Gardening: at the EIMA Green "school"
As part of the international exhibition of machinery and equipment for gardening and park maintenance, the Monza Park Agricultural School, in collaboration with FederUnacoma, carries out training for technicians and hobbyists. The courses are centred on the use of drones for maintenance and the rules and precautions for the safe use of machinery and equipment for gardening. They involve expert trainers and include the use of films and demonstrations
The EIMA Green international exhibition, held in Bologna from November 9 to 13 as part of the large EIMA exhibition of agricultural machinery, offers all kinds of technologies for gardening and park maintenance, as well as opportunities to refreshers and training for both the public of professional maintenance staff and hobbyists who are dedicated to plants and private green spaces. The Monza Park Agricultural School, in collaboration with FederUnacoma, organizes two training courses as part of EIMA Green, respectively on the topic of “Drones in agriculture and in ornamental green spaces” and “Safe use of garden machinery.” The first course, designed by the trainers of the prestigious Monza school in collaboration with Microgeo srl and Dronica srl, includes three hours of lectures (10-13) and is repeated for two days, the morning of Thursday, November 10 (Allemanda Hall, Pav. 33/34) and on Friday afternoon, 11 (Sinfonia Hall, Pav. 36). The second course, also lasting three hours, is held in the afternoon of the same days, Thursday 10 and Friday 11 (14:30 to 17:30 hours, respectively, in the Armonia Hall, Pav. 36, and in the Allemanda Hall, Pav. 33/34), and is held directly by the Monza Park Agricultural School with teachers Maurizio Ferrandina and Umberto Longhi, two of the most experienced trainers in this field. The use of drones in park maintenance is the new frontier in terms of park maintenance, especially for professionals who, through these flying machines equipped with sensors, cameras, and special software, can continuously monitor the state of the vegetation and intervene on the plants in a selective way. The course, awards a certificate of attendance upon completion, develops various aspects, including the technical functioning of the drones to those relating to their maintenance, and the regulations on the “visible” and “remote” use of drones. On the other hand, the safe use of machines is an increasingly topical issue, both for professionals and for the public of enthusiasts who must be able to use these machines without being exposed to risks. Before an audience of enthusiasts and professional maintenance staff, the trainers of the Monza Park Agricultural School give practical demonstrations to show the main types of machines and equipment, illustrating for each one the features necessary to ensure their proper operation and to avoid any possible error and risk during use. The courses are free, and participants can register through the special section accessible from the EIMA Green website.
