Inspired by the “Children in Permaculture” project, the teachers and children of the Rasarit kindergarten planted a raised garden that became a fresh source of joy and inspiration for everyone! The children are delighted every day to see their plants grow, to rub their hands with the aromatic leaves of mint and basil and breathe in the scent, to watch the cucumber grow and lengthen every day!
The children were involved in planting seeds and caring for them until they grew into plants for transplanting. They then transplanted the plants and watched them grow. Soon they were eating peas, swiss chard and cucumbers in their salad at lunchtime. The experience was empowering, and a source of pride and excitement for everyone involved.
