The Botanical-Orchid Park resumes its cultural activities with the celebration of the VI Estepona Orchid Fair, which will be held November 6 and 7, with the intention of being the most ambitious of all, with the participation of various exhibitors-vendors that will offer a wide range of species.
Thus, visitors will be able to enjoy and purchase both decoration and collection orchids from orchid growers (Flora del Tópico, and Pantrópica), begonias and araceae (Begonias y Más); and cacti and other succulents (Pablo Rivero Pérez). Likewise, you will be able to enjoy the works of ‘Óvalo Art’, a ceramist whose works of art do not leave anyone indifferent.
In addition to providing a great opportunity to view the Orquidario’s fantastic botanical collection and learn more about the art and culture of orchids, the Orchid Fair includes a conference on the hidden intelligence of plants, and the holding of a practical workshop on the cultivation and flowering of orchids, with the following program:
- Saturday 6, at 12:00 hours, at the Padre Manuel Cultural Center: Conference ‘The hidden intelligence of plants’, by Manuel Lucas, Curator of the Estepona Orchid Garden. Are plants smart? Do you think? Can they communicate with each other? Do you have a memory? … A pleasant and fun conference for all audiences, which will make us change the way we see a tree. Free entrance, until capacity is completed.
- Sunday 6, at 12:00 hours, at the Orquidario: Workshop ‘Tricks for the successful cultivation and flowering of orchids. Questions and answers’. Attendees will be able to bring their plants to practice with them or diagnose their condition.
Since the capacity for the workshop will be limited, it is recommended to reserve a place at the email firstname.lastname@example.org. Those interested can also call the Orquidario’s phone number: 951 51 70 74, within the hours of attention to the public (from 10:00 to 13:30 and from 15:00 to 17:00).
