Urban Farm

Urban farm, scali del Refugio, LivotnoI found this “fattoria urbana” (urban farm) on the “Scali del Refugio”, in the Venezia quarter.Urban farm, scali del Refugio, LivotnoThese stone-paved slopes from street level to water level are quite common along the canals of Livorno, but farming on them was unheard of until now.

Some people are so starved for greenery that they will plant in the smallest and least likely places.

I will get you another photo of the red bench in front of Lena's.

I've heard about pallet gardens but never seen one.
The setting for yours is a surprising combination of hard and soft.

I enjoy photographing walls like this. Creative crannies too.

El mundo de las cosas antiguas, de las piedras que siempre estuvieron en el mismo sitio.

Saludos y un abrazo.

Wonderful capture! I read about urban gardening in Vienna, but so far I didn´t discover any examples. I will watch out!

It always amazes me some of the most unlikely places that you find folk growing things and why not it certainly cheers things up.
