New life is growing at Ancora’s community gardens

Refugees who live in apartments in Weilerswist, Germany, now have a plot of land to call their own, thanks to a new Ancora community garden project. The project gives refugees the opportunity to grow their own vegetables, herbs or flowers in six newly constructed boxes filled with potting soil and covered with protective glass panes. Through the mobilization of German volunteers, the Ancora team also built scalable boxes, transported them to refugee homes and taught the refugees gardening skills. It’s a great way to get the community more connected and make Germany feel more like home.
