Project description:

'Garden of Freedom’ is an aesthetically ecological research-oriented project aiming at creation of real urban garden on a cornice and balcony of a building on Brīvības street 90. Its main idea is to urge thinking about the idea of urban garden in the centre of town and returning to ground values, traditions and long-forgotten skills such as ability to grow edible and medicinal greens on window sills, balconies and terraces in the city.
