Megálló Community Center created a community garden with 12 parcels in Szeged-Tarján, sokszinuvidek.hu reoprts.
Its essence is not the quantity of produced vegetables, but the building a stronger community. 11 families got the 7-8 square meter-parcels, the creators want to continue the initiative next year.
According to sokszinuvidek.hu, the MASZK Association wanted to open the garden in March, but they are not late, because there are already plants in the garden.
The association gave the equipments for the gardening, so the „owners” just have to pay the price of watering.The public garden is in the court of the house of MASZK, and the gardeners can ask advices from the community. Ont he courtyard there will be a common spice box, too, in which you will be able to find herbs, spices and things necessary to a kitchen garden. The garden is 100 percent chemcial-free. Andrea Újházy, organizer of the project said, that everyone can take the food home, but they are also planning common cooking.
Gábor Rosta, head of the Urban Gardens Association said, this is a sociological experiment. He founded a „crisis garden” in Budapest, the model of the gardens of the Great Depression in 1929, sokszinuvidek.hu says.
Since the call in April, a lot of people want to join in the project. You should check the Facebook profile of the association whether there is an empty parcel, which you could use.
