The first mobility of FoodPassport Project took place in Radzionkow, Poland, from 26th to 29th january 2015.
The goal of this first meeting was to introduce each other for the first time, to explain every partner’s different and complementary backgrounds and work, and, of course, to precisely discuss our future work together in this exciting project.
Our first visit was the visit to Guido Mine, a colliery that was set up in 1855 south of Zabrze in the then emerging mining region of Upper Silesia. It descend to a depth of 320 metres, making it the deepest visitor mine in Europe.
The mine goes below until 320 m and it has three layers. You can reach the levels via a “Berlin” hoisting machine from 1927 (with a 560kW DC motor), which transports visitors to the levels of 170m and 320m below the ground.
On the second day of our mobility, we started working on the project and discuss the schedule and the work to be done. We also visited the school Zespół Szkół Specjalnych w Radzionkowie, main partner of the project, where we had the chance to observe the Polish teching methods in general and specifically connected to the issue of food. There, a large group of students performed in a special show for the group of the partners.
The visit to the Bread Museum was very interesting as well; we walked through a space full of old and historical machinery and objects, and we also baked our own bread!
