In our last blog article, we have already introduced our extraordinary city bees and their honey to our readers.

For this reason, it has been marked out as biosphere reserve by the UNESCO. As a model region for sustainability, the Wienerwald supports ecologically friendly forms of land use and a better understanding of the interactions between man and nature.

Today we would like to show you that Vienna is not only a green city because of its stunning parks and forests, but also thanks to its urban farms, comunal patches and herbage manufactures: City Farm Schönbrunn The City Farm is the biggest centre of competence for garden pedagogics in Austria.
