The Event

The Global Bean Club is a joint project of more than 40 partners from 15 countries, who have a lot planned for the next two years: Show gardens (our world field is one of many), leaflets, a European seed festival (on March 2!), an online library, cooking shows and once a month a lecture about beans, lentils, peas and many other leguminous plants.

Growing them locally has enormous advantages: On domestic fields, they would be a real alternative to genetically engineered soy imports from burned down rainforests, first as the better animal feed, but better still as a healthier alternative to the meat that is “manufactured” from it in animal factories. At the same time, legumes fertilize the soil by their symbiosis with nodule bacteria and thus replace the climate killer of artificial mineral fertilizer. Pulses improve soil fertility and diversity and also promote biodiversity above ground. So why aren’t there many more legumes in Europe’s fields and in our gardens? Because they are not profitable? Because we have forgotten how to cook all their delicious varieties?
