Edible Landscape

We are coming back to you to boast another success! Our foundation was the winner of the grant programme "Active Citizens - National Fund", run by a consortium consisting of the Stefan Batory Foundation, Stocznia Foundation and the Academy of Civic Organisations Foundation, funded by the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism. 

On the 4th of January 2022, we signed a grant agreement 🙌 Work on the preparation of the project has been going on for almost a year. We assure you that in the coming months, we will flood you with handfuls of interesting information and inspiration.

We hope you will join us in the activities we have planned for the next.... 2 years! 🤗 Let's be active citizens! 💚

March 2022

The Edible Landscape Project (#EdibleLandscape) is in full swing! We have launched an information campaign and are promoting the project through various channels. In March, a series of meetings were held with residents of the Gietrzwałd municipality.

On the 2nd of March, we visited the Senior Citizens' Club in Sząbruk. We showed some of the educational boards, talked about the project and gave a lecture on ecological gardening. We also arranged a visit to the Forest Educational Glade "Permaculture Station" to prepare seedlings together, which we will then plant in the gardens we are establishing! 💚

On the 30th of March, we visited the "Pod Lipą" Club in Unieszewo, where together with the mayor of Unieszewo and the newly formed Rural Housewives' Circle, we talked about the projects we intend to carry out in this beautiful village 😍

The March awareness campaign of the Edible landscape project continued in Łajsy and Unieszewo. 

March 17th in Łajzy: we participated in the Gietrzwałd Active Meetings. The meeting was attended by entities and people involved in communal social activities - including representatives of NGOs, Village Councils, schools, community centres, cultural institutions, and representatives of the local government. The project was pleasantly received, and ideas for further garden locations emerged!

On March 27, we attended a meeting of the Unieszewo Winter Swimming Group, which uses Barwiny beach - the one we intend to develop together. We presented the design concept, set a deadline for the garden and completed the list of plants dreamed up by the users of this beach. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Unieszewo Association of Very Active People "Tuba".

We completed the March awareness campaign in the city of Olsztyn. Although the project is carried out in the suburbs, we also want to involve the inhabitants of the surrounding towns and villages. On March 30, we visited the Building School Complex in Olsztyn.

We presented the main objectives of the project, educational charts and books related to edible plants to landscape architecture students. We took the opportunity to evaluate the works of students participating in the Spring Florist Competition. Thank you for your warm welcome to the school and your willingness to get involved in the project! 😍

April 2022

On 26 April 2022, we paid a visit to the School and Kindergarten Complex in Biesal, where we will soon build another school garden with this wonderful team as part of the Edible landscape project. We are already looking forward to implementation and working together! 

We will set up the garden this coming Monday (May 16, 2022) from 8:00 AM. We invite all residents to join this initiative! 🙏 Let's help the students create a place designed for gardening education and integration. Join us! 💚
