Digging into Community Gardens Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

Intense urbanization and the fiscal crisis has decimated greenspace in Thessaloniki, Greece over the past century, leaving citizens unengaged with their communities. Our project assisted Eleftheria Gavriilidou, the Executive Director of the nationally recognized community garden, Kipos3, to further understand the impact of community gardens on their participants. This knowledge was collected and used to identify unused spaces that have the potential to be transformed into new community gardens. Though significant potential for community gardens exists in the city of Thessaloniki, there is a lack of citizen awareness. The use of outreach campaigns or other educational activities to inform citizens about the benefits of community gardens may help engage individuals with their communities.
