Comuna 13 Garden
The stairway community in Comuna 13 banded together to renovate a public garden space. The initial project involved a lost of waste removal and a general garden renovation. Vegetables and fruits were planted for the community, a hanging garden was setup, a fresh lick of paint was given to the whole area and a sunflower mural painted. An iconic sunflower toilet planter was also used to extend the garden.
In 2018 we are planning to continue maintenance and elaboration of the garden. Apart from adding more plants we wish to add a 13 sculpture made from recyclables, hold ongoing events and also install something to shade the courtyard area so it becomes more utilised by the community. We are working with the stairway community alongside MIEO, TierraLab and other volunteers to extend the project and make it an ongoing process.
