Allotment sites are worth a visit. Here some examples.
The Luxembourgian Allotment Gardens
Allotment association Matgesfeld
The „Amis de la fleur Belvaux“ manage 28 plots laid out by the local authorities of Sanem in 2017. People garden here without pesticides. 6 plots are school gardens. On one plot you find a raised bed accessible in a wheel chair.
The private not fenced plots are surrounded by common green spaces with benches, space for a barbecue, compost area, tool shed, water pumps and dry toilet.
The open structure enables the exchange of experiences and stimulates intercultural activities.
Allotment association Merl-Belair, site Alfred Thinnes
This allotment site with a total surface of 8,500 sqm and unifying 58 plots is an integral part of the green spaces of the city. The site is surrounded by an orchard, an area with late mowing and beehives under the acacias
In 2014, after many years of practice, the allotment site was declared as “site without
pesticides” and participates in this way in the general green space policy of the town of Luxembourg in order to promote the local biodiversity.
In 2015 the site received the Office diploma for ecological gardening.
