MARGHERITA GALANTE

 

I am an innovative designer with six years’ experience in landscape design, landscape planning, projects management, environmental education and community garden delivering thanks to my work in different landscape architecture firms and in Permaculture Barcelona association. I had worked in partnership with private and public stakeholders, wildlife trust and local community association.

In my professional environment I have propensity in visual and oral communication to involved people. Indeed I like hand drawing, watercolour and models. I  use these techniques to delivered hight standard quality design and during participate design process, informative meetings and children workshops.

I am proactive, organised and I have an efficient approach to completing work within tight deadlines. I have the ability to build effective relationships with colleagues and clients. I am always showing natural leadership in teamwork and also performance initiative and creativity in design quality.

Values and attitude

I love gardening, I was involved in two community garden projects and actually I have a vegetable roof garden. That’s why I also knew personally the benefits of that practice. Nevertheless I strongly believe that city gardening and green space in general have benefits on improving social connectivity’s in neighbourhood. Also community gardens have a relevant role in environmental education for future urban generation, they are the local start point for a large-scale resilience in food security and human welfare.
