ZEYNEP KARABACZAK

NATURAL COLORS + COSMETICS * GARDEN BUILDERS * SEVENGARDENS, GERMANY

“The best learnspace for school, girls and kids are youth-powered Gardens with a Purpose. You can set them up in a whiffy!”

City girls and plant colors? That clicks when you say “you can make your own cosmetics, for free, and with a far greater scope of colors.”

Dyeing, sensory and edible gardens – a big deal to set it up? Not when you know the essential tricks and trust yourself with muscle, hammer and drill in hand like Zeynep does. She has a knack for hands-on DIY work.

Zeynep helps you inspire youth and set up gardens with ease and fun, involves youth in planning, design and creations which also makes them active stewards and developers.

She also is an artist and (soon) holds a PhD in Oriental Studies (view the gallery below on a European Union art exchange program with ancient Trabzon, Turkey).

Kids and teens love Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, Avatar and traditional culture. Add a touch of magic, fairy tale and adventure! It adds a lot to spaces’ ambience, acceptance and appreciation. Zeynep is your perfect companion to realize them.
