Las to życie - Forest is life!
We, "Fundacja Perspektywa", are a small non-profit in North-West Poland, and we are going to plant a microforest with 4500 native trees of 36 different species in our little village Rozwarowo, in accordance with the Miyawaki method for tiny forests. Additionally, we will create a community center for events and panels about biodiversity, climate change, ecological transformation and transcultural exchange. We want to realize the microforest together with two young scientists from HNE Eberswalde who started the first German tiny forest in Brandenburg in 2020.
Tiny forests grow very fast, due to specific sustainable and ecological planting techniques and ours will be the heartpiece for a rural community center in our beautiful village, with a culture barn and a wooden
forest pavillion for meetings, events from discussion panels to concerts for people
from different sociocultural backgounds and regions, for our neighbors
and for guests from all over the world - our Treeducation Center! We received part of the necessary financing from regional EU funds but
need additional funding for soil preparation, seedlings, building
materials and accomodation for our volunteers, besides of urgent restoration and transformation of
the old barn into a useable location for our events.
Our goal is to bring change and ecological transformation to the Polish countryside.
In the past, we have already organized many different events with very little or no funding at all:
- Spring 2021: Installation of a permaculture garden under the guidance of Monika Podsiadla, with neighbors and guests from the surrounding villages and Kamien Pomorski (regional funding)
- Spring 2021: Participation in various street events in Kamien Pomorski
- Summer 2020: A Mexican weekend with painting and handicraft workshops, an art exhibition, a movie night and folkloristic dance performance with "Monarka Warszawa"
- Summer 2020: Documentary night and garden concert with Brazilian guitar duo "Guanduo"
- Winter to fall 2020: A weekly Callanetics workshop (partly online, due to Covid regulations)
- Fall 2019: A Brazilian weekend with musical live performance of the Brazilian-German band "Fuxico" on stage, dance, Brazilian food and a handicraft workshop
- Summer 2019: Yoga classes with Dorota Gorczakowska
Now we want to take our activities to the next level. The biodiversity forest will serve as example and inspiration for future projects and show the direction: Nature positivity, biodiversity, climate resilience and transcultural cooperation. The barn and the pavillion will host the events we are planning for the future. Please support us increase biodiversity and raise ecological and intercultural awareness in Poland!
