Veggie Planting & Picnic 4 Degrowth

On Sunday 5.06. we gathered on one of many allotment gardens in Warsaw’s Mokotów district to plant herbs and vegetables and celebrate a day for degrowth with a potluck picnic. We tried to follow some basic permaculture principles and planted tomatoes with half a dozen companion plants as well as zucchinis. After getting the work done we proceeded to sharing food in the garden while discussing ecological matters. All together more than 30 people participated in the event.
