We’re turning existing classrooms into ‘living’ interactive learning environments.
Our Living Classroom includes:
- Classroom worm farm
- Container vegetable garden
- Growing sprouts and healthy living
- Yoga classes
- Vision boards
- Affirmation cards
We run hands on workshops with the teachers and children introducing them to each of the above programmes. Thereafter the class is responsible for feeding the worms, watering the garden, growing the sprouts, choosing a daily affirmation card etc. The liquid fertilizer (‘worm tea’) and compost are used on their container gardens and all produce, along with the sprouts they grow, goes directly into their daily feeding scheme meals. An Earthchild Facilitator visits regularly to teach yoga, check on the existing programmes and run follow up lessons.
