Classification and function of community gardens in the city (Case study from Bratislava)
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on the identification and classification of community gardens in the Bratislava. It concerns a pilot study focused on community gardens in Bratislava (Slovakia). Community gardens in a post-socialist city can be considered as a modern phenomenon despite the fact that urban gardening was present in the city even during the communist regime in the form of allotments gardens and garden colonies. The main methods used to research community gardens include a questionnaire survey of members of community gardens and semi-structured interviews with administrators of community gardens. Different classification criteria (location, size, number of members, and ownership) are used in the paper to identify community gardens. Although the primary function of community gardens in Bratislava is the food production, formation of communities also plays an important role.
