The network has been coordinated for the last two years by the city of Rome, based on the good practice of the "Urban Garden Management Model in Rome", in order to transfer experiences and practices to three interrelated themes in geographically remote EU cities:
· Development of skills for the organization of urban gardens,
· Inspiring and educating people for the management of urban gardens (Gardeners) and
· Urban gardening governance and regulations.
The network includes six EU cities - Vilnius, Caen, Krakow, Coruιαa, Lures and Thessaloniki, which is represented by K.E.D.TH.
