Over the years we’ve planted many gardens, big and small. However, theft and vandalism have been a constant challenge and have often left us and the children feeling quite despondent. That’s until Xoli came up with a great solution – the indoor windowsill herb garden!
Our main aim has always been to give children the experience of planting, caring for and harvesting as a way to deepen their connection and appreciation for nature. And now, all our Living Classrooms have beautiful basil, mint, sage, parsley and chillies growing in their classrooms, right next to their worm farms.
A few little entrepreneurs have decided the want to make herb bunches to sell to the teachers at the end of the year.
