Are you passionate about sustainable food, gardening, healthy eating or zero-waste lifestyle?
If yes, we are happy to invite you to the “Les samedis à la Cité Maraîchère” (Saturdays at Cité Maraîchère) every Saturday until Christmas.
Saturdays at Cité Maraîchère is an informative and entertaining initiative organised by the FoodE pilot project Cité Maraîchère in Romainville, France.
The Cité Maraîchère, France’s first vertical farm, provides low-income residents with fresh and healthy food. The vertical farm grows various chemical-free vegetables and fruits, including mushrooms and edible flowers. The Cité Maraîchère was designed to promote urban agriculture, social inclusion, education and job creation in farming, as well as cooking and learning opportunities. The Cité Maraîchère hosts and offers many awareness and pedagogy activities for every age group on the themes of nature in the city, eco-citizenship and sustainable food.
Since October, Cité Maraîchère has entertained hundreds of visitors with do-it-yourself (DIY) workshops, movies, cooking classes and interactive workshops on a variety of topics, including how to cook simple, healthy and seasonal food, or how to produce zero-waste cleaning products at home. This is an excellent opportunity to spend Saturdays with your children while having fun and learning something new.
