Water for gardens

Allotment gardens, „haveforeninger“ in Danish, are a very common sight in and around Aarhus. The thought behind allotment gardens goes back to the labour movement and the idea to give people who live in the city a chance to grow their own produce and enjoy nature and community. There are more than 3500 allotment gardens in Aarhus and each one of them is someone’s individual paradise. Norringholm Haveforening, where Jonna, Michel, Elsebeth and about 170 others have their gardens, is located at the shore of Brabrand Lake. Having an affordable place where they can enjoy clean air and nature means very much to them. However, at this point the wastewater runs untreated into the ground. Aarhus city council has to decide who should pay for a sewerage system for more than 3000 allotment gardens.
