On 13/09/2023, TheGreefa coordinator ZHAW and the demonstration partner – Meyer Orchideen AG organised the workshop in Switzerland. The event was organised in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Office for Energy (SI 502038-01 and SI 502013-01) which takes part in funding part of TheGreefa activities too.

The workshop started on Wednesday morning in the Meyer Orchideen AG greenhouse near Zurich. After the first presentation of Meyer, its actions and systems implemented in the greenhouse the participants took part in the greenhouse tour to see with their own eyes the work done in the project.
