Urban agriculture and biodiversity workshop: gardens in the city

You are a city dweller who has always dreamed of growing your own vegetable garden? Our urban agriculture workshop will teach you the basics of growing vegetables in urban soil. You'll also learn about the challenges of urban biodiversity.

Discover Urban Agriculture in Workshops for Adults and Children

Tomatoes, bell peppers, aubergines, parsley, coriander, and more will be at your fingertips once you've learned how to grow them in an urban environment. This introductory activity will teach you the techniques for growing fruit and vegetables close to home. On a roof, on a balcony or in your own garden, you'll learn how to grow plants, harvest them and put them on your plate.

You'll also discover the secrets of hydroponics, the art of growing plants without soil, using only water, light and mineral salts.
Don't forget to bring the whole family. Your children will love plunging into the heart of lush vegetation and tasting the many edible foods. Plus, there's no mess to worry about as the gardens are raised—fantastic, isn't it?

Understanding the Principles of Urban agriculture and Biodiversity

The concept of the urban farm has emerged as a way of life that aims to reconcile urban living with the rural environment. This form of agriculture has always existed, but today it is reinventing itself by expanding its territory. Its aim is to ensure that city dwellers are self-sufficient in food.

The second objective of urban gardening is ecological. It aims to preserve our environment while providing food for consumption. This type of gardening is based on the concept of "permaculture": a process of producing natural food in harmony with the surrounding ecosystems. It aims to promote biodiversity in an urban environment. Caring for nature, caring for people and sharing equally are the three foundations of permaculture.
