DAS SYMPOSIUM 2021: Opening Event

1 August 2021 @ 14:30 - 19:00

On Sunday, August 1st, we will celebrate the start of our six-month program together at Michelberger Farm in the beautiful Spreewald. Together with all participants and curators of the Symposium, we’ll pop the corks, see friends again, make new contacts and thus kick off Das Symposium 2021 in due form.

There will be coffee and cake, and the team of Michelberger restaurant will fire up the grill later in the afternoon and serve fresh produce from their own regenerative field and Wilmars Gaerten. We’ll also have something to quench our thirst: Niko Brandner, who produces sparkling wine at Haus Griesel, will send us his apple sparkling wine “Von Wiesen“, with which he gives the apple more attention, appreciation and fair prices. Thanks to his generous support, we can clink our glasses together! Inbetween, the Michelberger team will give us a tour of the syntropic food forest.

You can sign up for the Opening Event until Thursday, July 29.
