March 2021: Trimestrial repport

Winter and the cold didn’t stop EKO!’s activity, quite the contrary, the best way to stay warm is to keep the hands working. As a welcoming of the spring, from “our hands that are like flowers” (from the Persian expression “دست زن گل است”), the creativity sown at EKO! is in germination during this beginning of 2021. From permaculture training in the Marseille area, to a bus transformed into a school in Lesbos, you can stop in Briançon to make “departure kits”. Our three branches reveal hidden talents that we try to highlight in this brief activity report. Enjoy the reading!
