We pretty much know WHAT kinds of plantings that can be done out there. This conference will mainly be about HOW it can be done. Time to learn, share experiences and DO it!

The conference will be held 7-9 September 2022, at Slagthuset in Malmö, Sweden.

The pub at Slagthuset will open for the conference participants on the 7th and 8th, after the talks are finished, around 5 pm/17.00. And there will be a possibility to book an evening meal, see TICKETS.

The program below is what is planned and booked for. We do indeed hope it will stay this way. Nevertheless we have to say that the program might be adjusted prior to the conference; it can be subject to change.
