Swedish Community Gardens #3

Welcome to Part 3 in my series of Swedish Community Gardens or, in the vernacular, “kolonilotter”… I’ve gotten a bit distracted lately with my Chicago Victory Garden lectures and neglected this series a bit. And I am JONESING to start planting The Yarden but my work travel and the weather have not made that possible.

Swedish Community Gardens #2

Welcome to Part 2 in my series of Swedish Community Gardens "kolonilotter"... in this post I'd like to show you a few of my favorite basic houses from Tanulunden

Swedish Community Gardens #1

We've been back many times since and there are a few things we do every time. One is a visit Skansen which is an outdoor museum meant to capture pre-industrial Sweden. Imagine Colonial Williamsburg on steroids and speaking with an accent and that's it. There's a lot of stuff to see but my favorite attraction, if you can call it that, are two tiny garden houses called "kolonilotter" - translation "colony of lots" or, more simply, allotments.
