May 24-25th 2019

Multiple bootcamps took place all across Europe. Baltic Freya had the pleasure to participate in the Warsaw bootcamp. Awesome two day training by Hans Westerhof, multiple assignments, tough competition, but Baltic Freya is proud to say that the idea of Fogponics 2.0 has passed to the next phase of the competition!
