Gardens

With over 8000 square meters of land devoted to planting, the gardens at Casa Caponetti are overflowing with vegetables throughout the year.


Through a crop rotation system, seasonal plants are grown alongside each other to maximize the health of the harvest and minimize the harm done to the soil.  We use heritage and heirloom seeds from around the world to create a seed catalogue that grows with each year in order to build a robust archive of diverse crops.

 

Our planting seasons are divided into rough categories based on the dominant plants in the garden:

 

Month(s)Plants
MarchCauliflower and Broccoli
April and MayArtichokes, Peas, Onions
June and JulyTomatoes, Zucchini
 August and September Peppers, Eggplant
 October Winter Squash
 November Olive Oil

 

Guests are invited to walk through the gardens during their stay, and to enjoy a meal in La Cucina where the menus rotate with the harvest. We also welcome volunteers and interns throughout the year to assist in the maintenance of the gardens while learning about the benefits of sustainable agriculture.
