Both Nikola and her husband grew up in the countryside and are happy that the rooftop farm exists: "It's great to be able to show our children where food comes from".
I really appreciate the gardens in our cities. They provide us with new communities and discoveries - a strong sense of togetherness across generations - including those that come after us. Gardening opens our curiosity and creates a relaxed, informal setting where season experiences are repeated year after year.
Historically, nature and our garden have provided the setting when we humans seek solutions. And once again, nature is playing the role as that provider. Therefore, it also makes good sense that the mindset of urban developers is turning nature-based and more collaborative.
I believe that such two landscapes as the rooftop farm and the “wild” of St. Kjeld’s Square, gives us human beings a physical and social environment which will lead us towards a nature-related consciousness. While the rooftop farm provides the setting for making, meeting, eating, discussing and addressing major climate and environmental issues, the wilderness fosters our curiosity and provides an aesthetic that at the same time reflects the irrational and the sensitive - that is what is at stake today.
