This adventure started in 2017 with a group of around 5 young people showing up for the first meet up.
Today the group is made up of around 40 people and they meet regularly sometimes daily especially in the summer months. What they have done is that they have manage to turn an old abandoned garden in the town to a place where everyone can come and safely enjoy nature.
