About Open Source Gardens

++++ English version below ++++

Hallo!

"Willkommen im Open Source Garten, wo Offenheit gesät und Freiheit geerntet wird!"

Ok, zugegeben ist es noch nicht ganz so weit... Aber solch ein Garten ist unser Ziel : )

Dazu hier ein inspirierendes Bild, CC0:

Idee

Wir möchten "Open Source Gärten" gestalten und damit gärtnerisch und kreativ Menschen über Open Source (Philosophie/Software) aufklären. Dazu wollen wir ganz gezielt Samen anpflanzen der, ähnlich wie Open Source Software, allen Menschen als Allgemeingut zur Verfügung steht. Für eine detailliertere Erklärung siehe Open Source Seeds und deren Erklärvideo.

Daneben stellen wir ein Infoschild. Auf diesem Schild ist ein Link zu einer webseite auf der "Open Source Pflanzen und Wurzeln" erklärt werden. Also was die Allmende materieller und immaterieller Güter verbindet und im innersten Zusammenhält.

Ein kleines Beet auf dem Tempelhofer Feld ist uns schon so gut wie sicher. Das verhilft der ganzen Sache zu etwas Aufmerksamkeit und soll zur Nachahmung inspirieren. Wenn du Kontakt zu anderen Gemeinschaftsgärten hast, die Interesse an einer kleinen Ecke Open Source Garten haben könnten, super! Denn wir wollen gerne zeitgleich mehrere Gärten anlegen und das ganze Projekt damit dezentralisieren.

Aber Schritt für Schritt. Unter Strich soll es allen Beteiligten vor allem Spaß machen : )

Vorgeschlagene Schritte

A)

Zusammenkommen, zusammenfinden und eine Gruppe kreieren.

B)

Kontakt aufnehmen mit verschiedenen Gemeinschaftsgärten-Projekten, die Idee vorstellen und fragen ob wir vllt ~2qm² dafür bekommen könnten.

C)

Homepage basteln, Kommunikationskanäle etablieren.

D)

Pflanzen pflanzen, homepage updaten, infos updaten, anderen davon erzählen, Gemeinschaft aufbauen, Sommer genießen, Spaß haben : )

E)

Nach der Saison: Evaluation

Interessiert?

Wenn du jetzt Lust bekommen hast mitzumachen, dann freuen wir uns wenn du mitmachst.

Unser erstes Treffen fand statt am Sonntag, 16. Februar, in privater Umgebung nähe Hermannplatz.

Auch eine Mailingliste ist geboren. Wenn du drauf möchtest, dann schreibe bitte eine mail an contact att opensourcegardens.info und wir machen dich drauf.

Ein nächstes Treffen ist geplant in der Kalenderwoche 9. Wenn du interessiert bist und kommen magst, schicke mir doch einfach kurz eine mail an contact att opensourcegardens.info, dann bekommst du die Adresse. Du kannst gerne auch eine email schicken wenn du interessiert bist aber nicht kommen kannst. Dann werden wir versuchen dich im nachhinein upzudaten darüber wie es weitergeht.

Howdy!

Welcome to the Open Source Garden, where openness is sown and freedom is reaped!

Well, ok, we are not yet there ... But such a garden is our goal : )

Here is an inspiring picture:

Idea

We would like to create "Open Source Gardens" and educate people about Open Source (philosophy/software) in a horticultural and creative way. For this purpose we want to plant seeds which, similar to Open Source Software, are available to all people as common property. For a more detailed explanation see Open Source Seeds and their explanatory video.

We will put an info sign next to it. On this sign there is a link to a website where "Open Source plants and roots" are explained. So what connects the common of material and immaterial goods and holds them together.

A small bed on the Tempelhofer Feld is as good as certain for us. This helps the whole thing to get some attention and should inspire to imitation. If you have contact to other community gardens that might be interested in a small corner of open source garden, great! Because we'd like to create several gardens at the same time and decentralize the whole project.

But step by step. In the end what matters most is that everyone involved has fun : )

Potential steps

A)

Come together, get to know each other and create a group.

B)

Contact various community garden projects, present the idea and ask if we could get ~2qm² for it.

C)

Make a homepage and 1 flyer. (Note: Step 2 + 3 should happen somehow parallel at best)

D)

Planting plants, update homepage, update infos, tell others about it, build community, enjoy summer, have fun : )

E)

After the season: Evaluation

Interested?

If you feel like joining us now, then we would be happy to meet you!

Our first meeting took place on Sunday, February 16th, in private surroundings near Hermannplatz.

A next meeting is planned in calendar week 9. If you are interested and want to come, just send a short mail to contact att opensourcegardens.info, then you will get the address. You can also send an email if you are interested but cannot come. Then we will try to update you afterwards.
