Last Friday 12th of April we at the school talked about trees as part of the PATT training day. Mr Josep Selga explained the characteristics that trees must have and, more to the point, how to grow a good, healthy tree. We talked at length about the production process of trees in a nursery and how to care for them properly. Mr Selga also spoke about the transportation of a tree, which is a vital stage in its life if quality is to be ensured. Lastly, there was a turn of questions which saw a lively and improvised round-table discussion occur.
Since 2011 EFA Quintanes has taken part in the Catalan government's annual plan of Technological Transference, organising technical training days aimed at professionals in the gardening, agriculture, livestock and forestry sector. In the photo you can see the well-known tree specialist Josep Selga in one of the conferences at Quintanes.
Study visit by the Guillem de Montrodon school in Vic. It was made so that its youngest students could discover the colours of the forests which make up part of Quintanes's land.
The students from Sagrats Cors school in Sant Hipolit de Voltregà visit Quintanes and build feeding sites for birds. Before the building starts, they do a nature trail through the forest observing the surroundings and listening to the sounds of nature.
