All the lovely green people

I have spent a very nice weekend on an island in Denmark called Samsø where 400 people came to part-take in a manifestation called Practic Ekology. This was the first time that the 6 Eko organizations had a meeting at the same time. I have met many many lovely green people and have learned a lot. I even got some very interesting seeds and plants for my permaculture forest garden :)

My friend Cristian Damgaard and I used this opportunity to talk about natural beekeeping in top bar hives. The organizer Trine Krebs gave us an official hour to present this alternative to conventional beekeeping. 50 people came to the presentation :)) and we will be meeting soon to start a new organization which still has no official name but I call it Biernes Venner Skandinavien (Friends of the Bees Scandinavia). One member suggested name "Swarm Denmark" which I like very much :) another mentioned "Bee Herders" and "More Buzz in the Gardens" which is also very nice. I'm so happy to see many interested in letting bees be bees rather than manipulating them for the sake of more honey.

400 people came to Samsø to stand up for a better greener world
Dragon Dreaming was just one of the many workshops during the weekend
Many inspiring talks and presentations ...
big thank you applaud at the end of this lovely meeting
Next big thing is the Nordic Permaculture Festival in Denmark :) stay tuned or even better join us :)
