URBAN GARDENING – The Urban Gardening Role in Improving of Adults’ Skills and Community Growth” is a Key Action 2 Strategic Partnership, co-funded with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme. The project aims to elaborate an innovative educational method to educate soft skills related to urban gardening, e.g. interpersonal communication, team work, management, planning. We believe that urban gardens are places where social cohesion and learning could be strengthened.

This toolkit targeted at any people or organization eager to use urban gardening as an educational tool. 7 European countries (Poland, greece, Spain, Bulgaria; France, Turkey,Italy) have designed this toolkit in which are presented useful keys to develop transversal skills by taking urban garden as a support. Because you learn by gardening, creating a composter, exchanging with your neighbor, getting rich reading technical documents. The tools offer help, ways of doing things that will enrich the garden and its users. This is not an exhaustive guide but a proposal for a process that everyone will have to adapt to their environment and to the public for whom the garden is intended. Indeed, each garden is unique because it responds to particular requests. This toolkit aims to propose an approach that will allow different actors to create an urban garden, revitalize it, taking into account the diversity of individuals, groups and gardens.


The aim of the project was to develop an innovative method of teaching soft skills through gardening, e.g. interpersonal communication, teamwork, management, planning. We invite you to use our multilingual Toolkit.
