From 11 to 12 April @ Picos de Europa Parlez-vous Saint-Gillois ?Maybe they know everythingThe city counts less trees than humans. Maybe that is the reason why inhabitants cultivate such strong relationships with the trees that are there. During this walk storyteller and nature guide An Mertens invites you to meet some remarkable trees in the neighbourhood Bosnia in St-Gilles. You will learn who they are, what rights and duties they have, and also, what stories they've witnessed.

Departure: Saturday and Sunday at 14h (...)

In the course of February, the parts will slowly morph into a machine. OpenKnit is a collaborative effort, some open hardware, snippets of free/libre code here and there and an (...)
