Grow - Field Days

Food4Sutainability, BGI and EIT Food's Grow program are launching Grow Field Days.

In three field trips, we'll address issues related to soil and plant health, with a practical view of the problems and solutions for more sustainable agriculture.


There will be three farmer-to-farmer events!

All sessions start at 9.30am and end at 12.30pm, at the meetingpoint.

At the end of each visit, you can join us for lunch, upon registration and payment of 10€.
