Now there is a platform to connect you with grannies and gramps who know more than you do about other things too. London’s Sidekick Studios launched The Amazings, a marketplace for retired people to sell their skills. Those include Foraging for a Wild Food Event with Terry, French Cooking or Bread-Making with JP and Champagne & Fine Wine Tasting with Maria.What would you like to learn from an amazing elder?

    Hi Carola — thanks for that titbit – it ‘s something johan & I subscribe to as well … actually a care centre in Friesland has asked us to adopt / adapt Lifelab to serve the needs of people in their old age homes & those affiliated receiving home care … the idea of utilising old people as lifecoaches is a great one — and by highlighting what someone who is now old, grey & infirm USED to be is an excellent way to remind their young caretakers that there is more to them than meets the eye/.
