Spatial mapping of community gardens in Vienna

As part of a spatial mapping of one prominent type of green urban commons, we represented a more or less comprehensive list of community gardens to be found in Vienna. This list took the one published by Gartenpolylog as a starting point. We visited all garden sites mentioned therein and only mapped those still active. We furthermore added gardens that were not present in the list. Caution is recommended concerning the social organization of these gardens, since they are quite heterogenous both in this regard and their spatial organization as well as goals. These issues will be topics of further inquiry.

The full map can be found here.

This is a screenshot of the overall distribution of these sites:

  1. Super Karte. Und Danke für die Überprüfung, welche Gärten noch aktiv sind. Ich hätte noch eine Ergänzung: Nachbarschaftsgarten Roda-Roda-Gasse/Ecke Prager Straße im Wien 21. Strebersdorf. Ist zwar kein land-grabbig 🙂 aber ein Pilotprojekt für Nachbarschaftsgärten im Gemeindebau (wo das mit dem grabbing schon immer versucht wurde, aber traditionell sehr schwer ist), von Wiener Wohnen gefördert, vom Verein Wirbel initiert und drei Jahre begleitet und seit 2011 von den GärtnerInnen selbständig geführt.

  2. Danke für das Feedback. Oje, da haben wir die Roda-Roda-Gasse doch tatsächlich vergessen. Besucht hatten wir den Garten. Danke für den Hinweis, und für den Link zur Studie!

  3. Additional features of laptops are probably the
    most successful factors like mobility, portability and flexibility and lots of more features.
    Your university or college will have some type of
    computer lab where you can work in your papers or assignments; there is no question about that.
    Cheap laptops for college students HP features Elite
    – Book 8560w laptop with improved and extra features
    and better design.

    A few will deliver a laptop using them and also
    sit down over their very own lunch break hour
    or so to have the ability to attend type. Those will be the home line
    computers that are prone to failure much a lot more than what
    can be acquired online, the Business Class of laptops.
