The project of the urban garden Jhonny Cirillo is aimed at providing a second chance for some young people as an alternative to prison detention.
The project, conceived as a public space, is composed of 4 main areas:
– a cultivation terrace for aromatic plants and fruit trees, characterized by educational paths;
– a multifunctional wooden pavilion conceived as a space for the sale and processing of agricultural products, exhibition space, or reception space during events. The pavilion will be dotted with brick structures that will border outdoor study rooms;
– an area dedicated to events, art, theatre, and music;
– an area for breeding and beekeeping.
All this will be accompanied by a series of interventions aimed at soil regeneration.
The construction of this place will be done by training courses and do-it-yourself workshops, bringing together skills in permaculture, computational design, DIY construction in wood and masonry, naturalistic engineering, sustainable design and much more.
This project will not simply be an urban garden. Together we want to build a place of hope, a place of change, because even those who have done wrong deserve a second chance to start growing their future again.
