"How can vegetable production respect the sacred nature of food? How can a responsible small business flourish instead of struggle? How can we grow food so that community boundaries extend and embrace more than just each other? FÖRÄDLAD is a small CSA, growing biodynamic vegetables for fermentation in the middle of the beautiful park in Ytterjärna. The pace in the garden intentionally low-intensive, challenging ideas of what it means to run a small agricultural business. This workshop will explore alternative ways of approaching business, particularly in relation to vegetable growing/food production. Welcome to the conversation whether you have started/are considering starting something or are just interested."
