Happy New Year to you all.

Just be kind, respect nature and start making beautiful memories!

First day of January is about making new plans and the best way to start 2017 is: just do it!

Why wait? Start looking forward to travels and new adventures for this brand new year.

For example, by joining a green city break to Marrakech.

Some months ago we have developed the Green Gardens workshop in Marrakech. A great way to get to know the city in a different way. With professional guided tours we will arrange for all the gardens we will visit during the workshop.
Besides the daily garden visits, we also want to be actively engaged with our daily green experiences.
Everyone will make a personal Green Gardens herbarium during the workshop. Collecting leaves, seeds and making drawings of the plants and leaves.
We will also organize a moroccan veggie cooking workshop.
But most of all we would like to take you on adventure and show you all the beautiful green places in and around the city.

Below you can find more information about the Green Gardens workshops in May and October 2017.


During the workshop we will visit and explore all kinds of gardens in and around Marrakech; An Arabic garden, a rose garden, botanical gardens, secret city gardens, city parks, hidden courtyards, an art garden, museum gardens and vegetable- and herb gardens.
To make the green theme complete, we will also organize a veggie cooking workshop (including vegetables & herbes shopping in de souk). All the participants will get an herbarium notebook, in which they can make daily sketches and collect green memories, such as leaves and seeds.
You will be surprised how green the Red City actually is. Urban jungle adventures with guided tours and delicious moroccan food, make this green travel-workshop unforgettable!
