Put your feet on the ground and your mind on issues related to environmental awareness and well-being. This is the invitation for the first edition of ONLY, a festival that takes place in the urban park of Quinta da Granja next weekend, on the 16th and 17th of October, in the parish of Benfica, in Lisbon.
With the motto “planting the future”, an initiative includes a market for organic products (from 9 am to 3 pm), a “fertile fair” of ideas and projects related to sustainability (from 9 am to 6 pm) and a full program of activities.
Over the two days, three guided tours are scheduled: a three-hour route organized by the Benfica Parish Council’s Walking and Running Club, a botanical trail “in conversation with the plants” and the historic tour of Benfica Footseps.
There are also revelations of tai chi chuan and yoga and four workshops programmed on kitchen waste, sustainable cosmetics, vermicomposting in apartments and gardens at home (previous proposal required through a form); as well as activities for the younger ones, including storytelling activities and children’s shows.
The lunchtime will be animated by DJ – João Barros on Saturday and BirdzZie on Sunday (from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm) – and, in the late afternoon, a concert will close each day of the festival, with Filho da Mãe and Cais Sodré Funk Connection, Saturday and Sunday, respectively (from 5 pm to 6:30 pm).
