SCHOOL PROGRAMMEs

Enabling students to relate their theoretical lessons to actual creation of a sustainable organic food garden. 

A child’s experience in the natural world can be as small as helping to plant a garden, sitting under a tree, or listening for the sound of a bird. However, such a connection with nature has been slipping away from many of us – and especially so from urban children. 

 

Today, much of their time is spent in human-made, media- heavy surroundings, eliminating the outdoors and benefits of nature, and also being disconnected from the food they eat. How can we raise children who care about their planet if they do not first have an opportunity to appreciate and investigate it?

Our programmes will enable students to relate their theoretical lessons to actual creation of a sustainable organic food garden. It focuses on the usefulness of organic waste in the ecosystem, and how they can be used to build ‘living soil’ to grow a ‘Kitchen Garden’ through natural methods. The program will allow for exploration and meaning-making experiences, as both intentional learning and spontaneous activities build awareness and develop observational skills in children.
