In February 2020 our students who participated in the projects planted medicinal herbs in one of the courtyards of the San Paolo building because of the eco-sustainable economy of the school. The herbs will be used in the dishes prepared in the cooking workshops.

The students, together with prof. Vincenzina Vitarella and Lidia Poletto, designed the garden inspired by the cloisters of the ancient medieval monasteries. The courtyard of our school reminded them a covered cloister: a corridor runs all around the garden and connect it to the kitchen.

Despite the COVID lock down and thanks to the commitment of the caretakers of the school, most of the plants survived and the garden can actually provide the kitchens with the necessary herbs.
