New round of gardening course promotes working the land to lil' gardeners

The Formentera Office of the Primary Sector reports that next Monday 25 October is the first day of open enrolment for a Saturday morning gardening course for 4 to 12 year olds. Registration can be done at the Citizen's Information Office (OAC) and online on the OVAC. Classes start Saturday 13 November and end on 16 June.

After the pandemic forced cancellation of last year's course, Primary Sector Councillor Josep MarĂ­ expressed his satisfaction in seeing the course return in 2021. He encouraged children to sign up for the activity, which he said was about "promoting knowledge of how to cultivate the land in traditional and environmentally-friendly ways", and teaching participants "respect for peers and the natural world".

The hort infantil is located next to Sa Tanca Vella chapel in Sant Francesc. Two groups will be formed based on age, with the first group (4 to 7 year olds) meeting Saturdays between 10.00am and 11.45am, and the second group (8 to 12 year olds) meeting from 12.15pm to 2.00pm the same day. The course is free of charge.
