Overview of the project

Creation of a place for sharing knowledge, providing participants (+- 35) with social, physical and psychological rejuvenation.

This social project combines organic urban gardening, community mixing and the transformation of a derelict site into a convivial space.

Verviers is a town hard hit by unemployment and flooding, and is characterized by its multiculturalism, with a certain ghettoization of different communities. Its town center is dying and its shops are emptying out. The Jardin Partager Potager is a great opportunity to revive this historic and popular downtown district. A Vegetable Garden is, of course, an apprenticeship to greater food self-sufficiency, a step towards healthier, more sustainable food, but it’s also a great place to learn about respecting community life and protecting biodiversity. Participants will increase their capacity to take action in their own environment and neighborhood… (e.g. creation of a neighborhood composter) but also thanks to the training and awareness-raising activities that will be provided.


The "Jardin Partage et Culture" project involves the creation of a 2,500 m² community vegetable garden, the aim of which is to bring residents together in the heart of the city, to create a space for doing and living together.
