Orti Urbani Garbatella – saving the green, enjoying the food

Orti Urbani Garbatella is an urban gardening initiative born in 2008 in a southern neighbourhood of Rome, emerged on the premise and need of requalification of an abandoned park. Over the last years its activities contributed to a progressive increase of the aesthetic value of the area and to a regeneration of the local community, thanks to the new space available for working together and sharing time and ideas.
