The Vienna Parks and Gardens (MA 42)

Sponsoring of community gardens

In recent years, the Vienna City Gardens sponsored one community garden in each district through a one-off payment. In order to receive this grant, the following requirements had to be met:

1. the community garden must be organized as an association,

2. the approval of the district administration must be obtained and

3. a valid contract must be concluded with the landowner.

With proof of these requirements, the funding applicant could apply for funding as a community garden association. If this was approved, the association had 1 year to build its garden and, after submitting the original documents, the costs were reimbursed up to a maximum of €3,600.

Currently: The funding has already been used in every district!
