Collaborative Sustainable Design In Action – Join In!

In January of 2018 Baumhaus was commissioned by BUNDjugend to build a large „witches kettle“ to be used as a theatrical prop during the Wir haben es satt demonstration for sustainable agriculture. Since the prop was only going to be used for 1 day, we designed it in a modular way so it could be partially disassembled, re-configured and then permanently installed into the interior of the Baumhaus. We even figured out a cool way to up-cycle old wooden veggie boxes that normally get thrown away!

Check out our progress so far and feel free to let us know if you would like to join in with these or any number of other practical sustainable projects and actions we have going on. Write us a mail to let us know what super powers you would like to share to make the world a better place right here in Berlin.

Here are a list of activities we will be engaged in over the next months and the details for how to participate…

If you want to check out things in person first then feel free to drop by any Thursday between 16:00 and 22:00 during our community networking evening and all you can eat bio-buffet…:

Thursday Night Community Nights, the many faces and phases

Our Community Night brings together all sorts of good people to engage in collaboratively supporting each other in making the world a more balanced place now. We are very happy that there always seems to be such a great vibe in the space so thanks to everyone who helped to make it happen over the past few months!

Join us any Thursday.
