How to build a community. New Urbanism and its critics

Introduction Numerous social researchers note that modern societies are characterised by a weakening or even disappearance of communities and communal aspects of life ( Etzioni 1993 ; Putnam 2001 ; Etzioni 2004 ; Putnam 2004 ; Bellah 2007 ). Individualism and the erosion of communal ties bring negative effects in the socio-political domain: alienated individuals do not get involved in social or political activity. That is why many theoretical approaches emphasise the necessity of community rebuilding, and the search for factors which could foster it

Reclaiming Urban Space: A Study of Community Gardens in Poznań

Introduction Contemporary forms of urban gardening are shaped by different actors, from individual persons to whole communities ( Caputo et al. 2016 ). Community gardens belong to the category of those managed collectively by people. Inspired by the US gardens of the 1970s, Latin American urban agriculture, and such movements as Transition Towns and Guerrilla Gardening, community gardens in Europe started to appear quite recently, i.e. in the first decade of the 21st century ( Sondermann et al. 2016 ; Fernández, Morán 2015 ; Rosol 2012a ). Most of them are
