In addition to being a fun hobby, gardening is also relaxing and helps both kids and adults to develop their skills, enhance their sense of responsibility and boost their self-confidence.
In this new SNFCC workshop series, children and adults learn the value and importance of gardening, they discover its secrets, and talk about how plants grow and develop, and what their needs are.
We work in teams to create a beautiful and productive vegetable garden in the Stavros Niarchos Park garden beds: Prepare it, make planting beds and gradually plant seasonal vegetables. We experience gardening tasks, including seeding, planting, watering, nutrition, protection, hoeing and weeding.
Bugorama: The World of Insects: In our October meeting, we discover the world of insects – the friends and enemies of our garden. We observe live insects up close through the magnifying glass and the stereoscope, and attempt to construct a “hotel” for them.
