Urban agriculture and biodiversity workshop: gardens in the city
For city dwellers who have always dreamt of nurturing their own garden, our urban agriculture workshop imparts the fundamentals of being an urban farmer and sheds light on the biodiversity challenges within the city.
Tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplants, parsley, coriander, and more will be at your fingertips once you've learned how to grow them in urban settings. Our introductory activity teaches you the techniques to produce fruits and vegetables close to your home, whether it's on a rooftop, a balcony, or your personal courtyard.
You'll also uncover the secrets of hydroponics, a method for growing plants without soil, relying solely on water, light, and minerals.
Don't forget to participate with your entire family. Your kids will delight in immersing themselves in lush vegetation and sampling a variety of edible crops. Plus, there's no mess to worry about since the gardens are raised—fantastic, right?
The concept of urban farming has evolved into a life philosophy that reconciles city living with rural ideals. Urban agriculture has always existed, but it is being reinvented today, expanding its territory. The goal is to make urban residents more self-sufficient when it comes to food.
The second objective of urban gardening is ecological. It aims to preserve our environment while also providing food for consumption. This type of horticulture is based on the principles of permaculture: a process for natural food production in harmony with the surrounding ecosystems. Its aim is to promote biodiversity in urban spaces. Caring for nature, tending to the well-being of humanity, and equitable sharing are the three cornerstones of permaculture.
