Abstract

Norrebro Agenda 21, an environmental organization in Copenhagen, Denmark, is redeveloping underutilized green space in De Gamles By. They propose sensory gardens, playgrounds, urban farms, community gardens and nature laboratories to improve the quality of life for residents and enrich relations between social groups. We investigated similar facilities and created a catalog of active gardens, their general characteristics and site-specific information. The catalog provides concrete examples to help Agenda 21 redevelop De Gamles By and bolster applications to fund redevelopment.
