The Nectar Garden is a living and breathing centre designed to allow humans to become acquainted with bee activity in an artistic and experiential way. The role of the garden is to be both an information centre and an educational centre adapted to different ages. The garden has been designed in such a way as to support and strengthen the life forces of the place. In addition to being a garden of nectar-rich herbs, it also includes information about bees and honey, examples of unique hives, corners for observation and experimentation as well as a water system and observation sites. The design aims to promote and integrate values ​​of biodynamic agriculture, sustainable beekeeping and environmental art.
