“Permakultura Skolity” – permaculture in Świątki
Do you know what the word permaculture means? The simplest definition is to be inspired by nature and to respect the principles that have long existed in it. Permaculture is becoming increasingly popular because it shows that harmony between human activity and the environment can be achieved. The first such large permaculture garden in Warmia was created in Skolity, where the hosts emphasize the importance of taking care of the Earth, taking care of people and sharing what they cultivate. And they grow organic vegetables, flowers and herbs.
Their aim is to create the Warmian Organic Food Centre, which they are working on persistently. Apart from fresh and healthy vegetables, Kamila and Robert, owners of Permakultura Skolity, share their knowledge during workshops to build and design stationary and mobile permaculture gardens.
