(en) Poland, rozbrat EMPLOYEE INITIATIVE - OPENING OF THE BOGDANKA FREE CITY GARDEN [machine translation]

Date Thu, 6 May 2021 10:28:14 +0300


On April 24, the official opening of the Bogdanka Free City Garden (WOMB) took place. Thank you to everyone involved in the preparation of this event and to everyone who came on Saturday! ---- The program of the day started with the performance of Samba Halastra / RoR Poznan ---- On that day, the participants of this momentous event awaited, among others workshops on the construction of nesting boxes for birds, permaculture crops, a lecture on the life of animals in the city garden, screening of the film "Concrete. Why does the government love concrete? " and a discussion on the destruction of urban green areas and gentrification, attended by representatives of the Rozbrat collective, Koalicja ZaZ Zielony Poznan and Kolektyw Kapielisko .

There were also yoga classes and a shooting range, where you could test your effectiveness in shooting with a bow, crossbow and slingshot. Among the youngest ones, the zip line was very popular. Tea, coffee and sweet snacks were provided by a wonderful REVENGE IN THE KITCHEN .

We were positively surprised by the turnout - it was openly gathered by a lot of people of all ages. Some of them brought their seedlings to the previously prepared soil. We spent several hours together. During, apart from the above-mentioned events, everyone and everyone interested could find out what WOMB is and on what principles it functions.

As a reminder, the area where WOMB is located has been the garden of ROD Bogdanka for years. The developer, Darex from Warsaw, has put forward claims against the land on which it is planning to build a housing estate. The gardeners were intimidated with heavy fines in the event of not leaving their plots, several arbors were set on fire. In November last year, Darex, assisted by the police, tried to take over the area, but the Green Wave , the Rozbrat collective and people concerned about the attempt to develop green areas blocked the developer and, in agreement with former allotment owners, took care of the place. The cleaned plots of land and shared space will give all interested parties the opportunity to cultivate, organize and participate in various types of events or spend their free time among the greenery.

WOMB is located in the West Greenway Wedge belt. Poznan Wedges are something unique on a European scale - they were supposed to connect city parks with suburban forests. Their main goal is to protect the waters and ventilate the city, so they are an invaluable weapon in the fight against global warming and drought. As such, they require strict protection and we must not allow them to be poured over with concrete for the sake of private interests
