150 participants and volunteers from 25 countries gathered from Sept 16th -18th in Provoz Hlubina (Ostrava, CZ) for the 3rd European meeting on CSA.
The gathering took place in a former coal mine and steel works that has been reconverted into a conference and cultural centre. It provides an interesting background for non-profit activities and cultural events for those who are interested in actively changing society in a post-industrial era! Ostrava and its region is actually the area in the Czech Republic with the second highest number of CSAs.
Community-Supported Agriculture activists accepted the challenge and experienced two full days of workshops, plenaries and cheerful participatory activities (seed mandala, guerrilla gardening, FART – farming and art!)
Participants unanimously adopted the European Declaration on Community Supported Agriculture which they will all take home to their respective countries.
