FEST/N: VISIT TO THE GARDEN OF BOMBAS GENS AND CITRUS FRUIT TASTING

Fundación Per Amor a l’Art and Lluch Wine & Gastronomy are responsible for bringing gastronomic culture to all audiences in a unique setting: The Bombas Gens Garden.

In this activity you will enjoy a guided visit to the Bombas Gens Garden by the hand of its landscape designer Gustavo Marina, which will end with a citrus tasting, with a brief explanation of its cultivation in the Valencian Community and its seasonality, as well as a sensory aromatic game.

Sessions: February 4 and 11 at 12pm.
