Due to the uncertain weather the workshops will not be held this week, we look forward to seeing you next week (Saturday 28 October).

Saturday October 28th, we are pleased to invite you to the outdoor Autunm activities of the Hortus Urbis, the edible garden in the Appia Antica Park with solely ancient Roman plants.

From 15.30 – “PERSONAGGI IN CERCA DI ORTAGGI” – Workshop for small gardeners by Hortus Urbis.

Every child will be able to create fantastic characters, monsters, angels, tutelary deities and scarecrows who according to them live and wander around the garden protecting the plants and seeds. Children will use recycled materials to be transformed into imaginative pots for their chosen beautiful plants to bring home.
