24/05/2019 - Events

There is also a bioenergetic garden in the Mente Locale center among the destinations of the 2019 edition of “Appointment in the garden“, the exhibition organized by the Parks and Gardens Association of Italy, held on the first weekend of June.

The occasion was born thanks to the collaboration and the interest of the Garden Club of Biella which is among the supporters of the center and which has already organized some activities at Villa Boffo.

Saturday 1 June there will be an extraordinary opening of the garden and a musical aperitif.

The Mente Locale garden is very special because it was created by the eco-designer Marco Nieri according to the principles of bioenergetic landscape. It is not just a corner of greenery, but every detail has been designed to create an environment that returns wellbeing and active positive feelings and emotions.

This is a charity initiative that aims to raise awareness of a very beautiful but little-known corner of the city and collect funds to support the activities of the center.

The garden will be open from 17.00 to 21.30. A presentation of the project “Bioenergetic Garden of the Local Mind Center is scheduled from 5.15pm to 6.00pm.

Until 20.30, visitors can participate in the aperitif set up between the garden and the villa, accompanied by live music.

The entrance fee for the visit to the garden is 3 euros, the cost of the aperitif is 12 euros.

It is recommended to book by calling 335.1312635.
