Farmhopping welcomes Urbangrains

28/11/2014

As the cold weather starts to creep into London, the farmhopping team are reminiscing about our long gone summer holidays. While we clasp our morning lattes (extra foam for Rossi), memories of perfect beach hair and salty skin are becoming foggy faster than the tube’s windows that carry us to and from the office everyday. However, our ray of hope has arrived in the perfect forms of silky smooth olive oils, tangy relishes and fluffy feta. Please welcome to the farmhopping family–…

On Diversity

03/08/2014

Diversity is a very favorite word for our generation, unlike for the generations of the past. They were amazed by standardization and by one-size fits all principles.

08/04/2014

Edge Soft is a web and mobile studio founded in 2007.   They are located on the 8th floor in a big business building close to the Joliot Curie metro station. The first time I stepped into the office I was touched by the wonderful atmosphere that you were instantly drawn into. The sunlight coming from the big window from which you could see the city and the design of the office itself  - so clean, bright and inspiring were in perfect unison. In addition to that you could sense the high…

Hey, guys, happy Wednesday.

GREEN BABY*

19/06/2013

When speaking about the future we often tend to forget a very simple fact. Tomorrow starts today and depends on – do not trust those self-help books, they tell you otherwise, but trust me, it`s just to make you buy them - what you did yesterday. In that context if you have a baby and care about not only his or her future, but also about the Planet`s, waste no time and start green-raising it. Research has proved the great importance of speaking to your little one, because babies do understand and…

Why Should We Join the Earth Hour?

22/03/2013

This question is, of course, a bit rhetorical. The idea of the Earth Hour is to actually act “beyond the hour”. The ecological awareness must be a constant alert in our lives, an every-day attitude, and a code by which we live and teach our children. The initiative to turn off the lights of households and businesses for one hour began in Sydney in 2007 when 2.2 million residents took part. Soon it was taken up by more and more major cities across the globe, with a constantly increasing number of…
