Open free of charge, and for the second year in succession under the care of Istituto Alberti, it is a real 'training ground' for anybody wanting to learn about nature and its many aspects: an educational vegetable garden measuring approximately 100 m2, an aromatic herb pathway, a lavender labyrinth, 10 fruit trees that are also described in detail in simple but amusing information posts, an ecology island with re-cycling bins, 2 composting bins to create natural humus, 2 storage cabinets filled with all the equipment and tools that might be necessary for the vegetable plot and gardening, 6 notice boards explaining the various areas of the garden, a solar panel, whose operation is explained in the adventures of Modulix. To complete the atmosphere there are bird boxes for insect-eating birds and a number of bat boxes too.
The Learning Garden is open daily, including holidays, thanks to its co-operation with the Adventure Park.
Winter opening times are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and these will remain in force until the clocks go forwards on 29th March (Summer opening times 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.).
NB: Schools wishing to visit the Garden must book in advance. ENTRANCE IS FREE.
