Heritage Gardens masterclasses

31 August 2018

On the 1st of August the garden owners met in the Berķeneles Manor (Rainis House) for the fruit tree formation masterclass in the frame of the project “Revival of old traditional fruit, vegetable and ornamental plants and their products: Heritage Gardens Tour”.
The leading researchers of the Institute of Horticulture, Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Edgars Rubauskis and Laila Ikase shared the theoretical and practical advice on the formation of various fruit trees. Participants of the masterclass had an opportunity to discover and find out lot of interesting things about apples, which served as a good example for attracting tourist. Manager of Rainis House has a lot of ideas and plans to implement! Hopefully, that everything will succeed!

The masterclass on fruit tree formation for garden owners continued on the 7th of August in the farm “Vilki” in Jelgava Region, where the leading researchers of the Institute of Horticulture, Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Edgars Rubauskis and Laila Ikase shared the theoretical and practical advice on the formation of various fruit trees, also young and old fruit trees. Part of the old trees have their own special story that makes the farm more interesting to tourists. The younger generation is also actively involved in the farm work. The hosts have made their own brand, so that the larger groups of tourists can easily see and recognize them. Lot of attention is paid to farm’s product tasting, which is also interesting for tourists.
