In Odessa, more than 200 bushes were planted by enthusiasts within the framework of the program of urban farming on the territory of the “Green” theater, writes “Agro-Center” with a reference to “Vzglyad iz Odessy “.
On the first day of work, 25 people planted not only flowers but also vegetables – eggplants, tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons. Parsley and rosemary, lavender and marigold.
Wooden tubs with plants were placed in a place of destroyed benches near the stairs.
According to the curator of the urban farming program Oleksandra Burova, such a phenomenon is now extremely popular in Western Europe, as well as in America, and more often people from cities get engaged in growing products in such small tubs. It brings people who live in cities closer to nature.
Locals happily join the project and wish to grow organic products. Julia, the gardener at the “Green” theater, helps locals care for plants.
