Arboretum is marking the start of summer on Sunday 21st June with a fun day of activities at their public park behind Marbella bus station. From 10.00-17.00 there will be stalls with organic and environmentally friendly products, artisan foods, plus arts and crafts and gifts to buy. There will also be live music to create a festival atmosphere, workshops and games and activities for the kids, all set in the beautiful Urban Allotments at Arboretum.
Arboretum Marbella is the People’s Forest, creating a public park which is conserving Malaga’s native species of trees and plants, championing sustainability and offering environmental education to all. This event will raise awareness of the great work this Marbella environmental charity does, and visitors will have a chance to learn about Arboretum, with guided tours, information and fun activities.
Arboretum Marbella’s Director Alejandro César Orioli commented, “We want to celebrate the start of summer with you, which is why we have organized this special event on the 21st June. This is a community event, perfect for families, where you can get involved with a very special project and have fun in a unique environment – our Urban Edible Gardens. We want to bring everyone together to celebrate and share with artisans and local producers and support their sustainable activities. Let’s laugh, celebrate, share and enjoy together! Guests are asked to bring along a book to donate to a good cause.”
To attend the fun day is free of charge, but donations are welcome.
