Project description

The main purpose of the research project is to analyse the actual and potential impact of collective urban gardening in counteracting environmental inequalities and in linking academic research on the most pressing contemporary political and social issues (particularly in the area of urban studies) to the practical engagement in material and daily ‘planning and planting’ practices in the urban context.
