Szilaspogony is a small secluded village in Nógrád county. The IHBC volunteers already know this place, as we have helped to renovate the village nursery in 2016.
The mayor of the village, Tünde Varga has been a great supporter of the "Nursery Fruit Garden". "It's a long dream coming true". She has offered nearly 2000 sqm of land, and people to look after the trees - to grow much needed fruits for the nursery kids, and hopefully for the other nurseries nearby.
What is planned?
We are really grateful for Csaba Majoros - Director of prestigious park planning agency 4D Tájépítész Iroda (www.4dtaj.hu) currently working on the design, furnishing and extension of the Millenáris Park in Budapest. He personally invested his time to visit the village wwice already to set up the plans for the future garden. All on volunteering basis. The plan looks ambitious. One of a kind. We hope we can see the results of planting more than 150 different kind of fruit plants on this land. The village has already put a lot of work into preparing the area for the planting.
