About the Event


Small changes in practice and habits of youth can lead to great effect of having a

healthy and active life. This project will focus on discovering and building healthy

habits of youth by gardening, learning how producing one's own food is not so

hard and understanding how vegetables and plants gives many benefits to

oneself and the surrounding environment. Moreover, it will focus on the question

of how gardens can become attractive places for younger generations and have a

sustainable influence on their way of living.

The objectives of the project are:

1. To improve the knowledge and skills of youth with fewer opportunities in

gardening practice by providing them with an opportunity to peer-learn about

urban and organic gardening, permaculture and seed saving.

2. To promote a healthy lifestyle and habits of youth through contact with nature

while gardening, doing manual work and have outdoor activities;

3. To raise awareness of youth on pollution issues such as pesticides and plastic

pollution in agricultural practice, and its effects on human health and

environment by reconnecting youth with the origins of food through gardening

Participants profile
