Area protetta regionale Giardini Botanici Hanbury


Didactic Projects for the School Year 2022/2023

The Hanbury Botanical Gardens, in view of the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research of 1 June 2020 requesting the availability of theatres, cinemas, parks, and botanic gardens to restart educational activities, confirms last year's educational offer, adapting it - from an operational point of view - to the anti-covid19 prevention regulations.

The Hanbury Botanical Gardens are an internationally important botanical, historical and landscape centre. For some years now, they have been committed to providing schools with an increasingly qualified service.

The didactic proposals have been updated and enriched with activities introducing sustainable cultivation methods that allow soil conservation and improvement, less water consumption, reuse of plant remains, and use of renewable energy sources.

The cornerstone of the proposed activities is the garden, understood as decentralised outdoor classroom-laboratory extending over nine hectares by the sea.
The common didactic objective of the proposed activities is the acquisition of scientific knowledge through observation and direct discovery, as a conquest of the pupil who will gradually master the scientific method.
In this context, in addition to the outdoor observations, the laboratory equipped with microscopes (one of which is capable of projecting the material being observed on the screen), the nursery, the herbarium and the wood museum, and the photovoltaic greenhouse can be profitably used. In compliance with the anti-covid regulations, an inter-personal spacing of at least 1 metre should be respected in the laboratory and the capacity will be reduced to groups of 15 people, with the possibility of taking turns in the various activities.

A particularly important theme in the child's education is the approach to learning about the seasons with full 'immersion' in its transformations.
This multi-disciplinary theme opens up horizons for climatic, geographical, zoological, botanical (deciduous plants, bulbous plants, annual plants; the production of flowers, fruit, seeds, etc.), food and historical analysis.
In order to get to know these aspects and to be able to go into them in greater depth in later years, it is important for the pupil to master the basic elements of this change.
