The 15th Garden is a bottom-up network of urban gardens spread all through bombed cities in Syria. Apart from organic seeds, the network teaches people practical skills and raises awareness about food sovereignty.
“Defending food sovereignty – especially in times of war!
Wars are not natural disasters. They are constructed and run by humans. Those who derive benefits from wars play a driving role in their persistence. In wars, food – or rather the issues around access to food – is used as a weapon and political lever. Wars create a setting for market exploitation and to make the whole region and its people subservient.” (source: ASEED, link below)
All the money raised at the event will be dontated to 15th Garden.
We will ask a suggested donation of 5 euros at the door.
