Das Baumhaus is the project space of the Berlin LebensMittelPunkte network: project office, platform, LMP prototype and living lab all-in-one. Baumhaus is the first point of contact for existing LMP initiatives and any projects that want to become one.
Das Baumhaus is a social-ecological project space in Wedding, that has been organizing and hosting neighborhood-based activities around food transition for many years. With the project ‘Werkstatt LMP’, Baumhaus launched the LMP Network in 2020 (see About Us). Since then, Baumhaus has been a place for the development of the LMP Network in Berlin. It also organizes funding projects for the network and cooperation projects with scientists. Das Baumhaus is itself an LMP initiative.

PLATFORM, PROTOTYPE AND LIVING LAB
Das Baumhaus offers a platform for exchange and networking to jointly develop our processes. LebensMittelPunkte is an open project that is constantly evolving. We learn through experience and are part of the “ecosystem” of actors in Berlin and Brandenburg who are committed to food systems change, from food initiatives and regional producers to the city and government administrations.
Through cooperation projects with scientists, Baumhaus becomes a “living lab” where civil society, local initiatives and neighbors can all systematically advance the development of LMP in Berlin with direct support from scientific analysis. The LMP practices in Baumhaus – in the areas of Depot, Kitchen and Meeting Point – are the prototypes for the LMP Network, a best practice example of how a LebensMittelPunkt with weekly activities can look like.
