Growing thoughts – and sustainable foods


© 2020, Mikala Mul

Mikala Mul studied Literature at university before she traveled the world, dressed for a more physical way of life and started vocational school. Today she’s a gardening trainee at one of Copenhagen’s most successful urban gardening projects: Bygaard.

“I guess I’m feeling the pressure more than ever right now. The need to do something. To work for a better environment, to find feasible solutions within the food industry and the ability to farm in a more sustainable way. I want to help us all eat and produce better and greener,” says 27-year-old Mikala Mul, who started her traineeship as a gardener with the small Copenhagen-based urban farming project, Bygaard, a month ago.
