Excursion to learn about plants at Binidonaire

The coast of Binidonaire is formed by the most ancient rocks of Menorca, interspersed with fossil dunes from more recent times. It is very exposed to the north winds. These are some of the characteristics that explain the diversity of plants that we find there, many of which are endemic. This Sunday, 24 October, we have organized a public excursion to learn about the flora.

It is necessary to register here. The meeting point at 9 am will be at the car park of the Mercadal Windmill. From there we will go in cars to the point from which we will start to walk. It is expected to finish at 13.30. The walk is of medium difficulty, mostly because there are some stony sections and steep slopes.

Saturday, workshop on how to make compost at Es Viver

This Saturday, 16 October at 10 am, we have organised a workshop on how to make compost in the garden at GOB’s Es Viver. To attend, please could you register here . Kitchen waste or the cuttings from the kitchen and house gardens rather than being wasted are a useful resource and good for improving the fertility of the earth if they are well composted using the right techniques. This Saturday there is an opportunity to learn how to do it.

Remember that the Es Viver garden centre of GOB is open from Monday to Saturday from 10.00 to 13.30. Now is a good time to seed the kitchen garden for the winter. You will find many ecological seedlings of local varieties and other plants.
