Wellcome to create urban farming community and hear about Aalto Garden Otaniemi competition!
Event on Wednesday, 13 June, 5 pm - 6.30 pm, Otakaari 5
Aalto Garden Otaniemi competition created plans to develop Martti Levón Park, the so-called Ossinlampi area. The winner entry was Uomapuisto designed by student of landscape architecture Sofia Tigerstedt.
Implementation of the plan is currently in progress. Setting for independent farming will be created in the area. In order to launch urban farming activities, the plan is to act within AYY's current association activities or establish a new association. We need you, Aalto student, staff member or Otaniemi resident interested in urban farming!
If you can't participate on 13th of June, please send your contact information by e-mail. In this way, you will get information about the progress of the project and we can chart the conditions for the launching of farming activities.
