WORKSHOPS IN THE GARDEN
– Paper and Seeds – workshop (3-5 years)- developed to get children familiar with the wonderful world of seeds. Sustainability, respect for the environment and creativity are the keywords of an outdoor activity conceived as a real paper-recycling plant, where children can make a sheet of paper full of seeds.
– Grow your future – Workshop (6-11 years)- born to discover with children will be projected towards the new frontiers of hydroponic growing. Building a hydroponic mini system is fun and educational, for its waste-reducing property in terms of water and nutrients and its mild impact on the environment.
The day was a great success!
