The URBAN GARDENING project will encourage active participation and education the local community members, through setting up and maintaining the urban gardens.
The project aims is to elaborate an innovative educational method to teach soft skills by the work in the garden, e.g. interpersonal communication, team work, management, planning. We believe that urban gardens are places where social cohesion and learning could be strengthened.
The set goal will be achieved by creating a pedagogical approach, an adaptable method; and developing an experimental garden as innovative space of the active pedagogy that encourage the combination of skills and knowledge, sharing of reflection, learning process and collective creation in favour of social intergenerational and intercultural links. Partners will develop the training modules for practitioners with the aim of increasing their skills in supporting vulnerable and threatened of exclusion persons.
We will try to show that establishing and working in the urban gardens is a way to social inclusion, dialogue, sustainable lifestyle, collective knowledge, community spirit and solidarity.
