Froh Ussicht “gift (toxische Geschenke)”
27 until 29 October 2023 , Samstagern, Zurich
Poison in agriculture is a much discussed topic. Improving yields with less effort has probably been the main goal ever since people first started farming. So it’s not surprising that in the last century, people did not shy away from the large-scale use of poisons to get the edge over their enemies. The production of larger quantities of food has enabled exponential growth of the world population, with ever fewer people employed in agriculture. If that growth is viewed positively, agrochemicals must obviously be interpreted as a gift.

SOB (S13) from Wädenswil towards Einsiedeln. Get out at the second stop Grüenfeld. Remember: Stop on request! Head west, cross the main road and follow the dirt road. You will pass a horse stable and some allotment gardens to find Froh Ussicht on the hill ahead of you.
Unfortunately, we only have a limited number of available parking spaces.
From the A3 motorway, take the Richterswil/Samstagern exit. Turn right up the hill out of the roundabout. After 50 metres, turn right into Obere Schwandenstrasse and continue 200 metres straight ahead. When you pass the first farm, keep left and follow the road. You will see Froh Ussicht on the hill on the right. Froh Ussicht is located in a no-drive zone, our guests are permitted access via a feeder road.
