Lory’s garden returns to the discovery of the beauty of that branch of Lake Como, today we are in a fantastic garden in the province of Como, along the wall of Villa D’este, the Giardino della Valle in the municipality of Cernobbio.
Few will remember that more than 30 years ago, in the municipality of Cernobbio, there was an abusive landfill, only by the willpower and determination of a town named Ida Frati, better known as Grandma Pupa, allowed the current botanical garden To be born on the ashes of that landfill in the eighties.
Today Grandma Pupa is 90 years old and still works in that garden with the dream of offering a new green space to the entire community of Cernobbio and so each month, during the month of May, free art exhibitions and concerts are organized at the Garden.
To help Grandma Pupa has created a true association with the purpose of preserving, maintaining the botanical garden and, with her facebook page, launched a fundraising campaign in crowdfunding. The Pupa’s garden initiative was created to raise funds to build an automatic irrigation system that will allow Grandma Pupa not to water each day by hand one by one, botanical garden plants risking His already precarious health.
Over the years, the Garden of the Valley has become an oasis of tranquility and reflection where to teach and appreciate the respect and beauty of nature. Since 2003, the town hall has dedicated a plant and a poem to the garden to all the children born in the previous year, all this on the occasion of the International Day of Seniors, adults, children, photographers, musicians and artists For the rights of the child.
