13 September (10-12h) – Virtual Visit: Walking around in Tomaszyn

Covid-19 has prevented us to visit other places and learn about their experiences at first hand.
We won’t let Covid stand in the way of visiting each other!
While many interested people do not have the possibility to travel to Tomaszyn, this experimental session will allow you to walk around in the village with Piotr Ostaszewski (Ostoja Natury) and Edina Ocsko (Smart Rural 21 Project), learn about Ostoja Natury’s innovative & smart solutions in regenerative agriculture & get answers to your questions in real time.

This session was livestreamed on YouTube.

You can find more about Ostoja Natury’s approach here!
