Spiel/Feld Marzahn is an urban agriculture project aiming at establishing community-led food growing on a redundant urban site in a Berlin housing estate. It is a participatory project between landscape architecture students of the Technical University Berlin, the planning department of the council of the Berlin borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf and local actors on site. A special stakeholder focus is on building the project for and with a neighbouring primary school.The project investigates relationships between environmental education/ecological literacy and urban agriculture, between different forms of learning and the spatial consequences for regenerated urban and architectural site. The project's aim is to instigate the spatially effective, food productive use of a brownfield site and at the same time to strengthen local engagement and offer lifestyle choices. At the moment, the project consists of a 600 m2 food growing field, a purpose-built shed and an emerging group of local gardeners.
