Thursday 22nd of March, we participated in Opbyg Samfundets program as part of CPH:DOX. We screened the short movie on our learning garden in the
Bekaa Valley and had a really interesting talk with director Jeppe Hansen from Opbyg Samfundet on creating social change far from home. The discussion was joined also by Jette Mitchewa, project manager on a rehabilitation program in a prison in Niger. We talked about our approach to working with vulnerable children and youth and local permaculture experts in Lebanon, and discussed sustainability, local engagement and co-creation. We are grateful for this opportunity to share our experiences and to have an important and exciting dialogue on responsibility and participation when working far away from home.



To make the gardens alive, we need your support. Gardening doesn’t cost a lot – which is why your donation, big or small, can be a turning point for the establishment of more learning gardens. Any kind donation makes a huge difference for our ability to let more gardens come alive in Lebanon. We are a small organization, running 100% non-profit and by volunteering efforts only. Donations will go directly to the projects.
