Podcast: Greece - Filitsa's balcony

Filitsa Korba's love of growing started with fruit trees on her balcony in Athens, Greece. Soon she was also growing many different veg and herbs at home - and inspiring others to grow.

In this podcast, Filitsa shares why she loves growing and how it can help cultivate qualities like patience, co-operation and respect for the earth. And how she is discovering the joys of cooperating and growing with others in projects in Athens and in Luxembourg. (The Luxembourg project has this FB group).
