Seize an unique opportunity to take on a trip to Pometet, get inspired for your own Urban Garden and get soil under your nails.

The event is for free and includes:

  • A tour of Pometet, their Urban Farming and possibly our forest garden project.
  • Possibility to get “dirt under your nails”: e.g. Design your own garden based on the Urban farming principles. Or help plant and propagate plants.
  • Provide input for specific challenges e.g. Pometet has a large barn with a large roof that can collect a lot of rainwater. How can it possibly be included in an Urban Farming context? Or how can one use a large container for other purposes?

All with expert guidance by Cecilie Bielefeldt, gardener at Pometet.
