From Field to Plate
In 2020, the World was surprised by the Covid-19 epidemic, which greatly changed the way we look at the world and life. In the meantime, it has been shown how important local nutritional self-sufficiency is. It was during this period that many people decided to start growing their own vegetables, fruits and food in general. With this project we want to show young people how important it is to protect rural parts of our countries; how important it is to preserve the knowledge of self sufficiency and also how youngsters from the city can also be more self-sufficient. Nowadays we are forgetting how long does it take that we get our food from the supermarket to our plates. During the project we will get to know the process of food production, we will get to know enviromental protection, we will learn how to be more self sufficient and how to produce our own food. The project will include visiting examples of good practices, like farms, estates, local zero waste shops, excursion trips, work actions with creating our own garden and attending international conference.
The goals of the activity are:
to acquaint young people with the importance of local self-sufficiency
motivate young people and encourage them to grow locally
