The edible cities movement is expanding around the globe where public areas have edible plants planted in them that are accessible to everyone.
The existence of edible cities, always initiated by the inhabitants, gives a sense of food security, a connection with nature and enhances a sense of community, responsibility and cooperation among people. This project is the first small step in this direction and consists of landscaping a neglected plot of land on Giuseppe Duella Street. The plot is cultivated with fruits of old varieties and edible seedlings according to the principles of creating an edible wood. In addition, a wooden canopy was built with a table and benches, which resulted in a space for gathering and socialising for the street’s residents, especially retirees who are already active in their community.
