Ritual Magical Garden
The Ritual Magical Garden is a place for making special rituals for artistic inspiration of all artists in Gorna Lipnitsa. It combines the energies of the natural elements and the muses of creativity and spiritualizes admiration and pleasure for nature and arts. The Garden is created with Naturalistic Design, using local materials: cardboard, branches, stones, compost, soil and sand. In the Garden are planted special herbs which harmonically raise the energy of the space and work as a connection with the spirits of nature and the muses of creativity at any time. The Garden also favors biodiversity and increases the ecosystem services of the place, while in the same time is aesthetic and useful creation, bearing happiness, beauty and herbal products to the people of Gorna Lipnitsa!
