Prague falls in love with community gardens more and more – which is a great opportunity for some experience exchange with a city where these green spaces have been thriving for decades. City farms have been part of London’s urban landscape since the end of 1970’s, multi-functioning as a public community hubs featuring not only neighbourhood vegetable patches, but also animals, food markets, goat races and other events, cafés or shops.
The benefits of urban gardening for families and climate, relations with city councils and land owners, funding, integration of underprivileged community members from disabled people to immigrants; all these topics will be covered by Amber Alferoff (London Project Officer, Social Farms & Gardens) in conversation with Jan Richtr (Director, Office of Landscape and Green Infrastructure, IPR Praha) and Prague’s community garden representatives.
The talk is a part of FoodCAMP, a series of events dedicated to the synergies between food and urbanism.
