Postane Garden, located on Postane Terrace, focuses on edible plant cultivation in urban areas, circular food system and food justice. Postane Terrace aims to be a good example of urban agriculture and become a center for research, experience, and training on horticulture. 11 square meters of the total terrace area of 105 square meters is reserved for cultivating aromatic herbs, vegetables and fruit trees. A food garden in Postane Terrace has been created based on sustainable food cultivation by using the waste from all units of Postane with the compost system, which can store water with the rainwater harvesting system.
Since 17 August 2021, we organize Open Garden days and aim to offer a space for experience, interaction and education. Every Tuesday an expert from İyiEkim, which is one of our stakeholders, teaches about Postane Garden and the basics of urban gardening.
We aspire Postane Garden to become one of Istanbul’s focal points on ecological food production and sustainability and hope to keep organizing gatherings and workshops on urban gardening.
