The key values of this concept begin by removing alternatives that are the leading cause of unhealthy lifestyles. The primary city of study, which is Berlin, has a high proportion of overweight citizens and clear distinction of socioeconomic status. The group has used this concept to try and improve the diet for all the citizens in Berlin, whether of high or low socioeconomic status, by abundantly providing fresh and healthy food at a lower cost to the community while also making sure that they are doing so at a sustainable production for the environment. This group has attempted to solve not one but many problems that numerous cities around the globe are facing on a day-to-day basis.
The concept has been named The SuperGarden as it is a concept that is trying to solve various problems that have been affecting the city of Berlin and other cities around the Earth. They have addressed the problems as “Challenges” and have divided them into different sub-topics such as Diets & Economics, Environment, Culture, Technology & Economics, and Policy. This has made it easier for the group to use division of labour to attack each problem by doing thorough research so that they can come out successful. The research was helpful not only in tackling the problems but they have also found more opportunities like the "We are fed up!" ("Wir haben es satt!") demonstration which is against industrial farming practices and for more sustainable agriculture. This attracts up to 30,000 people each year.
