The main event of the first week was a 3-day workshop with the second founder of the program, also founder of The Natural Step, winner of the Blue Planet Prize, the ‘Nobel prize’ for ecological sustainability and… and... and… - Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt.

We got to the farm…and the first feeling was… so friendly and relaxed…even the cat looked like it was meditating for hours:-)))
After the most amazing home made vegan cake and an inspiring welcome speech from the owner, we were separated in few groups. It was time for some work. The choice was between different types of garden work and cooking. After the vegan cake I thought it is a good opportunity to learn something from the cook:-)
