Hello, my name is Claudia and I'm a Balconista!

I have always wanted to have a home with a balcony and, when I finally got it, I didn't really know what to do with it and how to get started. Everything for my balcony oasis came from reading about it, finding it and trying it out. That took quite a lot of time and patience. I'm still trying out lots of things and I start every season afresh with new ideas and notions. As well as great successes, there are always things that go awry. And I want to report back about all of it here.

Here you will find ideas, inspiration and information about balcony and city gardening. In other words, tales from the life of a Balconista.

As well as basic knowledge about balcony gardening, I am also reporting about my current balcony projects, ideas from other countries and recipes for all things you can do with your balcony harvest.

Awake your inner Balconista! It's definitely worth it.
