AGRITECTEURS ELHOUMA

2019 - Present​

-The appropriation of public space by young people through urban agriculture-
Elhouma Khir Urban Farming is an urban greening project that is based on a participatory and collaborative approach and on a circular economic model. It aims to establish a diversified local agriculture.
The project aims to transform unoccupied, abandoned, and in-between public places into collective urban gardens to grow edible fruits and vegetables. This act of urban greening will not only make urban environments greener, thereby contributing to their beautification, but will solve many urban problems, in particular by making it possible to transform urban waste into productive resources. These spaces will become urban community places to inspire and educate the younger generations. Urban agriculture is presented as a solution that enables people to learn how to produce food, promotes local and regional economic development and strengthens the community despite the differences between different social, political and economic divisions:  1.Support, 2.Plan, 3.Design, 4.Realize, 5.Measure, 6.Promote, 7.Study, 8.Train, 9.Mobilize, 10.Connect
