Transcript of Community gardens in Europe

Community gardens
in Europe

Urban population is now more than half than Earth population. Metropolis are bigger than ever. But something is changing: people all over the world are searching for new solutions to city life.
In our countries more and more people are involved in DiY projects: bicycles, 3D making, culture, food. Many people feel the concret jungle as claustrophobic.
They are trying to go out from the old city model of service and commercial society, to discover the possibility to make different choiches and to be able to self determinate their lives.

Community gardens started 30 years ago in the Usa, as a protest against Councils which were abandoning poor neighborhoods. Now they are spreading all over europe.
A community garden is not only a place where to grow vegetables and flowers: you can also share your knoledge, attend a workshop, do a performance, improving the neighborhood and your life.

In Italy, everybody seems interested in vegetable gardening. There are now 1,1 Mln of urban gardens in public areas, mainly in the north/center areas, but the most are for old people.
But 21 mln of italians do gardening. They do it at least for 5 hours per day, and they are people of every age and cathegory.
Beside the public domain vegetable gardens, there are a lot of private areas (mainly balcony) and out of statistics there are probably 18 millions of small vegetable areas in Italy.
Since in the cities there are vacant lands, more and more people are interested in community gardens, which let people to grow even if they do not have a private or rented space in a common ground open to everybody.
