Goethes Garten is one of the projects launched by the Goethe-Institut Alexandria for the year 2018 under the theme of Climate Change mitigation. The vision was to turn the 347m2 terrace into a rooftop garden that serves different users creating a new meeting point. “The community is now maintaining the garden as an independent initiative and is helping other people through its events to grow plants on balconies and rooftops.”Goethe.
