    Grow your food with Permaculture

    2 workshops

    During this course we were exploring how to grow our own food in a sustainable way. We joined 2 closely related topics of food forest and a vegetable gardening into full weekend experience. You may choose to participate in both days, or just one of them.

    Soil is perceived by the majority of people as dirt, which is neither healthy nor clean to work with. Well, nothing is more wrong than that…
    During the workshop we focused on understanding what soil is – what it consists of. What is living inside it and how we can improve its quality for gardening purpose.

    Introduction to Medicinal Plants

    During the Introduction to Medicinal Plants Workshop we learnt about plants that I found most common to the region, as well as most helpful along my experience. What do they need to grow happily and when and how to harvest them; eventually what kind of products we can turn them into.
