Xóm Bắc Cầu is a non-profit and member-driven organisation born in 2018 in Hanoi, Vietnam.
It defines as a participatory and collaborative garden: a place of friendliness, exchange and sharing.
Our main concerns are sustainable development and animation of the territory. In this community garden we hope to bring together several projects - ecological, social, artistic - which will all be linked by our ethos and passion for living well together.
01 / Governance
Our governance is organized around volunteering, professionals and artists involved on several levels on the site: organization of workshops and events, eco-responsible communication and valorization of short circuits at all scales of consumption. Our several partners anchored on our territory are mobilized to innovate by using the natural potential of soils, by promoting biodiversity, by placing the living and well-being at the heart of all practices. And using ecosystem resources to save water, energy and limit non-renewable inputs. It is also about taking advantage of new technologies, trying new agronomic routes or revisiting old practices.
