Hamburg City Estates, Germany
"From municipal estates to community-connected organic farms"

Converting municipal estates to organic farming
For decades, Hamburg municipality has purchased agricultural land to be able to influence city development. In 1989/1994, the city opted for the conversion of three large estates in its ownership to organic farming. These farms all play a major role in providing local organic food, and two of them have developed direct marketing and a large array of social and cultural activities involving the community.
