Together we will explore the question of how I can eat healthily so that the earth also remains healthy. Because healthy food can only grow on a healthy earth. There are numerous possibilities for each individual to promote sustainable health for the earth as well as for oneself. In this workshop we want to explore these possibilities in detail. We will do this, of course, in the kitchen, the place where it all comes together, while preparing a delicious plant-based meal. Afterwards we will eat together.
