Singing together in a garden choir. Integration and empowerment through playful activities.
Description of the activity
This activity is organised by the municipality of Santander. All the gardeners who have a plot in the network of ecological gardens of the town hall can join this activity. The initiative was begun in 2015 as a spontaneous activity of the gardeners themselves. Currently between 15 and 20 gardeners participate in the rehearsals and between 12 and 15 gardeners in the different performances throughout the year. The rehearsals are carried out 2 days a week on Monday afternoons in a civic centre and on Friday mornings in the environmental centre Los Viveros, it takes approximately two hours each session. In addition, there are also performances and events organised by the town hall including Christmas and Easter, concerts in public centres, residences and associations. The choir is a fundamental part of the annual harvest festival held every year between August and September where the same space is shared with all the gardeners of the municipal network of urban gardens and dishes prepared by gardeners with products from the gardens as well as workshops, tastings, etc. are offered.
