In this project, we are implementing the environmental workshops School of the Young Urban Gardener for young people from the Biskupice municipality. We are teaching them gardening, garden design, plant cooking and building insect hotels. The 30 young people taking part in the workshops will plan and carry out planting in a concrete courtyard by the community centre. As a result of the project, Biskupice will gain a new, youth-friendly, green place for meetings and creative activities where gardening workshops will be held. During the School of the Young Urban Gardener workshops, the youngsters will learn innovative gardening techniques, such as designing vertical gardens and potted gardens. In addition, they learn how to grow edible plants and how to make the urban garden a pet- and insect-friendly place. As part of the project, we organise inspiring trips to interesting places from ecological point of view (such as a botanical garden, forest, show farms or urban gardens), as well as an integration-survival camp. We hold meetings and consultations in the emerging urban garden. We are implementing workshops in time-lapse photography. At least 15 time-lapse movies will be created by young people showing the work carried out in the garden. In addition, we will build at least 15 nesting boxes for birds.
