The Moscow Longevity Project invites you to attend courses dedicated to gardening and landscape design. Not only beginners, but also those who have been interested in gardening and landscaping for a long time are welcome to attend the classes. About six thousand Muscovites are already attending the courses, and more than 130 groups have been opened.

“As a rule, people who already have some experience in gardening come to the classes, but there are also beginners who are just now reaching for new knowledge. For those who work with soil and plants for the first time, we conduct training, learn all the necessary nuances – from safety techniques to the rules of processing a dacha plot. Older students try working with these or those tools on their own, and then choose what is suitable for their plots,” said Inna Zubik, Associate Professor and Candidate of Agricultural Sciences at the Department of Ornamental Horticulture and Lawn Science of the Institute of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at the K.A. Timiryazev Moscow Agricultural Academy.

The course program includes theory and practical tasks. Participants are told about the basics of horticulture, cultivation of indoor plants, principles of biology, botany, ecology, as well as the impact of the environment on plants and humans. At the practical classes you can apply your skills – under the guidance of professionals to plant and transplant indoor plants, learn the methods of cuttings, create landscape compositions.

Classes in ornamental gardening have a good effect on the psychological state, help to expand the circle of socialization and find people with similar interests.

“When participants of “Moscow Longevity” come to classes, study plants, they get inspiration, they communicate, share experience, advice with each other and become friends. In addition, the classes have a great practical significance, as we prepare thematic compositions for holidays and participants can make a gift with their own hands for each other or for their relatives”, – said Inna Zubik.

The whole family can also go to the classes. Participant Alexander Osipov, for example, attends them together with his wife. The couple has been interested in gardening and landscape design for more than five years. “The lessons are very beneficial to health, because at the practical lessons we move a lot, spend time in the fresh air and get a boost of energy, inspired by new ideas for compositions,” he said.

Enroll in the course and choose a group can be found hereand in any Moscow Longevity Center. In addition, the centers have more than 50 gardening clubs organized by Muscovites themselves. For example, Khamovniki-2 has a green workshop for those who like to take care of plants at any time of year.

Gardening as a separate area in Moscow longevity centers began to develop actively in 2021. At the same time, the club “My Sensory Garden” was established in the Moscow Longevity Center. Participant Antonina Makarova and her friends created a garden and grew a harvest: cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, sunflowers, beans, forest strawberries.

The new season in “My Sensory Garden” will start on April 25. To plant plants and improve the territory is invited to the address: Moskovskiy city, Solnechnaya Street, 1. In the fall, participants will be able to harvest.
