We are part of nature. We invented agriculture by learning from nature.

Biomimicry took ages and uncountable generations to become an intrinsic drive of human kind. This transposition though no longer was part of nature, it was the birth of culture, the true opposite of it. Agriculture enabled us to become that what we are today:

It allowed us to develop the beauty and enchanting parts of life – creating meaning and value, ethics and activities beyond hunting and gathering, from art to music, from philosophy to science.


Agriculture opened up the way to division of labour where each and every human being was allowed to seek for his own and individual meaning of life.

The beauty of our challenge: We don’t have to invent anything. 

Utopia is no longer an ideal. It is reality’s potential to be tested, implemented and developed. 

And a pinch of criticism on modernistic progress idea is the recommended guideline of our activities. 

Keys: Confidence, Design, Energy.

The sky is the limit. COVID-19 highlights the vulnerability of our global food network and the urgency to radically increase super-local food production.
