By | Broccolin in schools | No Comments

Last week the fallas were held in Valencia, the cities’ most important festivals. Broccolin was very excited to be able to participate in these celebrations because we love the fireworks, the firecrackers and the ‘monuments’ that make hundreds of satirical criticisms. In addition the city is filled with light and colour, there is a unique atmosphere, people flood the streets, there are doughnut and chocolate stalls on every corner and the days are endless.

Spring Begins

By | Tips for moms | No Comments

Today at 5pm spring began! We are very happy because we love this time of year. The good weather invites us to leave the house and enjoy life in the great outdoors. It seems to be the best time to get ourselves into sports and do a little exercise; the cold makes us so lazy.

Children and “greens”

By | Tips for moms | No Comments

The other day I went to visit some friends I had not seen for some time. Work, family and obligations and can sometimes make it so that we can’t devote as much time as we’d like to our friends.

When we were at the table I noticed that her son’s plate only had rice on it, it didn’t have a single piece of vegetable, and then I said to the child: What happened to your plate that it has so few colours? And he answered in a way that left me speechless: “I don’t like the green.”

This week the Broccolin Project has travelled to Lorca to visit the Virgen de las Huertas school.  Lorca is a city that stands out as the third most important town in the Region of Murcia, after the City of Murcia and Cartagena.  It is also one of the regions of Spain which produces and exports the most broccoli.
