Thessaloniki Community Grows Public Urban Gardens

As a part of Thessaloniki´s “City as a resource” campaign, Kipos3 is a project where local gardeners work together to create public urban vegetable gardens. ´Kipos´ means garden in Greek, and these spaces transform existing parks, abandoned properties, and outdoor spaces inside public buildings into green areas.
