We invite you to watch a short video made as a part of the project "Local history on Instagram", which was realized by the Krzyżowa Foundation in 2021.

The video uses the allotment garden colony in Leipzig Johannistal to show that these gardens are political places.

The allotment garden side in Johannistal ist the oldest allotment garden colony in Saxony and was built according to the model of gardens for poor working families. The author uses the history of the place to show in what way allotment gardens can be open spaces for democratic actions and how politics and society influence their development.

[Film available in German].
