It loans out cultivation containers or allows people to plant around the bases of trees. Anyone who commits to setting up and maintaining a revegetation apparatus in a public space is granted the authorization to occupy the public domain.

The city offers a series of shared gardens — friendly, lively places integrated in the neighbourhood, which encourage cross-generational and cross-cultural interaction. They are experimental grounds for environmentally-friendly practices and contribute to maintaining urban biodiversity and the dissemination of knowledge.

The city provides tips via workshops, which enable it to reach a wide audience: individuals and groups, as well as novices and enthusiasts. Residents thus become the primary agents of greening the city.
