We're on a winter pause, but will be back in Spring 2023 with new event dates. Feel free to sign up for our newsletter in the meantime or join the waitlist for events.
The afternoon begins with an educational tour of the Mayda flower farm in Berlin-Pankow. The 1200sqm flower field is hidden behind an old chapel in the midst of a cemetery. You will learn about the slowflower movement - current season's flowers, sustainable growing techniques and how to harvest. Afterwards, you can move through the flower fields and harvest your own flower arrangement. Take in the beauty and calm of the field and let time stand still for a while.
Round out the event with a mix of sustainable cooking workshop and dinner party in the greenhouse. Using Benoo's vegetarian meal kits, we will prepare seasonal recipes curated by experienced chefs using locally sourced ingredients from Berlin and Brandenburg. During the preparation, our chef will give you tips on how to consume sustainably and reduce food waste and packaging waste. While eating together, you can exchange with other attendees and admire the freshly picked bouquets of flowers.
Take a Piece of the Farm Home
The price includes the harvest of about 35 flowers, which you can take home nicely packaged, as well as a vegetarian dish and a drink.
No Tools necessary
We will lend you scissors and buckets for harvesting.
Transporting your Flowers
If possible, bring a container with water so you can safely transport your flowers after harvesting. Or simply a towel that you can dampen on the farm and wrap around the stems.
