Paros Seed Festival: almost there

Paros Seed Festival

When: 28-31 OCTOBER, 9.30 am
Where: Environmental & Cultural Park of Paros

  • Preparing wild mastic tree seeds

  • We realise with great contentment that there is a lot of interest for the Paros Seed Festival. We are happy to announce that we expect to welcome visitors from the nearby islands, Syros, Antiparos, Naxos as well as from Athens, and, of course from all corners of Paros.

    The first two days of the event we will focus on the improvement in a fruit orchard and on creating a vegetable garden with the natural farming method and the next two days we will focus on the revegetation of land in the Environmental & Cultural Park of Paros. All together we will produce the seed-clay-balls to be used in the seedings, in workshops in Tao’s Center the first three days, using three different techniques.

Throughout the festival and depending on the participation and the special interest of the audience, there will be introductory and specialized talks and presentations on how Natural Farming is applied in vinyards, olive groves, farmed but also fallow land.
The program of the festival may be modified depending on the weather conditions.

It sincerely moves and encourages us that so many people and businesses have volunteered to help and have sponsored the event. Besides the three organizers, Tao’s Center and the  Environmental & Cultural Park of Paros, the Natural Farming Center, we want to thank Blue Star Ferries, Yannis Daveronas Earthworks, Geoponikon Seeds & Plants Shop, the Paros Life & Naxos Life magazine, the Paros Innovation Group Innovaros, Parosweb and Wired Café, the Local Committee of the Hellenic Society for the Protection of the Environment and the Cultural Heritage, the High School of Prodromos, and last but not at all least, all the people who have been interested and helpful in many ways all this time and are working on making this event truly successful and beneficial for our island.

In Tao’s Center we are working in earnest for our meeting on the 28th of October. Please send us an email or call us at 22840-28882 to let us know of your participation in order to facilitate the organisation of the event or for more information about accommodation and transport, if you are coming from afar.

See you soon.
