Young Gardeners at The Westin Resort Costa Navarino
Costa Navarino prides itself on offering nourishing meals based on fresh and organically grown produce, following authentic recipes from the region. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, the area is blessed with a mild climate and fertile soil, which has garnered praise for centuries for its high-quality agricultural produce. The unique flavor and health benefits of its renowned Kalamata extra-virgin olive oil are considered to be among the finest in the world.
Launched this year, “Young Gardeners” is a fun outdoor activity that invites children from 4 to 11 years of age to be more mindful of the food they are eating, seeing where it comes from and how it gets to their table. Kids are encouraged to connect with nature first-hand, experiencing the unique beauty and culinary possibilities of Messinia region.
Planting their own seeds and picking out seasonal fruits and vegetables, kids take a delightful journey of discovery into the “farm to table” philosophy. They immerse themselves in the culinary traditions of the local area, learning all about Messinian flora in a specially-designed vegetable garden. They get a true feel for the ground by planting their own seeds, vegetables and herbs by hand. After collecting a range of vegetables, and with the help of our Chef, children create their own delicious, nutritious and sustainably-sourced dishes.
