I'm living in the midwestern industrial area of germany, but so far, structur of living and industrial apearance ist changing.

The big dirty industry is gone and the places left from it are getting green. Parks are growing, where once smokestacks shaped the landscape. These parks are pools for living, culture, arts and nature. Rare species come back here.

Here i show you one example, we visited yesterday. An old coalmine getting green: The Maximilian Park in Hamm/ Germany

A large Greenhouse is home for tropical butterflies, 2 art exhibitions, one indoor, one outdoor are brakeing up the strukture of the landscape, native birds are singing in the trees...

For more look at the pictures:
