On a part of Stockholm’s Södermalm district, a long forgotten railway track was cleared to make space for one of the first urban farming projects in Sweden’s capital. A few hundred meters of track became a base for growing vegetables and other plants. The project was initiated by a collective of enthusiasts. With the help of old pallets they created garden beds that now sits steadily on the old tracks.
That is the story of how Stockholm got it’s own homegrown example of urban farming. We met Max Zinnecker, one of the initiators of the project, set to put Stockholm on the right track for a future that embraces nature.
