After a short cooling and short-term rains, nature began blossoming with new colors. Everything around is blooming and smelling great. This opportunity should simply be used to instill in young people a love for nature and get new knowledge about it. Another workshop for children and adults took place in Berehovo (Zakarpattia region) on creating spring arrangements of fresh flowers.
The organizers used natural material that corresponds to the phenophase. It was collected in the woods and in backyards. This time a new floral material was prepared for the participants of the workshop: pale white flowers of star-of-Bethlehem (Ornithogalum) and somewhat similar flowers of wild garlic (bear leek); flowering twigs of mock-orange; tamarisk shoots, etc.
During the event, an experienced biologist, and expert of the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies Leonid Pokrytyuk acquainted the audience with the botanical features of plants. Natalia Maslakova individually evaluated all flower arrangements and shared secrets on how to keep the bunch fresh and blooming longer. There was also talk of protecting the plant world. Under no circumstances should rare wild plants be uprooted, but only the typical ones, which are plentiful.
The event was held in cooperation with the Institute of Ecological and Religious Studies- IERS (headed by Alexander Bokotey) and the German Nature Conservation Union (#NABU), project coordinator Ivan Tymofeiev.
