About GreenLab Berlin

GreenLab Berlin is a spin-off from the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin. The fertilisers were developed by the Institutes for Agricultural and Horticultural Science by two agricultural engineers. This project combined their love of gardening, especially fruit cultivation, with the research to produce a fertiliser from organic waste materials.

In 2013, the GreenLab Berlin team brought the products “Blümchenfutter” and “Pimp my Gärtchen” to the market. We added our first organic, vegan soil in 2017. In the future, we would like to develop further original products, which are produced from ecologically produced raw materials and are eco-efficient, for use in homes and gardens!

With its innovative business idea, GreenLab Berlin has already won several start-ups and ideas:

  • Taspo Award 2014 “Business Idea of the Year”
  • Green Alley Award 2014
  • Grand Prize of the Berlin Environment Festival 2015
  • Ben & Jerry‘s Join our Core 2015
