What do we want? What are our objectives?
Well, we could write a long text with a lot of theoretical stuff in.
But who reads it?---- Nobody.
Our objectives are simple.In a world where nature is in danger- and so our life is as well-, we HAVE TO teach the next generation to treat it with more respect. We have to teach them to leave the way of damaging the earth and to esteem all living creatures.
How to do it? That´s simple, too- learning by doing. So students should for example:
- be provided with understanding of environment and agriculture
- improve their environmental awarness and health- related knowledge
- discover the garden as a source of health and as a natural place
- learn about ways to avoid environmental pollution
A school garden is a powerful environmental education tool. Through gardening, students become responsible caretakers. Students have an opportunity to get engage in agricultural practices on a small scale, learning about the responsibilities and impacts of land cultivation. They explore the web of interactions among the living and non-living players that sustain life. By doing so, they develop a greater understanding of the natural world. Having a school garden means students are actively learning more about plants, including vegetables and fruit, and seeing how they develop and what conditions are needed to grow them. Establishing a connection with nature at an early age is extremely important.
Each of the 5 partners is responsible for a special topic (more about in results).
Fort wo years we will work at the topic and exchange knowledge, results and best practices. That´s why it is great that we have the chance to have a meeting in each partner country. So students can really „learning by doing“- thanks tot he support oft he EU.
