School Garden Project Background

 

Dr. Jane Goodall's book 'Harvest for Hope' tells us that food security is an imminent issue. The School Garden Project hopes that by engaging students in gardening activities and helping them to understand the food supply chain, they can go on to make thoughtful consumer choices.

 

 

Since 2011, the School Garden Project has led school campus and community gardening activities for young people, in order to increase local greenery, and foster enjoyment and appreciation of local nature. The program also teaches youths about environmental conservation. At the same time, the program aims to improve the students' confidence, sense of responsibility and teamwork skills. We hope to guide them to live sustainably, and contribute personally and actively to environmental conservation and the sustainable development of our society.

 

 

School Garden Project on Campus

 

The School Garden Project (previously known as Organic Grow Project) was launched on 5 March 2011, with the constant support and encouragement from Roots & Shoots student organizations. We aim to grow seasonal fruits and vegetables with students, organise screenings of organic agriculture documentaries, as well as run meetings to share our planting experiences, farm work activities etc.

 

School Garden Project on Farms

 

Students participate in farm work to improve their understanding of growing crops, familiarise themselves with farm animals, and learn how to cook their own meals. The farm outings enable urban children to fully comprehend how an organic farm operates.
