Opening Day Community Garden for mild intellectually disabled students in Székesfehérvár

May 24, 2018

On the 25th of April 2018 the opening day of the Community Garden for mild intellectually disabled students took place in Székesfehérvár. CTRIA team, students, teachers and other stakeholders shared this nice moment by expressing their impressions about the big tangible result of the AgriGo4Cities project, namely the educational garden itself. All the guests were completely satisfied, and students excited to show what they – as actively actors - have planned.

 

As Interreg Youth Volunteer in Central Transdanubia Regional Innovation Agency and involved in AgriGo4Cities project I could say that it was a great and interesting experience. Through this European project I had the opportunity to see how the bottom-up approach works, and it works! Planning and implementing the community garden requires the help, the ideas and the creativity of the society. The aim is to integrate participatory approach into decision-making processes by increasing socio-economic inclusion of vulnerable groups and to promote sustainable urban development. The community garden is the result through which this social inclusion idea is materializing.

 

So, as volunteer I would like to say thanks to IVY project and to CTRIA team because as the students involved I can also benefit from this community European spirit.
