Switzerland, January 2010
People from 20 different nations use the 148 plots in the allotment gardens in Bern. With their love for Mother Earth, they form a microcosm filled with dreams, seclusion, homesickness, joy and conflicts. Although the Swiss concept of order comes up against the foreign talent for improvisation, all the garden lovers enjoy what has become most precious in our society: time, attention and space. Their variegated coexistence concomitantly illustrates changes in the society. The allotment gardens, a former palladium of the proper Swiss bourgeois way of life, has become a mosaic of Swiss society.
