It started out with this little seed bomb we bought in a shop (below) while looking for a place to plant it, we realized that this little piazzetta we were standing in was pretty abandoned, and uncared for on the account of all the broken liquor bottles, the non-functioning water fountain full of garbage, and the dead plants.
We thought it would be a fun project to clean the little place up, put in some plants (maybe paint some benches) and just give a little love to this neglected neighbourhood spot.
We started sweeping and picking out all the garbage in the morning and besides the people who looked on with odd curiosity, we got a load of compliments as well. One lady even gave us 5 euro as a thanks / to buy drinks or gelato. I hope it inspires other people to clean up spots around their homes too!
Here's the broken water fountain, with an ivy plant in it now! Hopefully this little guy will keep people from throwing trash inside.
