“URBAN GARDENING – The Urban Gardening Role in Improving of Adults’ Skills and Community Growth” is a Key Action 2 Strategic Partnership – Development of Innovation in the field of Adult Education – co-funded with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme. The project will encourage active participation and lifelong learning of local community members through setting up and maintaining urban gardens. 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.
The objectives of the project are:
To exchange existing practices and develop training and learning resources which support the professional development of practitioners and educators in the field of adult education and urban gardening.
To monitor the impact of the URBAN GARDEN method on target users’ in the participating countries.
The project’s main phases include:
- Collecting good practices and other resources.
- Preparing the training method and materials for trainer: Guide for trainers.
- Organizing the training for trainers from partner institutions (Short term joint staff training event).
- Piloting the developed method of education through the gardening in the partner countries.
- On the basis of the experiences from the pilot phase, preparing the final version of the Toolkit „Urban gardens as spaces for adult education” – Intellectual Output
- Dissemination events to promote the Toolkit in each partner country.
