March 23rd 2021 – Today is the official launch of Pollinator Park. We’ve been working on this beautiful project for the past 18 months. Our journey started pre-covid with actual in-person meetings and evolved during several lockdowns with home-schooling, remote working and mouth masks.
But we are so happy with the result and the friends we made along the way…
The climax of our year and a half engagement was an elaborate live launch show with prestigious guests including Virginijus Sinkevicius, Maja Lunde and Vincent Callebaut.
