The Neem Tree Yard
Klimakrise, Armut, Migration – The Neem Tree Yard e.V. löst drei globale Probleme auf lokaler Ebene! Wir bauen klimaresistente Häuser und mehr aus PET-Flaschen. So schaffen wir Perspektiven für Mensch und Umwelt in einem der ärmsten Länder der Welt.
Nachhaltigkeit darf kein Luxus sein!
The Community Centre will be a place for sustainable ideas and projects. Here, people can inform themselves, exchange ideas, get inspiration and advice to plan and implement something of their own. Whether a house or garden made of PET bottles, preservation methods for food, workshops on social, cultural or economic topics or other creative ideas: The Neem Tree Yard is a place to develop potential. Later, cooperation with various partners is planned.
Many people in The Gambia are malnourished. Fresh fruit and vegetables are very expensive and unaffordable for many. Vertical gardens made of PET bottles can grow fruit and vegetables even in the smallest spaces. This is environmentally friendly, space-saving and easy to implement. Vertical gardens require no pesticides and can be replicated with the simplest of means and at low cost. After a few weeks, they can already be harvested and what is left over is sold at the market.
Building with plastic bottles
Filled with sand, PET bottles can be used like bricks. This simple technology has already proven itself many times over and worldwide to be durable and stable. The advantages are obvious: plastic waste is reduced, resources and the environment are preserved. In addition, the houses are very stable, have a constant indoor climate and are sustainable. This construction method creates jobs that offer people prospects out of poverty and alternatives to fleeing to Europe.
