The Carl Faust Foundation bases its work on three main pillars: the conservation of plant species, scientific research in the field of Botany and the dissemination of its plant heritage. In the field of botanical dissemination, the educational work aims to let the public know about the natural and scientific heritage of the Marimurtra Botanical Garden, specifically to visitors and students from both national and international schools.
The Marimurtra Botanical Garden presents its new catalog of visits, guided activities and educational resources for the 2021-22 academic year.
In this catalog you will find resources for all levels of education, from Primary School to College, to discover the environment, solve challenges and encourage curiosity about the plant world, science and cultural heritage of Marimurtra Botanical Garden.
The program contains guided tours of different types and specific activities for each educational stage that take place in Marimurtra. It also contains activities that can be held at the school, such as the virtual visit “Virtual Marimurtra at School” (https://bit.ly/marimurtra-virtual) and the “Travelling Activity; the secrets of the seeds ”, led by Marimurtra’s guides in the classroom.
As a novelty, we present “Marimurtra and the Sea”, an activity that aims to raise awareness of the plant world in the terrestrial and marine environment, and which consists of a guided tour of the Botanical Garden and a guided snorkeling trip in Cala Sant Francesc.
On the other hand, this year, booking educational activities at the Marimurtra Botanical Garden is easier than ever! As a novelty, you can request your reservation from the new online form apart from the usual channels (email escoles @ marimurtra.cat and telephone 972 33 08 26).

Botanical gardens, as museums and science centers, have the basic function of reaching both the general public and experts, and it is crucial that they reach students in schools. The museographic strategy includes teaching and dissemination actions, which are defined from the contents generated by botanical research, conservation and, in the case of Marimurtra, its collection of more than 4000 plant species.
