Who is Fundacja Laka?

Laka Foundation’s (eng. Meadow Foundation) prime goal is to make the world a greener place by creating more and more flowering meadows. To do that they are sowing wild flowers on mono culture areas and municipal lawn areas.

Maciej Podyma, the founder of Laka, noticed that the municipal green areas in Poland are predominantly mono cultural lawns. Being a biologist himself, he knew that these lawns are virtually ‘green deserts’, leading to the loss of habitat for pollinators and vanishing biodiversity. Adding to the problem, pesticides used for lawn care kill not only weeds, but also bees and other insects. He decided then to work towards societal and legislative change, to change people’s perception on urban greenery and make the cities to incentivize biodiversity in the scarce green urban areas.

Converting lawns into diverse meadows increases biodiversity by 60-70% while reducing CO2 emissions 3-fold. Laka has already converted 1 mln square meters of municipal lawns into meadows and completed projects with major Polish municipalities (Warsaw, Krakow, etc). Their plan is to convert 4 mln square meters and be 100% self-reliant in seed production by 2024. Laka’s advantages include know-how in the execution of major municipal projects, strong track-record and unique offer. Municipalities like to minimize risk by working with known entities. Laka also offers special seed mixes for city purposes and its patented coating makes the seeds more durable and easier to sprout in city environment.
