Lower Austria on the way to gardens without pesticides

Currently, 153 cities and municipalities in Lower Austria refrain from using synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides as well as peat for maintenance of public green areas. Communities of "nature in the garden" show how the design and ecology of green space can be combined.
