When the temperatures climb upwards, it is simply a delight to spend some free time in the green. But many people living in Frankfurt do not have their own garden, balcony or even one of the popular allotment plots at home. But if you still want to plant something, you can now experience a very special form of urban gardening: In the Skyline Garden on the roof of the Skyline Plaza shopping centre, a total of 20 boxes (each 800 x 1,200 mm) can be rented for individual planting from the beginning of June. The minimum rental period is 6 months (for 300 €). In any case, there will be a real garden feeling here, as a wildflower and herb meadow will also be planted on the roof garden and insect hotels will be set up.
This will create a small green oasis directly in the shadow of the Messeturm. The rental boxes are already foiled and filled with soil and thus directly prepared for planting. And if you want, you can also rent ready-made young plant sets (organic vegetable garden for €19.50 or organic vegetable herb fruit mix for €29.50). But of course everyone who rents a box can plant it according to their own ideas and wishes. The boxes are located in a fenced area that is only accessible to Skyline Gardening tenants. This also ensures that only you can harvest and enjoy the fruits of your gardening. The keys are handed over when the garden box is handed over. The area is accessible for tenants every day from 7:00 - 0:00 o'clock. In the fenced area there is also a communal lounge area where you can meet for a family picnic or relax while sunbathing on deck chairs. However, barbecues are not allowed.
With the Skyline Gardening, the themes of urban living and sustainability are to be brought to life. For example, there are also plans to involve schools and other institutions, and workshops are also possible. All this makes the Skyline Plaza roof garden a real feel-good place where you can plant, harvest and enjoy a little piece of nature in the urban jungle. And the bees will thank you too, as they are attracted by the planting.
