Gardeniser plus: connecting community gardens

Gardeniser plus: connecting community gardens

On 28th and 30th October, Charlotte from MEXPERT participated in the online Transnational Project meeting on the Gardeniser Plus project.

This project will allow 70 individuals to benefit from European “internships” in one of the partner country and work and learn from a community garden in that local reality. MEXPERT, for example will send and host 8 people!

Despite the global pandemic, all partners were able to meet and discuss the project plan as a whole, what we expect and we want to achieve by the project’s end in mid 2022. Changes are, of course, expected with travel and mobility amongst the partnership limited but we are however hopeful that 2021 will bring new opportunities for meeting physically and “in person”.

The hope is to continue the work Gardeniser values that was achieved through previous/ongoing initiatives Gardeniser and then Gardeniser Pro.

The project will mainly consist of three phases: training of trainers based on pre-existing training developed in the framework of the European projects Gardeniser and then Gardeniser
Pro mixed with discussion about their own reality and practices, organisation of learning activities to enable this exchange of good practice, then restitution at local level with
workshops.

The project involves 7 countries, for more details head over to our project page on our website; http://mexpert.se/portfolio_page/gardeniser-plus/
