Community Eco-gardens (with vegetable boxes and benches)
Specially organized community gardens in different areas of Helsinki. Community gardens are a great way to bring people together, promote healthy activities and are good for the environment.
During the pandemic many Helsinki residents have in a way rediscovered the nature of the city. Daily routines and the lockdown have strongly affected us, so that we see our green spaces as potential assets. We are aware of the high demand for well-organized outdoor spaces where people could spend time alone or with their loved ones, make picnics, practice their hobbies, learn about nature, etc.
This proposal suggests creating specially organized outdoor community spaces (community gardens) in different areas of Helsinki. Community gardens are a great way to bring people together, promote healthy activities and are good for the environment.
-Installed vegetable boxes would be available for people interested in growing vegetables and/or flowers;
-Installed tables with benches will allow residents to have outside picnics with their families and friends.
The ultimate goal is to have organized outdoor spaces in all city areas in the future. It would be great if recycled materials could be used in this project.
Budgeting (discussed with the City experts):
-5 community gardens in 5 different city areas (2nd option - 3 community gardens in 3 different city areas - if the proposal's cost becomes too expensive)
-Each community garden would include 20 vegetable boxes, 1 water system container, 1 tool box, 1 table area with benches.
