In mid-September in St. Petersburg there will be a two-day action “Give me a living!”, In which citizens will be able to exchange plants. On September 14, from 12:00 to 16:00 you can bring your flower pot (both home and garden) to New Holland, and on the 15th - in the Miracle anti-cafe from 17:00 to 20:00. In "New Holland" they will also be taught to decorate seedling pots, there on this day the LavkaLavka harvest festival takes place. Similar promotions, similar to bookcrossing that has already become popular in Russia, often take place in Europe and the USA.
The action is organized by the creators of the free educational program "Cottage in the City". Girls write that gift decoration of flowers and the presence of care instructions are welcome. In the days of the action, Dacha accepts books and magazines on landscape design, gardening, botany, agricultural technology, ecology and a healthy lifestyle for its Green Library (based on the Lermontov Library branch on Nikolskaya Square, 2).
In addition to exchanging plants, Dacha will conduct an educational walk along Kamenny Island. Participants will gather acorns and chestnuts there to plant them in their yards. Invited experts will tell you how to care for them after. The walk starts on September 15 at 13:00 from the "Black River".
coordinator "Summer cottages in the city"
We want St. Petersburg to become a flourishing city. Plant exchanges are a fun and affordable way to add greenery to urban courtyards and apartments. I personally prepare 5 plants in homemade pots, and the team does not lag behind. I think we’ll bring about 15 in total. We have chosen quite youth sites, and within the framework of the “Give Live” campaign we would like to attract this particular audience. But, of course, we are waiting for everyone.
