Das Global Bean Projekt

Das Global Bean Projekt spricht „broken English“ als gemeinsame europäische Sprache. Sie ist für die meisten Beteiligten nicht die Muttersprache. Also keine Angst! Einzelne Texte werden wir auch in andere Sprachen übersetzen, Videos untertiteln.

Visit our Global Bean knowledge hub: and discover our European network promoting the use and cultivation of legumes!

More than 50 partners across Europe, as well as in Kenya and India, share and showcase inspiring experiences and practical knowledge about legume cultivation and consumption: public gardens and seed exchanges, monthly meetings and lectures, information sheets and promotional media.
