Review of activities of the Week of Cultivated Biodiversity

Today is the end of Cultivated Biodiversity Week, where we have done a lot of activities!

On Friday the 15th we celebrated the day for teachers "Introducing agrobiodiversity in schools by sharing experiences". We carried it out at the cultural center of Can Dulce, where we will also claim the rural women's day, sharing the experience of different teachers who put the seed in different educational centers in Mallorca.

On Saturday we visited the public farm in Menut, where we could see the seed bank of forest species from the Balearic Islands, the nursery, the xyloteca... Many thanks to Carles and Toni for the visit!

To end the weekend, on Sunday we went to the archaeological museum site of Son Fornés doing workshops for the little ones together with the museum. In addition to a visit and workshop to the talaiots, they prepared the Son Fornés vegetable garden, planting broad beans, garlic, watercress... They also planted lettuce, which they took to take care of at home, and learned which foods they correspond with each station.

During the whole week we also carried out the activities "Introduction of local varieties to school gardens" in different educational centers, where they had a great time! We were able to go/will go to the partner centers CEIP Robines de Binissalem, CEIP Es Molinar, CEIP Escola Nova de Porreres, CEIP Nadal Campaner Arrom de Costitx, CEIP Ses Marjades de Sóller, CEIP Sant Jordi, IES Santanyí and IES Binissalem.

The day for teachers and workshops in educational centers are activities included in the project "Environmental education about Mallorca's cultivated biodiversity", subsidized by the aid of environmental education activities of the Ministry of Environment and Territory.
