second half of the twentieth century. Old industrial buildings have been degraded. From the beginning of the 1990s, they began to undergo intense processes of regeneration ( Domański & Gwosdz 2010 ). During the regeneration process, the degraded area is prepared for the introduction of a new function ( Maciejewska & Turek 2012 ). Regeneration projects for the renewal of areas require the integration of activities over the long term ( Węglowski 2009 ). In the process of regeneration of old industrial buildings, it is particularly important to protect historical values

and methods 2.1 Study species A. syriaca is a fast growing, perennial, dicotyledonous species native to the eastern lowlands of North America. The species was brought to Europe as an ornamental plant and also for economic utilization (e.g., latex production) in the 19th century, and by now, it has become naturalized in central and southern European countries ( Bagi, 2008 ). In its invaded range, A. syriaca is mainly found in ruderal habitats (railway tracks, roadsides) and on abandoned agricultural land, deforested areas, or degraded areas ( Kelemen et al., 2016

protection and those designated for afforestation, – Indication of activities aimed at integrating the management of water resources and waste management in the metropolitan area, – Defining the directions of development of tourist areas, in particular the Warta River valley, – Indication of priority areas for the development of housing, services and production, based on analysis of the absorptive capacity of the areas and the possibility of equipping them with the necessary technical infrastructure, – Indication of degraded areas requiring urgent revitalization activities

for soil sampling for chemical analysis. On the basis of information on spatial diversification of soil cover resistance and on the volume of annual delivery of chosen pollutants (heavy metals) to the substrate (Fig. 1) degraded areas and areas potentially subject to degradation were delimited. The detailed classification of these areas into five classes is presented in Table 2. Such a detailed recognition of the physical and chemical state of the soil cover, its resistance and degree of potential anthropogeneous threat has created an adequate background for

connected with the process of bringing activities and new urban functions to degraded areas and those which have lost their previous functionality; Densification of urban structures based on market demand and the pressure of the real-estate market resulting in the development of these urban structures. All the above mentioned phenomena often occur simultaneously in neighbouring areas (such as in Wrzeszcz). Their intensity and overlap result from, inter alia , the tendencies typical of development in a post-socialist city which for many decades proceeded differently from

determine the attractiveness of the selected area ( Cichoń 2007 ). Therefore, an effective process of perception is possible in areas of high geodiversity ( Cichoń 2007 , 2008 ). In the context of the experiment, the concept of geographical education in degraded areas may be of particular importance ( Cichoń 2009 ). According to this concept, anthropogenic objects, such as excavations or drainage ditches, also play a role as a means of illustration ( Cichoń 2010 ). Urban areas may be an interesting place for conducting field activities. Contemporary youth is very much

after Poland had joined the Community. So far, the city has absorbed means for the implementation of many projects, mainly infrastructural but also cultural, including joint transborder ones with the neighbouring towns in the Czech Republic. Thanks to support from the EU funds (Sectoral Operational Programme 2004–2006, Regional Operational Programme for the Voivodeship of Lower Silesia 2007–2013), the Wałbrzych authorities were able to proceed with most of the planned urban regeneration projects (which included revitalisation of the degraded areas). In 2004 the Local

’s starting. This has not only increased community participation in shaping those revitalization agendas, but also limited negative reactions to revitalization interventions. Conclusion: taking revitalization literally In the course of the development of new legislation, ‘revitalization’ was formally defined by the Polish Ministry of Investment and Development as: ‘…a complex process of leading degraded areas out of crisis by way of holistic action (interrelated efforts undertaken in the social, economic, spatial-functional, technical and environmental domains), integrating

process of regeneration of a degraded area through comprehensive actions includes regeneration of physical space, the natural environment, and the social environment. The design of the development of the site, owned by the Congregation of the Resurrection, has been based on the idea of creating a space where the monks and the people visiting the Atelier building can co-exist together ( Alexander 1977 ). The integration of various functions in the garden space will allow different social groups to stimulate and inspire each other, giving this place a great chance of

( Pokorski, Siwiec 1998 ; Maćkiewicz at al. 2018 ). The issues mentioned above undoubtedly contribute to the observed dynamic development of a new form of urban gardening in Poland, namely community gardens. They form additional green areas in cities, which allow the utilisation of wasteland, neglected or even degraded areas. Although it is worth remembering that thanks to the established legal regulations – guaranteed by the Act on Family Allotment Gardens of 13th December 2013 (Journal of Laws of 2014, item 40) – the position of allotment gardens in the urban space is
