Urban gardens can influence communities in different ways as they can be built in different landscapes. Urban gardens are recognized as places for learning new skills and sharing knowledge, places that encourage healthy attitudes towards climate change and environment protection. They are also seen as places that offer potential for strengthening the community and developing good neighbourly relations. Urban gardens open up numerous possibilities; they can be created on a residential building lot upon tenants’ initiative, or they can be formed in schoolyards or student campuses.
Zona 00 started developing the idea of urban gardens in 2013. The first common urban garden in Rijeka was built in the area between Škurinjska draga and Brašćine-Pulac. The project was carried out with the support of the City of Rijeka and its main idea was to set up a “neighbourhood garden”. Zona 00 conveys the message that we can grow our own food on a tiny plot in an urban area, look after our health and feel the magic of life.

Zona 00 – Nina Sindičić: Urbani vrt
Utjecaj urbanih vrtova na zajednicu raznolik je kao i krajolici na kojima se uspostavljaju. Prepoznaju se kao mjesta edukacije i razmjene različitih znanja i vještina, izgradnje aktivnog stava prema klimatskim promjenama i zaštiti okoliša, mjesta važna za osnaživanje zajednice i dobrosusjedskih odnosa. Mogućnosti zajedničkih vrtova su brojne; mogu nastati u okućnici zgrade kao inicijativa stanara ili se mogu oformiti unutar škole kao školski vrtovi ili primjerice unutar sveučilišnog kampusa…
Zona 00 je započela s razvojem ideje urbanih vrtova u Rijeci 2013. godine. Prvi zajednički urbani vrt u Rijeci, u suradnji s Gradom Rijeka, udruga uspostavlja kao tzv. kvartovski vrt i to na području između MO Škurinjska draga i MO Brašćine – Pulac. Na Spajalicu Udruga donosi jestivi komadić ideje s porukom da je moguće i na najmanjoj površini u urbaniziranoj sredini uzgojiti vlastitu hranu, pobrinuti se za vlastito zdravlje, a pritom osjetiti magiju života!
