von Erlebnissen, gemeinsamen Freunden, kulinarischen Genüssen und den Freuden und Leiden des Alltags. Sehr persönlich und liebenswert diskutieren sie ihre Ansichten und Einsichten über das Leben, die Musik, die Jahreszeiten und die Natur. Ihre Lebenswege und Ausgangsbedingungen sind sehr unterschiedlich: auf der einen Seite Beth Chatto, die als Autodidaktin ihre heute berühmten Beth Chatto Gardens in East Anglia über mehr als 40 Jahre dem kargen Boden abgetrotzt hat und damit zeigt, was unter schwierigsten Bedingungen möglich ist; auf der anderen Seite Christopher Llyod, der das historische Anwesen Great Dixter in Sussex mit seinen zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts von Sir Edwin Lutyens angelegten Gärten von seinen Eltern übernommen und sehr kreativ weiterentwickelt hat. Beide haben mehrere Bücher über ihre Gärten veröffentlicht und wurden weltweit mit zahlreichen Preisen und Anerkennungen ausgezeichnet. • Faszinierender Briefwechsel zweier legendärer Gärtner • Persönlich und berührend • Wunderbare Lektüre für alle Gartenfreunde
