Erwin Shares a Gem in Italy

By Erwin Meier-Honegger

Imagine a museum at a Garden Centre. Think about displays showcasing the history of horticulture in a beautiful old glasshouse in the calm rear of a busy nursery. A fairy tale? No, someone was able to make her dream become true! Our visionary IGCA board member Martina Schullian has implemented her dream of a living museum in her Garden Centre in the northern part of Italy in beautiful Bolzano. But she is too modest to present her project to us. So I would like to invite you to admire her stunning concept:


Thank you Martina for continuing to amaze us!

Best regards from Switzerland.
