On Saturday 27th May 2017, north of Rynek, in the area surrounding Pomorska street, a joint ECO-ACTION took place. The Park Services staff was joined by Fundacja Ekorozwoju and its international team of EVS volunteers from Croatia, Turkey and Ukraine as well as by volunteers from UPS and local population residing nearby. That day we all had one goal in mind: give the entire neighborhood a new and more pleasant appearance by planting long rows of small mesmerizing bushes along the street.
One of the best ways to meet a new culture is to become acquainted with its cuisine. For this purpose, we joined the traditional cooking event which was organized by Foundation of Zolty Parasol at Park Tolpy on 18.06.2017. Our Turkish and Croatian volunteers prepared their traditional meals and presented them in the park in order to introduce their culture and tasting new delights.
Turkish menu included lentil balls, potato salad, Turkish delight, saksuka (ingredients are aubergine, tomato sauce, onion, spices) and mixture of sesame oil and grape molasses (sweet) which are very typical of Turkish cuisine.
