Maybe because of our new interest in gardening or maybe because the natural green is at its most beautiful by itself. Natural and simple.

For the past six months, we have been working to transform our villa garden into a self-sustaining organic farm. A city farm where ecological cycle is in focus. Together with two experts; Sara Bäckmo and Johan Widing and Meter television so we have…
