On February 24, 10 bags of organic compost were delivered to the Municipal Nursery “El Mayayo” of the Municipality of Murcia. The compost will be applied as part of the demonstration activities of the Project in order to prove the environmental benefits and different possibilities of using the LIFE SAMIENTO substrate. The compost delivery has been made through the Agroforestry Experimentation Section of the University of Murcia with which the project has been developing activities since 2019.
The municipal nursery fulfills its function as an educational garden for social inclusion, in which since 2010 training in Eco-agriculture or ecological gardening has been offered. In turn, at the end of 2019, the municipality created job exchange for the hiring of Gardeners for people with disabilities.
The plant nursery management is carried out in collaboration with the Association for the Integration of People with Intellectual Disabilities (CEOM). In addition to people with disabilities, volunteers from the Social Insertion Center who work for the benefit of the community usually participate in nursery tasks.
