Through a joined activity, with the help of the school and the village community, we aim to create a school garden. Students will be motivated to learn about various plants and herbs and their uses. Focus will be placed on the importance of sustainable development, cooperation, responsibility and an overall love and respect towards nature in order to form eco-conscious pupils.
We are going to enclose and cultivate an unexploited piece of land at the yard behind the school. At the beginning of the project the help of the village community will be essential. The pupils will seed and adopt this piece of land throughout the year. In the school garden we will plant ornamental flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Later, when the shoots grow, we will organize a day of healthy diet and focus on the importance of vegetables and fruits. This event will be open to the all the residents of the village and the local authorities.
