Zoom In: Urban Hives, Gardens in Parking Lots
Dec 13 2021
“I am very proud of my team and being surrounded by experts. I am also excited for the response of the local community every time we implemented a new project.”
What They Do:
The Urban Hives is a public intervention that introduces gardens to parking lots using a low-cost, modular structure. The structure enables urban farming, mitigates pollution and provides an open green space for the local community.
“I started working on the project because of the scarcity of green spaces in Beirut and in response to climate change. It benefits local communities in the city at large. I applied to the GIMED program to learn the tools i need to turn this idea into a sustainable business solution. Through the mentoring I received, I have acquired a better understanding of the possible business models, which is the most complex side of this project, as it stands between a community initiative and green commerce.
