In addition to being a fun hobby, gardening is also relaxing and helps both kids and adults to develop their skills, enhance their sense of responsibility and boost their self-confidence. In this new SNFCC workshop series, children and adults learn the value and importance of gardening, they discover its secrets, and talk about how plants grow and develop, and what their needs are. We work in teams to create a beautiful and productive vegetable garden in the Stavros Niarchos Park garden beds: Prepare it, make planting beds and gradually plant seasonal vegetables. We experience gardening tasks, including seeding, planting, watering, nutrition, protection, hoeing and weeding.
Our Winter Vegetable Garden:
In winter, plant growth slows down. In SNFCC’s vegetable garden, we will have the opportunity to observe the rhythms of plants and understand how they make sense of time. After familiarizing ourselves with the ways of nature, we will learn all we need to take good care of our plants during this time of the year.
