Ca na Caragol school discovers the Barceló Foundation

2015.03.31 //

41 children in fifth grade from this school of Artà (Mallorca) visit the rural property called Son Barceló that the Foundation has in Felanitx, performing several educational workshops.

A few months ago Maria Ramis, school teacher, requested to take one of the tours offered by the Barceló Foundation to bring its work closer to the youngest.

So, yesterday a group of 45 children between 10 and 11 years visited Son Barceló. Upon arrival at the property, all of them received a brief explanation of who are the founders and what are the origins of the majorcan organization.

Then began the first workshop of agriculture. Under the instructions of peasant Toni Canyelles, children learned to till the soil, remove weeds and select the most fertile ground to plant their seeds. Once the most suitable place was selected, all planted vegetable seeds or tubers brought from their homes: melon, pumpkin and others. The aim was to raise awareness among the smaller on protecting the environment and on food donation.

Then, teachers and children enjoyed a typical majorcan snack of bread with a spicy sausage, made in the slaughter of Son Barceló.

Finally, students conducted a creative painting workshop. Under the orders of our art responsible Pilar Pujol, children let their imagination fly and made 4 fantastic watercolor murals, to hang on our Felanitx’s Art and Culture Center very soon.

This visit is included within the scope of the Foundation to advertise its activities on the island and summarized in two main areas: agriculture & environment and art & culture.
