Project 9 - Community Gardens Italy.jpg

Community gardens – Lombardy, Italy (2023)

With the "Community Gardens" project, we are primarily targeted people with disabilities who live in the area around the BASF site. We were supported by two partners: Maieutica and CADIAI - together we aimed to integrate people with psychophysical disabilities into everyday life through the development of socio-rehabilitative pathways and active community participation. Specifically, the project consisted of creating two raised gardens. Materials for the realization and technical support were provided by BASF. People with disabilities were involved in the design of the gardens and in their management and experienced visits from schools and citizens. In 2023, a total of 40 people with disabilities, supported by 20 teachers, were already involved in the project.
