What you'll do
We’ll plant, sow or prune according to season and experience the magic of urban gardens that get cities greener and more friendly. Discover an urban oasis and help take care the garden’s flowerbeds, in a journey through history starting from ancient Roman plants you'll discover ecological gardening techniques to use back at home.
About the organisation
Zappata Romana founded in 2012 promotes the realization of urban gardens in Rome. We have a mission: empower the spontaneous initiatives of Roman citizens who care about green urban spaces and activate themselves for the common good reclaming abandoned areas. Zappata Romana created and maintains the Hortus Urbis, an educational garden in the Appia Antica Park.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Zappata Romana.

Where you'll be
We'll be in our community garden near the sacred Almone river in the Appia Antica Park where history and nature blend together in the first garden with ancient Roman plants in Italy. The recovered abandoned site hosts plants selected from those quoted by Columella, Pliny the Elder, Cato and Pompei.
