So you don’t need to make the same mistakes. Instead, you can hit the ground running!

Developed so you can hit the ground running, without spending tens of thousands of euros on research and mistakes.

On day 4 we further support you 1 on 1 on your specific urban farming project. You decide when and on which topics or hurdles.
