In the living-lab KIQ the construction of raised beds around the building continues despite corona restrictions. For this purpose, two people each meet and screw old wooden pallets to places where vegetables and herbs can thrive.

In addition, the local group ‘Siegen isst bunt’ (Siegen eats/is colorful) has launched a new project that brings people into contact with sustainable food practices via digital means. The project is called ‘Gemüse sucht ein Zuhause’ (Vegetables looking for a home). Here people are invited to adopt a chili plant and join a telegram group and email distribution list to learn together with others how to grow food and produce seeds. Experts give useful tips and participants can ask questions at any time.
