About 40 young people studying or working in the areas of environment, ecology and sustainable development took part in the training session held at IDEA’s Resource Center located in the Zira Cultural Center.
The theoretical part of the two-part training session focused on guidelines for planting trees, shrubs and various flowers, grafting and pruning of trees, correct ways of watering plants in accordance with their type, as well as plant fertilization and caring process. The theoretical part of the session was concluded with a question and answer session on the topic.
During the practical part of the training, a tour of the Zira Cultural Center’s eco park and bird park was organized. Later, the young participants of the event engaged in the planting of trees and flowers as well as other gardening activities on the territory of the Zira Cultural Center.
