Urban Farming and social work in Kiel Mettenhof

Volunteering in Germany at Kinder und Jugendbauernhof in Kiel Mettenhof – Urban farming

Urban farming and youth social work
Horses , flowers and greens as pathways to social competences and inclusion

At the Kinder and Jugend Bauernhof project of the social NGO “AWO” tanzanian volunteers from Kiels partner district Moshi contribute to a project focusing on youth from the surrounded densely populated area of Kiel Mettenhof. People from all over the world are living together in the community close to the social project. Children and youth are visiting the urban AWO farm to get direction in the surrounding urban jungle. Taking over responsibilities for animals, learning how to ride a horse , planting and caring for a green environment are some approaches to reach children and youth in an area where a lot of families live with limited means to access offers of the leisure industry. Bufdi volunteers like Solomon and his German peer Bufdis are giving support to create a unique social approach for Kiel and the youth of Mettenhof. Solomon gets the opportunity to experience all seasons on an urban youth farm project and to create awareness about life in Africa and environmental challenges worldwide.
