The “Seeds of Nature”
project continues to involve children in the garden and in the preparation of meals in TLC. The intent is to get closer and closer to our Mother Earth, to learn from her and to eat local and seasonal foods. This year the children worked in small groups and have started their own personal gardens, which encourages them to explore the cycles of nature and care for the environment. They are very proud of these little personal gardens especially when the garden gives fruit and vegetables ready to taste.
In Natural Science activities children learned about different types of plants, when is the optimal time to grow them, which plants grow in Auroville and the different seasons we have in this country. They observed flowers, leaves, roots, seeds, insects and finally we went to visit Savitri Nursery to see and learn how to create our own nursery for next year’s seedlings.
