PLONY is a bottom-up community garden initiative, created by two students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and is envisioned to become a place where individuals can come together and grow their own vegetables in the city, children can learn about nature and citizens can spend their free time.
The Gdańsk Shipyard has a long tradition when it comes to greenery and gardening. With the community garden, we do not only celebrate the area’s history but also allow communities to grow and create a sense of social cohesion.
Moreover, the space is a response to the need to promote a sustainable lifestyle and pro-ecological education as well as the development of cities towards a circular economy. In addition, the project enables active recreation in a city where green space is limited and allotments are difficult to access.
During the summer the space will be filled with a wide program of activities, like: lectures, workshops, tours, or film screenings.
PLONY is opening in June. To find out more about the space and keep yourself updated on upcoming events, be sure to follow PLONY on Facebook.
