Our vision is to build a dynamic productional and functional area focused on various shared public service and leisure activities such as community garden, full generation cycle education, scientific research which enhances people’s lives with basic premises of Circularity, Sustainability, and Wellbeing.

The aim is not only to produce high-quality food but to educate and connect people of all ages to create a completely new perspective of the world in terms of sustainable thinking. With harmonious symbiosis between human and nature we want to promote a healthy lifestyle, which appreciates minimum waste and maximum joy.
