The Contribution of Farmers' Market to Czech Farmers
Procházková, Alena ; Fendrychová, Lenka (advisor) ; Spilková, Jana (referee)
This paper is focused on the represented contributions of farmers' markets to farmers and rural areas. The goal of this research is to find out if farmers' markets can be a thriving strategy for Czech farmers and if they represent the same contributions as the western authors introduce. The theoretical portion of this paper provides a review of the new paradigm of rural development, alternative food networks, farmers' markets and specifies the conditions of Czech agriculture. The contributions based on the literature research were used as material for interviews with farmers from three selected farmers' markets in Prague. According to the results from the interviews, it seems that the farmers' markets are partly a thriving strategy for Czech farmers despite differing conditions in agriculture. The farmers' market can be, for small Czech farmers, a way to increase their profits as well as provide them with a larger portion of the sales price. By contrast, the potential to increase employment by generating new job opportunity was not proved to be true. Only a small part of farmers needed to employ another person. Keywords: Farmers' market - Farmer - Producer - Contributions - Rural development - Prague

Ecosystem services and community gardens in Prague
Růžičková, Lucie ; Spilková, Jana (advisor) ; Frélichová, Jana (referee)
Community gardens are a new phenomenon which appeared in Prague quite recently. This thesis focuses on the topic of community gardens and its specific aim is to determine whether the Prague community gardens perform the functions of ecosystem services. The thesis consists of two main parts. The first part aims to create a theoretical framework necessary for the introduction to the study of ecosystem services and the concept of urban gardening. The second part tries to outline which ecosystem services are the most prominent in the researched community gardens and which are the least covered, thus which community gardens in this performance of ecosystem services evaluated best and which the worst. By applying the method of field research and interview it has been confirmed that cultural ecosystem services are the most prominent benefit of community gardening for local communities in Prague. Other important functions that community gardens in this survey performed were supporting and regulating ecosystem services. Equally important is also the finding that community gardens perform the function of producing healthy food for local gardeners. Key words: ekosystem secvices, urban gardering, community gardens
New residential areas in Prague and their public spaces
Vyhnánková, Markéta ; Ouředníček, Martin (advisor) ; Spilková, Jana (referee)
In the first part of my thesis I evaluate emplacement of new residential areas within Prague. I focus on residential areas constructed after 1996 and I try to find what types of buildings these new areas consist of. In the second part of this thesis I investigate presence of sojourn public spaces in the selected residential areas and I concentrate on their equipment. I am interested in visitor's opinion on appearance of public spaces in four different areas in Prague. I conclude that the count of new residential areas in outer city is very similar to the count in the peripheral parts of Prague. Sojourn public spaces are present mostly in the areas, which are created by blocks of flats. The presence of sojourn public spaces is an important factor for the inhabitants of Prague. But when it comes to choosing a new housing, they prefer other criteria such as the price of the realty or the quality of its surrounding. Powered by TCPDF (
