FLOWER POWER: workshop about the creation of mixed borders
Fri 5 June, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST
As part of the Chelsea Fringe Festival satellite Bergamo, Rosanna Castrini proposes a workshop dedicated to the creation of a mixed border with perennials in the beautiful terraced garden of Palazzo Moroni, in Bergamo – ITALY. The keywords that describe and characterize this project are: promotion, collaboration, education, sharing. Enhancement of architectonic and landscape existing resources; collaboration among the various professionals involved (because it would not be possible without the cooperation and enthusiasm among guests, coordinators, designers, manufacturers, gardeners); education to beauty and composition (through the joy of manual and direct contact with the soil); sharing experiences.
This workshop is designed primarily for students of landscape&garden disciplines, and will consist of a brief theoretical introduction (history, styles and techniques of composition, natural and recreated plant communities , sustainability: the afternoon of the first day); and of the practical realization (tracings and planting: second day).
It will be possible thanks to the collaboration and the availability of:
– Lucretia Moroni, president of the Fondazione Museo di Palazzo Moroni (location)
– Vivaio Valfredda (provision of perennials required for the construction)
– Marco Arioldi (soil preparation and subsequent maintenance)
