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.
SNFCC’s Spring Vegetable Garden
In February, we prepare our seed trays for spring vegetables. In SNFCC’s vegetable garden, we will have the opportunity to learn about indigenous varieties, seeds and biodiversity. We will talk about plant nutrition and how to care for the soil and garden beds. We will also observe the development of grains and legumes in our garden, and will plant additional vegetables.
