Celebrating beans, by sharing beans

With World Pulses Day coming up on 10 February, there is probably no better time to sign up for the INCREASE Project’s citizen science experiment, Share the Bean.

You can register your participation until 28 February. What will you do? I’ll tell you what you’ll do:

  • receive a packet with a few different bean varieties to grow in your garden, terrace or balcony
  • plant and grow these seeds following the specific instructions provided by the project
  • nurture your beans, and collect and record information about them using a handy app
  • suggest, and receive, tips and best practices, also via the app
  • harvest the seeds and offer them for exchange, and cook and taste them too if you like
  • send your assessments and recipes for inclusion in “Thousands of traditional and innovative recipes to cook beans,” to be published on the project website
