In summer 2014 the artist residence CASAdelDRAGON  started the first colour garden of the sevengardens.eu UNESCO certified project in Spain.

We are creating an amazing space for free people and free thinking in Spain. Like the garden of Epicurus, we invite all creatives to relax, work and enjoy in the Maestrazgo region in Castellon. The garden is part of the artist residence CASAdelDRAGON and the first Spanish university of informal education (UNIIE). The color garden has areas for working, education, events and quiet zones for relaxing. It hosts also a working area for the artists (drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, dance, theatre, music…).

In winter 2014 we started planning and we figured out first arrangements for the garden infrastructure (first cleaning, first beds).

One main part of the garden is the area to cultivate useful plants for the production of pigments and paints. We develop this colour garden as the first colour garden in permaculture and the first colour garden in Spain of the sevengardens.org network which is active worldwide. This includes the exchange of ideas and collaboration worldwide.

In combination with the artist residence we will offer special workshops (from the plant to the image, cultivation, care, paint production, use etc.).
