Prema bar Torre del Mar: Prema in Sanscrit means “LOVE”, the same we feel towards Life. Our project started with an inspiring phrase coined by the poet Wendell Berry: “eating is an agricultural act” and which is why we have created our own organic vegetable garden. Our food is made with love. We believe in the importance of fresh, healthy and local products, so have chosen to sell articles from la Axarquia (the region of Malaga) that are situated on display, demonstrating a model of local consumption which could radically influence the world’s development.
This journey of love continues with the events we organise, such as exhibitions of painting and photography, live music, storytelling, film or documentary screenings, talks about the environment with specific activities such as cleaning local beaches, etc..
Conscious that the children are the future, we have dedicated a cozy playground zone. You are welcome at PREMA, and by supporting our project, together we will sow the seeds of Love.
