bodyxq - School gardening project

Place:
a primary school in Cyprus

People involved and supported the project:
all the students of the school, teachers, and parents’ council

Description:

Children were taught during the Science class, Home Economics Class, and other classes, the importance of having a diet rich in micronutrients for their health. Research contacted from older children (year 5/6 - age 10/11) regarding the foods rich in vitamins such as fruits and vegetables. Children came to the conclusion that their diet was poor in this kind of foods and nutrients.

It was obvious that action should be taken in order to promote positive attitude towards the consumption of fruit and vegetables among the children. The idea of making the students become producers themselves would increase this positive attitude and give them the chance to taste various vegetables that they wouldn’t at home.

All the people involved in this project contributed in constructing two big green houses in the school yard. Agriculturalists were invited to school to support the project with their knowledge and advice (which vegetables are growing every season/what fertilizer was more appropriate etc.)

Children also contacted their own research of how they could achieve an organic vegetable production:

  • 1. They were producing their own pesticides with natural substances (i.e. vinegar with garlic etc.)
  • 2. They learned about the composting process and they were preparing their own compost from the leftovers of their launch, using it as fertilizer.

Children were responsible for all the stages of production, from planting to harvesting Children could go anytime to pick fresh vegetables and eat them raw during their brakes but older children would also pick vegetables to cook during their Home Economic classes. Occasionally, they would prepare salads for the rest of the school and served them to the younger children during their launch time.

Children contacted research about the micronutrients contained in the vegetables they were producing and about the health benefits of these specific vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots etc.). For this they searched on the internet developing skills of research and evaluation of scientific resources.

Year six (age 11) also took part in a ‘salad competition’. Children were working in groups and they developed their own recipe using much creativity and imagination. Then they contacted a research during their IT classes for the micronutrients and health benefits of their ingredients and prepared respective material to provide to their families and teachers.

Outcome:

the number of the kids that they would never have some salad during their school launch decreased to about 10% whereas before the launching of the program more than 50% would deny adding salad in their trays; let alone trying some.

Knowledge is health!

Many children would ask more times for salad during their launch whereas before almost none of them would go ask for more. Children didn’t know the names of the vegetables they would plant and it was impossible for the great majority of the children to recognize them or their taste during their launch. As the program was developing, children got familiar with many more vegetables and they were eager to pick them and eat them raw (i.e. broccoli).

Parents mentioned that they observed a big change in their children’s dietary habits at home and they were very pleased with the fact that school could affect their children’s habits at home in such a positive way. Children in many cases, also mentioned that their parents were influenced by that program meaning that they also became ‘fans’ of salads only after their children demanded that they have salad in a daily basis at home. Also, children raised a kind of ‘taste sensitivity’; most of them could recognize vegetables while eating them with eyes closed. Above all, they could sense the difference on the taste between their organic products and the ordinary ones they had at home from the market. Last but not least, children realized the importance of choosing quality food. They could explain in their own words that ‘quality food’ meant food rich in nutrients which can have a positive effect on their body and health.

They understood that every choice they made during their school brakes in regards of what they eat could affect their health, their school performance and so on. Many children preferred to bring fruits from home and they avoided bringing or buying from school canteen biscuits or chocolates. That was not the case before. Also, many children would decide to treat their classmates with fruits for their birthday and not with chocolates or cakes as in the past. The same was the case with some teachers who were giving fruits and vegetables to their students as awards for their school performance and efforts. Fruits and vegetables given as awards made children very enthusiastic in eating them.
