Learn to grow vegetables using recycled materials and the best techniques respecting nature. Cascina Cuccagna, an enclave of peasant culture in the center of Milan, hosts theChildren's workshop: six practical and fun workshops run by the association's educators Nostrale Village. One meeting a week, starting on Saturday 20 April.
Several and numerous themes are dealt with in theChildren's workshop: the world of insects, the earth and its elements, the paper garden, the guerrilla gardening (which mimics guerrilla marketing) and the ways in which to practice it, the cheese and production techniques, the colors and natural aromas that can be obtained from plants.
The sense ofChildren's workshop is that living in the city must not prevent the little ones from putting on hands in the earth or to experience waiting from seed to seedling. L'horticulture according to some it is a medicine, it is certainly an instructive practice: it teaches patience, the ability to take care of something whose success depends on one's efforts, educates to manual skills and teaches to work in a group, having fun.
