  • Marta Duarte

    Native of Lisbon, Rosana is a mother, dancer, choreographer, and yoga instructor. She initiated the movement “zerowasteportugal” and within cities and her communities promotes projects related to sustainability and active civic participation. One of her passions lies in the sensorial scents of nature: Jasminum, Gardenia, Lavandula and Rosmarinum officinalis.

  • Pietro Romani
    Volunteers

    Pietro is all about dance and plants, feeling and doing. Shifting between different areas, he has developed an appreciation for work with communities. He is fascinated by the Voyager space probes and decided to become a gardener. He prefers songs that tell a story and has a thing for large-leafed tropical plants.

  • André Freire
    Communication

    With a background in architecture, he fell in love at a very young age with the warmth of Mediterranean landscapes, followed by a natural fascination with the long canopies of the Cupressus totem.

  • Carolina Matias
    Communication

    Translator and communicator, she is interested in language as a means and words as an end. She is fascinated by nictinastia and likes to observe the circadian rhythm of plants.

  • Ivo Meco
    Content

    Biology teacher, amateur botanist, writer of the garden guide, “Jardins de Lisboa: Stories of Spaces, Plants and People”. He believes we become eternal in the form of stories in the memories of the world.

  • Filipe Cardigos
    Communication Design

    He is adept at propagation and plant swap. In the vegetable world, one of the things that fascinates him the most is seeing a plant moving on its own.

  • Mariana Rosa

    She is a curious observer of the growth of plant species, particularly enchanted by those that sprout from inhospitable places. She joins the team to bridge green matter to the digital realm.
