We founded Václavka at the turn of the year 2015/2016 and it was our first big project. It is situated in the atrium of Bedřicha Václavka dormitory and it’s the first student community garden in the Czech Republic. Its main goal is to show that it is possible to grow our own vegetables and herbs even in the city. The gathered herbs can be used for tea making and the vegetables for cooking. We know that having a first-hand experience of growing your own plants might be rare today, but it is truly important. The next aim is to strengthen and enliven the student community. Thanks to the community garden and some modifications outside the atrium, the Václavka became a favourite place for relaxing, studying, meetings or barbecues.
Throughout the whole year we organize various events, for example, student breakfasts, concerts or beloved punch drinking at Christmas time. This project was realized in the cooperation with Accommodation and Dining Office UP (Správa kolejí a menz UP).
