Marjaniemi Cottage Allotment



Marjaniemi cottage allotment offers a village life-style, close to nature and a social community belief connected by 100 years of history. 

Living with naure is a central concept to the Finnish way of urban life. Having the possiblity of being close to nature in the very heart of the city near home has been part of finnish urbanity for nearly a hundred years. In recent years, the cottge allotment idea has undergone a renaissance as more and more city-dwellers become aware of the possibility of having the countryside on one's doorstep without necessarily driving a long way to a far-off summer residence. 

Marjaniemi garden alootments was founded in 1946. There're 305 gardens in total, each with a small wooden cottage about 33m2.
