in an backyard of our berlin charlottenburg city block - 'block 128' - is the `ziegenhof` - 'goats courtyard'. in the late 70ties / early 80ties the inner houses of this block were demolished. the courtyard was squatted to prevent the construction of new apartment houses and establish an inner-city green space instead. it worked - the 'ziegenhof' serves as as the garden, the 19th century apartment house, we live in, does not have. it is an official green space now, but a very lively group of locals keep the spirit of an self organized attempt - keeping goats and chickens and bees, grow vegetable and provide the neighborhood kids with trees to climb on.
an icecream parlor guards its entrance and serves sweets and coffee.
