        Hi Sabine,


        Unfortuately this event won't be recorded as it's an informal event. You can find recordings of our webinars on our youtube channel though:

        Hello, as I probably won't be able to attend the online session this Thursday at 10 am, I wonder if there will be a replay afterwards. Thanks a lot in advance, Sabine Guenther

        We are a small neighbourhood initiative to work in urban gardens in Sant Narcís, Girona. We have the support of ICRA (Water Research Institute) and we are interested in expanding the gardens in the city, so we are interested in these meetings with other experiences.
        I am not sure if I will be able to attend the meeting, but I will do my best.
