The Helix Garden goes green on World Environment Day
The Helix Garden has been looking much greener and more flowery since last Friday 3 June when, taking advantage of the celebration of World Environment Day, 85 plants of 10 different species were planted, all of them adapted to the Mediterranean climate, with low water demand and with sustainability and aesthetic criteria in mind. The garden now sparkles with bougainvillea, mosquito-repellent citronella, Virginia creeper and star jasmine, among other plants and creepers.
This is a joint initiative between the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) Sustainability Committee and the Barcelona Science Park. The event was attended by many IBEC researchers, who enjoyed a healthy breakfast and a talk on the environment by a Park technician.
