Laura Röthlisberger — WATER GARDEN – Grow Food, Grow Community, Grow Perspective

WATER GARDEN is a public garden that lives from the precious gift of water. A shared water cycle (Aquaponics) combines fish farming and horticulture. The symbiotic principle is based on recycling water and the nutrients in it. WATER GARDEN transforms a sad concrete cityscape into an oasis and offers the people who live there the possibility to actively participate in the project, to exchange knowledge and experience and to practice a healthy use of water and of nature, which lives from it.
