Living in times of uncertainties

Urban Gardening - The garden in the industrial area

The vision The idea was conceived during a coffee break at a workshop in June 2018. Roland and Sarah were talking about biodiversity, architecture and food. The vision of making the Basel/Kaiseraugst site more attractive with green spaces while also promoting biodiversity, creating leisure areas for staff and producing food gave rise to the Urban Gardening initiative. From the outset, Urban Gardening at Roche was to be an initiative “by employees for employees” and would be managed as an EcoLogicals project.
