What you'll do

We meet in my terrace-café and we talk about gardening as an opportunity for plant conservation in the tropics. I offer people a snack and from there we depart to visit the Finca Las Orquideas (approximately 30 minutes from the city) where people get to know a private initiative from a local young gardener who has an amazing collection of native orchids. We spend two hours in the place admiring the spectacular orchids and come back to the city. The experience last 4 hours.

Yelitza

I am a Botanist and I have worked in research in vegetation of paramos and montane forests in Venezuela. I am very enthusiastic about gardening and how to propagate native vegetation for conservation. I taught botany to graduates and undergraduates at the Universidad de Los Andes, Mérida for 22 years and I was the Executive Director of Mérida Botanical Garden. I moved to Colombia almost four years ago and I have been exploring places with amazing vegetation and people. I enjoy sharing my knowledge about plant biodiversity, botany and gardening! Thus, I offer courses and field trips.

Where you'll be

We visit a small garden where I teach gardening and botany, it is a cozy little place where I keep plants and books. From there we depart and drive for 30 minutes to a small farm located at 2300 m. The farm belong to Abelardo´s parents and there is greenhouse with his impressive collection. The greenhouse is settled in a slope and as a rudimentary path that we will walk.
