"Viridarium" means a "rising orchard ." We cultivate , support, teach, share knowledge, improve what we can - what refers to the garden with the people coming to work with us. We teach, sow and plant. We germinate. We write and publish. We show the healing power of plants. We invite to garden with us and harvest common crops.
We run an education garden in Warsaw. This is a center of our work. We adapted an abandoned space next to a playground in Powiśle district. It was founded by Local Initiative budget in 2014. In 2015 it was chosen as one of the best local initiatives in Warsaw and therefore it's prolonged for two more years. We invite locals to work with us in the garden at least once a week during spring/summer season. We take care of plants, water them, compost. The garden is opened for everyone all the time. Apart from gardening, we organise craft workshops for kids. The subjects always refer to horticulture. Our aim is to emphasize the educational aspect of gardening.
We organize and take part in numerous events and wokshops.
- workshops in our education garden that consist of different educative and fun activities refering to horticulture
- workshops for kids and/or adults during events
- workshops and trainings for teachers and educators refering to education gardens
