Smala is a circular from-field-to-plate project in Brussels. Their mission, since 2019, has been to raise awareness among Brussels residents about a more sustainable food system and to reconnect them to the earth. On this field in Anderlecht, market gardeners Marie and Zofia grow delicious vegetables according to the principles of peasant agriculture and agroecology.
