The cultivation of olive trees, vines and summer gardens is done by using ecological traditional techniques and is based on the use of minerals (such as zeolite, copper, calcium and sulfur) and hand-made antiparasitics (such as propolis, soap and alcohol). Our sensitivity to maintaining local biodiversity has led us to plant local varieties of vines and to experiment with the maintenance of traditional seeds for our vegetables. You are welcome to explore the visitable gardens, take a close look at the plants, smell and taste their fruits. Discover the vegetables with the help of the sighs and fill up your home basket.
We here in Petrina continue to be inspired by the particular morphological characteristics of the area that are the ones that allow the occupation with tourism and at the same time with agriculture and fishing. In the autumn, the picking of the olives and in spring time the pruning of the olive trees, the cultivation of the vines throughout the summer and the harvest in September, the pressing of the grapes by the new members of the family and the first must, the preparation of paragadi (traditional fishing) and its gathering in the dawn are only a few of the activities that visitors have the opportunity to observe and that inevitably determine our daily contact with what is called the local ecosystem.
