As part of our sustainability project at CDM, our students have maintained and cultivated an organic garden for several years.

Within the sustainability project for the last few seasons the María Teaching Centre has maintained and grown produce at our Organic Garden.

Framed within a respectful education towards our environment, and convinced on the virtues of a more rational crop, based on biological control techniques and on the use of natural fertilizers, our Organic Garden sprouts every season pampered by the student’s care.

An original project by Manolo Romero, retired Primary School Natural Science teacher, the cultivation of this small agricultural space is, without a doubt, an unbeatable way for children, and young students, to have the opportunity to get in contact with these alternative cultivation techniques.

Each season, with the natural cycles of these vegetables, since the garden doesn’t have a greenhouse, the plantations are done from fall to spring, in whichever case responding to the traditional sowing time of the cultivated species.

Tomatoes, peppers, scallions, eggplant, carrots and other species are planted, and later collected and consumed, with every guarantee in the school kitchen.

Other programs within the sustainability project are: Grow with Your Tree, the Aromatic Path, “R que R” and the New Sustainable Professions Challenge.


“Academic training is first class and the demands on work and training prepare them for a future outside the school where they will be distinguished from others. Although there are other schools where the façade is more interesting, by my own experience the important thing is the interior. “

It was not necessary: the adaptation of Gonzalo was perfect, and showed the excellent level of English of our dear school. We can’t be more thankful. “

“It was a priority for us to combine a level education with a way of educating closer to the person. We didn’t want to build a curriculum, we wanted to educate a person. I think our daughters will always be grateful to us for this decision. “
