Community gardens in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a city where prices per square meter are high. The result? Many people do not have a private garden in which to plant or cultivate fruits, vegetables, herbs and vegetables.

To overcome this, the City of Luxembourg and now more and more municipalities, offer an original and innovative community concept: the community gardens!

Created for people who do not have a private garden, community gardens allow people to grow their own flowers, vegetables, herbs and fruits for a very reasonable price.

First established in 2013 in Luxembourg City in the Bonnevoie neighborhood, the community gardens have since expanded. They are now offered in Limpertsberg, in the Pétrusse valley in the Gare/Ville Haute sector and in the Pfaffenthal district . A new community garden opens in the Grund district, on a surface of 180 m² with 7 vegetable boxes.

Each community garden plot is composed of a “common” part, as well as several “private” plots. These plots can be cultivated alone, with family or friends. The individual plots measure approximately 4 meters by 2 meters and allow for the cultivation of several plantations.

Environmentally friendly meeting places

Another important criterion for the community gardens of the City of Luxembourg is that the cultivation is carried out in an ecological way, respectful of the environment. The pesticides or chemical fertilizers are prohibited, as well as GMOs. Compost bins are also provided.

Exclusively reserved for the residents of the neighborhoods in which they are located, these gardens are created with a view to sustainable economy. The objective is also to create a friendly atmosphere between friends and resident neighbors. Picnic tables are available.

In addition, the city offers each resident who rents a plot of land a training session with a professional gardener in order to optimize the cultivation of their plot.

Are you interested in community gardens?

You are interested in the concept and would like to benefit from a plot?

Please contact one of the environmental delegates of the City of Luxembourg to find out if plots are still available at the telephone number 4796-4772 or nisaac@vdl.lu, or contact your local administration if you do not live in the City of Luxembourg.

You can also log on to the Eise gaart website, the portal for community gardens in Luxembourg. The site presents the shared gardens in Luxembourg and how to join them. You will also find information on ecological gardening and a calendar of events in and around the vegetable gardens at the national level. Produced in partnership with the CELL – Center for Ecological Learning Luxembourg, the site is published in French, English and German.
