Share Messina will also have its urban gardens. Yesterday the city council approved the proposal for a Pd and 5 Stars with 22 votes in favor. They will arise in the place of green areas or disused spaces and now in the throes of decay and abandonment. The city of the Strait actually follows a model of regeneration already adopted in Rome, Turin, Naples, Bologna, Florence and Rovereto. The gardens can be assigned by public tender to individual citizens, associations, families, committees, schools, refugees and asylum seekers. The 5 Stars rejoice. “The proposed resolution, already approved by the Commission on 11 June – explains Giuseppe Fusco – is the synthesis of two individual proposals
presented by me and my colleague Alessandro Russo, then merged into a single act signed by the two groups . Urban vegetable gardens are spaces
intended for cultivation, and can be built in areas free from constructions, in the suburbs, on roofs and terraces, as well as in abandoned spaces and buildings, allowing citizens to
regain possession of parts of the city denied, considering the many areas owned by the municipal state property that are not used or in degraded conditions. in recent years. Thanks to the favorable vote of the Council – continues Fusco – the city will be able to enjoy undeniable advantages from an environmental, social and urban point of view, with the possibility of protecting agricultural biodiversity, promoting the short agri-food chain and encourage sociality and inclusion, with the active involvement of the elderly, people at risk of social exclusion or migrants included in the Sprar reception circuit. Furthermore, the creation of urban gardens, which does not involve any expenditure commitment for the Administration, will allow to combat the hydrogeological instability and to involve young people and schools “.
