An Organic School Garden Scenario of Activities
Original hosted in "ODS", contributed by Nektarios Tsagliotis on 30/03/2014
Πρόκειται για ένα σενάριο ανάπτυξης σχολικού κήπου, για πρωτοβάθμια και δευτεροβάθμια εκπαίδευση, με 15 δραστηριότητες που φαρμόζονται βαθμιάια και σταδιακά κατά τη διάρκεια του σχολικού έτους. Η αρχική ιδέα ανάπτυξης αυτού του σεναρίου προσεγγίστηκε μέσα στα πλαίσια του Ερωπαϊκού Έργου Organic.Edunet (http://portal.organic-edunet.eu/en). This scenario is prepared for children of primary and/or early secondary school. Its main purpose is to raise interest and sensitize pupils of this age in organic agriculture through gardening practices and experience on cultivating plants organically, developing a viable agro-ecological culture. It aims to provide children with opportunities to think and act as conscious and contemporary agroecologists within a viable development of societies which grow plants organically in respect with the environment, modern local and global agricultural economies and healthy eating habits. In other words, incorporating agriculture and organic gardening in the classroom helps students understand how humans interact with the environment and how food is grown. Further, agriculture and school gardening promotes awareness of a healthy lifestyle, helps students master even demanding science concepts, and exposes students to agricultural job opportunities. By designing, cultivating, and harvesting organic school gardens, children experience deeper understanding of natural systems and ecosystems and become better stewards of the earth.
