History of a Garden: during the winter months of June, July and August and in early Spring, the group in charge of Maintenance of Green Spaces at Parque Avellaneda patiently gathered the results of their labor in Sala 10: palm leaves, logs, eucalyptus bark and leaves, silk from silk floss trees, cockspur coral tree flowers, cypress boughs and jacarandá leaves… The hall became gradually populated with the leftovers of winter, the garments discarded by the park’s trees during the change of season placed in storage. That is how this Winter Garden came into being.
