More than 97% of all fruits and veggies consumed in Luxembourg are imported. In the face of this food dependency, biodiversity loss and urban warming, corporate gardens are major tools for transition. Thanks to green spaces designed for food production and biodiversity (pollinators, birds, bats), urban zones can become welcoming spaces for life and well-being.
Corporate gardens projects actively gather teams around major values and strengthen links. Coordination of these projects provides team members dynamism, commitment, and motivation.
More than aesthetically pleasing, corporate gardens demonstrate a sustainable commitment to ecological transition of territories.
Workshops: creation and management of corporate gardens
In 2023, IMS initiates a programme of 7 coaching sessions to create gardens in companies.
A working group composed of twelve companies will attend a series of theorical and practical workshops. It will provide the knowledge and good practices useful to start such a project.
During the workshop sessions, the group members can work on preparing their corporate garden. The topics include permaculture, garden design, management and coordination of corporate gardens and biodiversity in urban area.
Our partners: the CELL (Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg), the IFSB (Institut de Formation Sectoriel du Bâtiment) and the LUGA (Luxembourg Urban Garden).
Contact us if you wish to be accompanied in realising your project!
