MARCH – 17, 18, 19 – 2023

This is going to be a special weekend. Would you like to create your seasonal vegetable garden and don’t know where to start? Let’s learn how to plant and grow your vegetables to get your own private garden on your balcony. If you like flowers, we’ll teach you how to grow them and know how to take care of them, without dying… 

All this will happen in a space surrounded by nature and where you’ll also have two meditation and yoga classes under cork oaks, with a view of Monsaraz. We will also take a walk through the area and explore the local flora and at the end of the day we will have a wine tasting, to discover the best of the region. With a journaling class, this will be an ideal weekend to stop, reflect and practice activities that will help restore your well-being.
