In the summer of 2021, our association successfully applied for the allocation of the Potsdam Citizens' Budget and thus enabled the planting of over a hundred fruit trees (mainly old varieties) in public institutions and private gardens. The allocated project budget of 5000 euros was spent almost exclusively on the purchase of trees. With this action we started an attempt to increase the number of trees in our city. Against the background that tree felling in Potsdam is by far not sufficiently compensated by new plantings of city trees, we came up with the idea of giving away native fruit trees to public institutions as well as to private individuals. For our fruit trees planted in youth clubs, children's, school and private gardens, it can be ensured at the same time that the young trees are well cared for and well watered in dry periods. The feedback we received about our campaign was consistently gratifying. The fact of receiving something as a gift, just for a good cause, was met with positive astonishment by many people in Potsdam. Thankfully, some people from Potsdam sent us a photo of the planted fruit trees, so that we can show a small collage here.
