Equigaart (asbl.) is a community garden located in Junglinster. It gives an opportunity for different generations and cultures to meet. The objective is to allow exchange of ideas and provide education around the theme of organic gardening.
The garden works in close collaboration with the Forum for Employment (FPE) certified for organic gardening. Part of their plot is occupied by the garden.
Different plots of different sizes are available for rent. An annual rotation of plots is planned. However, depending on demand, it is possible to remain in the same place. The plots are delimited by flowery strips. Compost is made available for gardens to use. The gardeners have access to gardening tools and water.
Since 2016, a garden of medicinal and culinary plants has been created. It is available to all gardeners. Furthermore, cosmetics have also been developed using these plants.
Various activities and meetings are organized during the year, such as a Garden Festival, participation in the Junglinster Market, the Advent market and thematic workshops (e.g. on cabbage or lacto-fermentation).
As the garden serves as a meeting and exchange point, a project is currently under way with the association Reech eng Hand, in order to integrate refugees into local life.
Equigaart wants to allow these people to cultivate their own land and to be in contact with
local people. The project is called "Equitable" and aims to promote integration through common gardening and cooking activities between refugees and residents.
The Equibongert is a community orchard for Equigaart members. Different native species and local varieties of apples, plums etc can be found here. An harvest is usually organized annually and a variety of jam making workshops are offered.
Participation in the garden is subject to payment of a membership fee and there is a waiting list. Members use a key to access to the garden.
