A garden of botanical, agronomical, architectural, gastronomical tastes.
Six hundreds square meters in which to have a stroll, relax, and at the same time get in touch with nature.
The garden is the final step of the waste management cycle which has been incepted in Campania Centre since January 2011. In fact, the organic waste of the 25 restaurants and bars of the shopping centre is processed and transformed in a rich and fertile compost used to nurture the vegetables in the garden. On June 2011 we got our first dispatch of compost, which we promptly used to strengthen our plants!
We chose to preserve the memory of our botanical heritage and agricultural knowledge of our ancestors selecting mostly local and traditional varieties such as: san marzano tomato, seccagno tomato, papacella napoletana, San Pasquale courgette…
The garden hosts classes held by Slow Food educators that focus on different topics such as food education, garden management, geography…
Lessons are conceived in two sections: a theoretical introduction and a longer practical activity in which children can experience directly, with their hands into the ground, colors, scents, and taste of the garden’s exquisitenesses.
Since the inception of the garden in april 2011, more than 5000 children have already visited the garden.
L’Orto in Campania welcomes children and adults, schools and families and everyone to experience its features and tastes!
