Green City Swimmers / Urban gardening concept

Green City Swimmers
Green City Swimmers

Green areas are essential for a good life quality in cities. A city can therefore never be green enough. For this reason, as part of the urban gardening movement, many city dwellers are committed to increasing green spaces, primarily in the form of gardens. But there are hardly any free areas left in cities that can be planted. Green City Swimmers open up a new perspective: Green City Swimmers are floating gardens with which water can be planted. Urban waters offer free areas near the shore that are suitable for gardens, but have not yet been considered. Green City Swimmers give city dwellers the opportunity to make their city even greener.
