The ecosystem of the Jardin des Nations

The Jardin des Nations transitional urbanism concept is based on a collaborative approach, bringing together various local producers to enable them to develop their businesses

Taking agriculture to the city with the Genève Cultive association, which has been supporting the development of urban agriculture and biodiversity in the Canton of Geneva since 2015.

Through its many activities, Genève Cultive raises awareness of local, seasonal, environmentally friendly food production. The association also campaigns for green spaces to be taken into account in future urban development projects, with the aim of developing sustainable cities and communities and combating climate change. Genève Cultive is implementing a new approach to agriculture at the heart of the Jardin des Nations by setting up “Le Potager des Nations”, an agro-ecological urban market garden covering 3,500 square metres. This urban farm is a real focal point for discussion and interaction between members of the international organisations and Genevans – a place for living, learning, talking and sharing through inclusive participatory projects, courses and workshops. All are welcome to come and buy fresh, seasonal produce, to learn the basics of gardening and to discover the benefits of healthy and local grown food.
