Eco-Friendly "Love Sporoi" Festival Held in Athens

  • Written by 

The "Love Sporoi – Let's Grow Together" festival is taking place in Athens, whose goal is to raise environmental public awareness on the attributes of seeds.

It is initiated by Demeter International, while six European capitals are participating in the eco-friendly event. The Seed Festivals' goals are to enhance the message of distribution, production and free exchange of traditional and non-industrial seed types.

The Festivals' mission is to promote sustainable agriculture and reinforce biodiversity as an European policy element by 2030. The Hellenic Love Sporoi Festival is organized by Organization Earth.

Organization Earth representative Christos Zouras described the initiative, "the Festival Love Sporoi is a great event for the whole family, where you are updated on the hot topic of seeds combined with the special vine that we always have at the Center of the Earth every Sunday in recent years. Collective kitchen, toys, etc."
