KOKOZA – building community gardens and composts
Brief Description A Prague based social initiative KOKOZA builds community gardens and composts, shares experiences and knowledge and encourages others to build their own community gardens and composts. It aims to integrate urban gardening, local produce and composting in a food loop. The name KOKOZA is a wordplay (koza means goat in English) and abbreviation of KOmunitní KOmpost a ZAhrada (Community Compost and Garden). KOKOZA strives to engage socially disadvantaged people in their activities, primarily as a work-training programme and in a sheltered workshop that produces mobile gardens, “seed-bombs” and composters. As a complementary activity KOKOZA maps existing community gardens, composts and composters.
