"I grew up in the country as a child, I went to get fresh food products in the vegetable garden, I ate them for a good part of the year. When I arrived in Lausanne to study architecture, I didn’t have a balcony. I missed the taste of fresh radishes and when my flatmates wanted parsley for salad it cost a small fortune for three leaves, and forget about organic herbs for which one had to double the price. As students, it adds up pretty quickly of course, especially when we like to enjoy good food.
As one thing leads to another, and with the help of my friends, I developed this project. The urban gardens came along slowly, bit by bit, with the hope that everyone can enjoy a green space at the window or balcony and be able to grow healthy food too. My friends who supported me today are my team”.
