Every tree has a story to tell.
Origins, history, legends and use of the trees that play an important part in our traditions.
At La Valverde there are numerous species of plant: the wild wood, the trees used for timber and the fruit trees. For each one there is a story to tell. A ‘guided tour’ through the trees allows the children to recognize the characteristics of the different types of wood, listen to the history of their origins and appreciate how each tree is used in everyday life. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate a greater awareness of trees by describing their properties and the different ways they can be used. The children will learn to recognize the reproductive systems of the tree and will take home a vase with a seed that they can germinate so that it can, in turn, grow into a tree.
The workshops are organized for children in the first and second years of primary school. The best times to participate in a workshop are from 1st September to 15th November, and from 1 March to 15th June.
