The down to earth ACADEMY FOR PERMACULTURE DESIGN works with children aged 3 to 5 from the municipal daycare centre of Locarno and takes them on a year – long journey through the seasons.

The permaculture garden of COMUNITA ACERO is open to the children during this time and teaches them about permaculture in a fun and engaging way.

Vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers are grown in raised beds at Locarno daycare centre, and a compost for permaculture garden is also set up.
