In 2017, another project space was created at the abandoned and often publicly disputed construction site alongside “Masarykova cesta”, right next to the central bus and railway station. Temporary-use and circular economy project “Teren” (Eng. terrain) was thought of by Prostorož, an association aimed at occupying public spaces and transforming them into communal and community-used places with various activities based on the principles of circular economy.
Teren hosts, is used and transformed by users from different associations and even the primary and secondary Waldorf schools in Ljubljana. They have set up a communal space where they experiment with urban gardening, local food production, distribution and consumption, sports and social activities of any kind.
All the equipment at Teren is made out of recycled objects and materials, found at public municipal service Snaga’s centre for waste disposal and reuse and since they’re open to visitors and new users with brand new ideas, it can also be a place for you if you wish to bring something new and interesting into the city fabric. As for being one of the managers of the space, there’s always enough room for newcomers to collaborate and network with locals while using the space for different workshops, picnics, open days, art and music projects, gardening and cooking adventures.
One of the initiatives is Abandoned Plants Sanctuary whose proteges are awaiting spring on a different location at the Ajdovščina underpass in the city centre. You can adopt a plant during their opening hours, every Tuesday from 4 to 6 pm.
