"Iessbar Stad" in Wiltz

Initiative phase: Well established and running

The initiative "Iessbar Stad" in Wiltz is made up of citizens from the region who take care of a community garden for crops.

"Iessbar Stad" in Wiltz

The initiative "Iessbar Stad" in Wiltz is made up of citizens from the region. They pursue the vision of using and transforming the urban areas in Wiltz for planting useful plants instead of ornamental plants.

In the first steps, the group has already started to plant raised beds on two sites made available by the municipality of Wiltz. These sites are to be handed over to the general public so that neighbours, colleagues and schools from the neighbouring buildings can use these raised beds for planting and, of course, also for care and harvesting.

Another step is a community garden, which is planned for this summer. Again, much of the planning and work will be done by the group members. The Uewersauer Nature Park and the municipality of Wiltz are supporting this large-scale project.
