A double event carried out in a new format that will take place at the Slow Food Straupe Earth Market.
The program includes:
- October 4 – The biological diversity of legumes: Despite the fact that legumes represent good food for soil and humans, studies in Latvia show that beans and peas are still not appreciated and not enough used in the kitchen. Therefore, this action will popularize the usage of locally, sustainably grown and traditional Latvian legumes.
- October 18 – Save bees and farmers: Latvian beekeepers have been producing high quality honey for a long time. Currently they face common problems together with other beekeepers, in the EU and worldwide. That’s why the aim of this action is to raise public awareness and show farmers’ concern and commitment towards sustainable-bee friendly agriculture.
Each problem will be addressed through the lens of our cultural heritage – literature, drama and theater, to create more interest in the topics among market participants. Both initiatives will be implemented together with the Theater museum in Latvia and a professor of the Latvian Academy of Culture.
