FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW CAN I PROMOTE A GOW VISIT AT MY SHOP UP FRONT? DO I ARRANGE THE PUBLIC FOR A GOW VISIT MYSELF?
1WHY A GREENHOUSE ON WHEELS?
One of the best places to learn about the why, how, what and when with Biobizz® would be in a greenhouse. A very special one in this case! We thought “how can we share our knowledge in a way you will never forget?”. Yes! Let’s make a Greenhouse on Wheels. Are you a shop that sells Biobizz®? Are you a Biobizz® user? Or not yet? Or do you want to learn more about organic cultivation within/at your local community, project, school or event? GOW will bring Biobizz®-knowledge to your doorstep! We want to give the same opportunity to everyone. No matter where you are, we will try to come to you and show you how to GrOW your own ecological products. It is the best way to show others what Biobizz® has inside. We show you the most responsible and eco-friendly way to treat your vegetables and to take care of the environment. That’s the organic spirit!
2ISN'T A DIESEL CAR POLLUTING?
Yes, it is and we are aware of the CO2 that the van is generating ;). Obviously, we will compensate our carbon footprint. In every country visited by GOW, we will give back through a local green project. For every kilometre driven, money will be raised to support this project. And it can be yours! On this platform, we will launch an enrolment page (per country when GOW is present) where you can enrol your sustainable project. After every period in a country, one will be selected to receive the money raised. Can’t wait to share? Contact us!
3ARE YOU USING BIO FUEL?
Yes, we are!
4WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF TOURING AROUND WITH A GREENHOUSE?
For the upcoming 2 years, we will be driving across different countries within Europe. With no borders and limits of growing, bringing you a diversity of seminars and interactive games. 4 drivers, 730 days, uncountable roads to take on the organic highway to self-sustainability. Wherever we go, the goal is to spread knowledge and increase local ecological awareness. And everybody can join the ride! The Greenhouse is the best way to show the world what we are, what we do, and to be an example to others. And we also get to meet the people, face-to-face, wherever they are. We can share our philosophy, make people think about the environment, involve them and let them share in the experience. There is a lot to tell about the world of agriculture and food consumption. We want to show processes, explain everything about organics, natural food, how to improve nutrition and to show our kids what the best way is!
5DOES GREENHOUSE ON WHEELS MEAN YOU’RE CONTRIBUTING TO THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT? (GLOBAL WARMING)
Yes, we are contributing a little to the greenhouse effect, but we’ll try to compensate it ;). By showing people how to grow their own food (so you won’t have to buy food that has travelled a lot of kilometres before it ends up in your stomach) and how to take care of our planet (recycling, sharing, knowing what to consume etc.). Eventually, every little thing can create big changes we hope this contributes a bit to the reduction of the global warming.
6WHAT KIND OF PLANTS WILL YOU BE GROWING INSIDE THE VAN?
All kind of plants that you can consume at home. There will be many herbs, horticulture plants, some hemp plants, odoriferous, lettuces, fruits etc.
7WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE PLANTS THAT HAVE BEEN GROWN INSIDE THE VAN?
The plants that are grown inside the van can be given to grow shops, people who visit the GOW, restaurants etc. Maybe we will eat them, or even plant them again.
8CAN I SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLANTS THAT HAVE BEEN GROWN WITH BIOBIZZ® PRODUCTS AND THAT HAVEN’T BEEN GROWN WITH BIOBIZZ® PRODUCTS?
It depends on the plant, but if you cut tomatoes for example, you can smell the difference between organic and non-organic. Organic products smell and taste more intense and have a very rich flavour.
9WHY ARE YOU DRIVING THROUGH SO MANY COUNTRIES?
Our philosophy is 100% pure and simple: to be ecologically aware and make the organic cultivation of crops accessible for everyone. Biobizz® lives and breathes organic and would like you to join us in our continuously growing community of self-sustainable growing masters! So, we want to reach as many people as we can and we think this is an amazing way to show people who we are, what we think and what we want to achieve on this planet. Organic is a way of living!
10WHY DON'T YOU COME VISIT MY TOWN SO I CAN SHOW YOU MY GREENHOUSE?

Or do you want to know how to join or visit our tour in any way? Contact us to share your enthusiasm, thoughts, or questions. Please fill in the contact card!
11WHY DON'T YOU GROW WEED IN THE VAN?

Sure! Proposals are welcome and we will check the possibility depending of its characteristics.

34WHY DOES MY COUNTRY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR?
Because driving from Spain to the United Kingdom and back to Portugal isn’t very efficient. We care about nature and want to waste as little fuel as possible. The downside is that you might have to wait a little longer for us to visit you, but the upside is that it’s better for the environment.

We have 4 truckers: Ruben, Marc, Mehdi and Patrick. Want to know more about them? Check out the about page to see which trucker will visit which country is still a surprise!

There will be translators in Spain and France.

You provide at least the location, visitors and seats (and optionally food, music, exhibition, games etc. Make it as big as you want!). We arrange the van and the seminar! Of course, you won’t be totally on your own. You’ll receive a special do-it-yourself promotion package to promote the GOW locally: a route agenda, social feeds, video’s and a special project to provide sponsoring on green projects for every kilometre driven!
