OUR SHARED VISION
We are joined in our shared vision, values and long-term goals.
Our vision is to establish a self-sustaining food forest
that fosters a healthy community, healthy people and
a healthy environment.
We have submitted an application to bring our food forest to life on the grasslands of Tempelhofer Feld,
Everyone from our diverse local community who wants to get involved.
Using Permaculture Design principles and methods.
All humans share the threat of climate change.
We will work toward a future that ultimately nurtures, protects, and supports a healthy community. We aim to develop a high quality of life for emotional, physical, nutritional, and social well-being.
FFF will encourage active and healthy lifestyles, help improve mental and physical health and serve as a place for the people of Berlin to socialise.
We will nourish the community while enhancing biodiversity and increasing soil quality. We will become part of a strategy to mitigate climate change: restoration of high plant density and diversity will increase our ability to capture carbon, filter the air, remove harmful pollutants, and cool the city naturally.
We live in an extraordinary time. We borrow resources from future generations, consuming more than we cycle back into the system. Thus, the system we live in is no longer in balance with nature.
At FFF we believe that we need to reconnect to the cycles of nature. As individuals, we must become co-creators of change. As communities, we must empower and teach each other, learn from another, and develop a culture of collaboration.
Our forest will transform contaminated soil into productive land, boasting a diverse range of edible, endemic plants all-year-round.
We will empower and engage our community. Our project is inclusive of all ages, backgrounds, and circumstances.
The process of establishing the FFF will be experimental, problem-solving, solution-finding, and involve learning by participation.
We will become a bottom-up urban lab, where an empowered community can experiment with nature in the urban contexts and co-create resilient solutions for its restitution.
We will co-create ideas, tools and knowledge for a sustainable urban life, which will be documented and shared as open-source, to be replicated and applied to other communities everywhere.
SETTING UP THE FRAMEWORK
As a self-organizing group, we co-create values and principles to collaborate effectively and efficiently to allow for a fluctuating and increasing group size.
We aim to grow and build a community with a shared vision and shared principles. The larger and more diverse the group, the better.
We will initiate research and development activities to attain knowledge by gathering and sharing relevant information with members from our community, experts, and partners.
ENGAGEMENT & EMPOWERMENT
In this stage, we have everything we need to start planting. We engage and empower our growing community. We continue to develop our collective knowledge in depth and width.
FOUR STAGES OF ACTION
Every objective we have falls under one of the following stages of action:
