It was our great pleasure to plant a food forest together with the children from Karydia Kindergarden in Athens. We planted seeds, herbs fruit shrubs and a vegetable garden together with the children. But more important is the daily interaction with the children in their outdoor exploration space with the food forest. We are curious to hear what will happen over time and how the children will interact with the food forest.
Also a compost was added to their space, enabling the children to bring their food scraps back to the soil.
We hope in the future to introduce many more food forests in all kinds of schools and kindergardens.
Reconnect children with nature, bring them closer to how their food is produced, support the educators in their efforts to support the children, increase the edible plant biodiversity in the outdoor space of the children
Together with the kids we planted roughly 100 plants, mainly herbs, fruit shrubs and vegetable plants; other schools got inspired by it and will in the near future also implement a food forest in their space
This planting was funded by The Helidoni foundation as part of our Food Forest Tour.
We are very grateful for their support.
