The ecological dislocation of modern era clearly presents the dependence on the living ecosystem of our society and questions the present profit-oriented, individualist economical system, which drastically exploits the natural environment. In the context of an accelerating global environmental crisis that disproportionately affects the world’s poorest, an environmentally sensitive approach to social work practice has never been more important (Boetto 2016). In this paper I am analyzing the connection between the ecological and social ideologies within the opportunity provided by community gardens. I am introducing the consequences of a socially sensitive regeneration project that occurred in one of the most disadvantageous parts of the 8th district of Budapest. One of the elements of this project was to turn the urban courtyards of this Quarter into “Green Courtyards”
