Rota’s Garden – Urban Gardening is growing a green future
28. de Maio – 18. de Junho, 18H00
You like it fresh? No place to dig a garden?
Growing plants in containers is an easy way to experience the flavour and
freshness of home-grown vegetables, herbs and fruits.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Gardening
Urban Gardening is the practice of growing plants in containers or bags
instead of planting them in the ground. Most vegetables actually grow really
well in containers and by picking the right plants, we can create our own
urban container garden and grow a fair amount of food in just a few pots. We
are taking a look at urban farming, which offers to make our food as “local”
as possible. By growing what we need near where we live, we decrease “the
food miles” associated with long-distance transportation. We also get the
freshest produce money can buy and we are encouraged to eat in season.
Recycling
Let´s change “waste” materials to our garden. During our first meeting we
will plan our container/bags and after that we try to find interesting stuff to
build our garden (e.g. rice bags, shopping bags, old pots, pallets, etc.) in
Cascais. Here I need your knowledge about this neighborhood and you can
also bring cool objects from home to reduce the time of search.

Concept / Program
to plan – at our first meeting we will talk about the urban gardening
movement and we will find our way to develop a container garden in front of
Rota. It is also very important that we choose the plants and herbs we want
to grow.
to collect – the second meeting is about the recycling part of the workshop:
We will try to find useful objects in restaurants, shops or at the port, beach
and street.
to build – at our third session we build the bags and containers we planned
during our first meeting and we have to decorate them as well (mosaic,
paintings or ropes). Additionally you have the possibility to create your
garden box for your home.
to plant – finally we are ready to plant our garden and see how we can place
it in front of Rota Jovem. We also have to make a plan how we take care
about the plants in future.

ABOUT ME
My Name is Fred and I am a Rota-Volunteer from Germany. I would like
to develop ecological workshops with some craft parts. I have a working
knowledge of gardening and I would like to create a “green” Rota with
you! I really like the idea of self-sufficiency and so we keep our own
chickens and take care of a garden at home.
