The stories and the picnic are provided by Elena Daniela Graură, our friend who will bring us wonderful dishes and tell us how we can reduce our impact on nature, without too much packaging, which we take with us in our backpacks when we go for walks or hikes on the hill or why not, right up on the mountain.
