The Taste of Herbs – Biogarden and Natural Aesthetics

Practical workshop in nature

Permaculture is designed with the aim to create a sustainable living environment by imitating natural patterns, combining ecology, landscaping, organic farming, architecture, and agroforestry. Metka Maček wishes to transform her herbal estate in Dolenjska into a permacultural “centre” which would host domestic and international guests interested in permacultural cultivation and medicinal herbs. Beside her versatile gardens full of the rarest herbs and plants, Metka has also reconstructed an 1856 barn suitable for accommodation. This practical training programme for teenagers aims at introducing permaculture and various endemic and rare herbs. The intensive one-day workshop will include a presentation and tour of the herb gardens, an introduction to medicinal herbs, their cultivation and preparation, lunch in the garden, and tea-making with freshly picked plants. The aim of the workshop is to emphasize the importance of preserving our natural and cultural heritage, and promoting agriculture in harmony with nature.
