From 10th to 14th April at Martino.bio’s pomegranate grove in Monteroni di Lecce (Italy), 20,000 insects will be released, including the beautiful ladybugs, in order to contrast aphids’ attacks against pomegranate trees.
The release will be achieved with the support of the agronomist Simone Donno, the nurseryman Adam Cairo and the head of the field Daniele De Pascalis who will illustrate the different characteristics of the insects.
The enthusiastic supporter of the initiative is Salento Faber, a non-profit cultural association, which has been operating in the local area since 2012 in the organization of events and opportunities for promotion and awareness on current issues with particular attention to the environment and children.
Various conferences, workshops and courses. Summer camps for children and young people but also trekking experiences in the territory of Salento and trips to discover the people and the world around us. Collaborations with various professionals and volunteers who give value to our extraordinary and precious territory, creating experiences of sharing and friendship with seriousness and creativity. “That’s why we join Martino.bio, because their vision is fantastic!
“Culture is the grammar of beauty” – this is the motto of Salento Faber, the thought guiding the continuous and exciting creation. Culture as knowledge, as “going beyond”, deepening and peering, not only places but above all people.
Each person represents a great value for society, a great seed of this great garden that is humanity.
Let’s cultivate beauty together: we will collect wonder!
In May we will install the honeybee hives, thanks to Vincenzo Manca from Manca’s farm who will illustrate all the characteristics and benefits.
Waiting for October: guided tours for the pomegranate harvest during the red days.
All participants will receive a nice memory of the day and will taste a preview of Chiurazzi U.S. soda Lecce Edition.
They will also taste the MELAGRANELLO (pomegranate liqueur) made by Tenuta Verola in collaboration with Martino.bio.
The cost is € 5 per participant.
Children under 14 years of age are free of charge.
The release will be organized daily and will last 90 – 120 minutes.
