Ecological Agriculture

Agricultura Ecológica

About this activity:

 

For several generations, in a small village in the Autonomous Community of Madrid, my family has managed an “Orchard” that we have recently upgraded to the Agrotourism needs and, above all, to Ecological Agriculture. In our family we consider Ecological Agriculture as a necessary model for a healthy and sustainable food development. For this reason, we invite you to visit our organic garden ”El Nogalejo”, to get acquainted at the hands of a Biologist, to what Ecological Agriculture is, how it works, what are its processes and all the different types of fruits, vegetables and aromatic plants that can be grown in an organic garden in the mountains of Madrid, so that the little ones can see first-hand, where the potatoes that they like so much come from, how tomatoes, lettuce and onions are harvested and even themselves may collect and taste some of the raspberries, blackberries or strawberries in the boundaries of our vegetable garden… We will make you authentic gardeners!

 

 Itinerary:

The activity will be held in our organic garden “El Nogalejo” experiencing the harvesting of products from the vegetable garden, the fertilisation and irrigation of the plants… What is the name of this purple plant (Red cabbage)? It seems alien! Many of the children say, not used to see it in its original form.
