2000m² in Istanbul, Turkey
bostan

In Istanbul the community garden project Bostan is awaken to a new life. The word Bostan means garden near your house, where you grow your daily food. And this is what people like to do in Turkey, even when they live in a city of millions – like Istanbul. For more than 30 years people people here have struggled to defend their common garden against urbanisation. Since 2015 people can produce their food at Bostan, School gardens and fruit trees included.

In our blog the people involved in the Bostan project will share their stories from 2000 m² of arable land in Istanbul. You find the Bostan project’s website (in Turkish) here.
