This paper examines the community garden Lersøgrøftens Integrationsbyhaver as a temporary urban space. The aim is to investigate how the urban political institutions has an influence on the gardens opportunities to evolve, and which challenges this creates for the association. Furthermore we wish to describe the historic development which has shaped Haraldsgadekvarteret in which the garden lies. With the use of Pierre Bourdieus theory the emphasis of the paper is on illustrating power structure and conflicts in the association but also in the urban policy field. Focusing notions of Bourdieus terms habitus, capital and field we have analyzed our collected empirical data consisting of interviews and observations of members of the garden and a consultant on the integration aspect of the urban renewal of Haraldsgadekvarteret. We also find it relevant to use Bent Flyvbjergs Phronetic method, who as Bourdieu’s theory shows the power relations in planning. We are using Flyvbjergs Phronetic method as a setting of the paper, because he differs from Bourdieu in focusing on counterpower and change, and therefore gives an opportunity to break with the asymmetric power relations. Our analysis shows that the urban political institutions sets limits for the community garden, which gives the association something to fight for. This joint fight for the associations visions for the garden causes a fellowship across different cultures and social groups. Being a part of the fellowship results in a feeling of ownership towards the local area.
