When did all start?

Our story started with Bertrand who created the first Instagram account in 2013, sharing photos of his first successful urban gardening experience. Located right in the heart of Zurich, Switzerland, Bertrand’s garden was his main source of inspiration.

From that point, people with the same passion and desire started to follow UGR and lots of shots taken by other gardeners joining the community were soon shared there too.

Day by day, the community just kept on growing and became the biggest online urban gardening community in 2015.

In 2016, with the support of talented contributors, the blog was launched. It has become the key meeting place for beginner and more experienced gardeners looking for ideas, help, and techniques.

At the start of 2017 a wide range of services are offered and UGR supports all projects at every stage.
