Discover the world of rare varieties and breeds, get inspired for your own garden!
From mid-June to mid-September, you can regularly discover the many ProSpecieRara varieties in the farm garden of the Merian Gardens on a one-hour guided tour on Sunday. These are grown here to compare them with each other, to harvest seeds from them, and of course to inspire visitors for their own gardens.
Depending on the month, the garden appears in a completely different guise, so that a visit is also worthwhile several times.
A short detour to the berry collection right next door and to the Swiss chickens, the Appenzell bearded chickens, the fehkan rabbits and - if they are not on another pasture - to the Graubünden Oberland sheep give an insight into different areas of ProSpecieRara's activities. All these breeds live in Unter Brüglingen and are lovingly cared for by the farmer's wife of the Merian Gardens.
The tour can be ideally combined with the guided tour of other areas of the Merian Gardens, which starts at 2 pm in Vorder Brüglingen.
Other tours will take place on 6/26, 7/3, 7/10, 7/17, 8/14, 8/28, 9/11, and 9/25.
