The initiative launched by the Pametno for Split and Dalmatia party in 2020 is being implemented at the location they proposed from the beginning, at the Turkish Tower, reports Slobodna Dalmacija.

According to this party, Mayor Ivica Puljak recently issued a Conclusion which will turn a part of the land owned by the City, with an area of 4,325 m2, into an urban garden, all within the Pilot Project RU: RBAN, URBACT III Second wave which the City of Split is implementing with the Association for Permaculture.

“We have found a city plot of land around the Turkish Tower which will be used for an urban garden within this project. Our fellow citizens will be able to plant fruits, vegetables, and other desired crops without the need to go out of town. This is how you can live in an apartment, and at the same time cultivate a part of the land and in that way contribute to the household budget and joy at home, which is indispensable when you pick your own salad, chard, and other things. While we are waiting to plant the first vegetables at Turkish Tower, we will continue to push for urban gardens in other parts of the city, for which we are looking for ways and locations,” said Branimir Urlić from the Pametno for Split and Dalmatia party.

“We are proud that our long-advocated idea is finally being realized. Just like we announced in the election program, Split is a green and wooded city in which our fellow citizens spend their free time in the open air. This urban garden is another step closer to realization,” concluded Kristina Vidan, president of the Pametno for Split and Dalmatia party.
