Comorin cultivates its own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden, he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest. In today‟s busy life, we don‟t get much time to get in tune with our environment. Our Gardening Club gives us a chance to do so. It helps to create a healthier environment too. The children of the club enjoy lots of hands-on experience of
growing fruits, vegetables, flowers and medicinal plants. Sedentary lifestyles make them have a limited understanding of the links between exercise, nutrition and lifelong health. Gardening paves way for them to gain experience of food growing, from planting seeds to the cultivation of the plants and caring for the produce they grow whilst learning how and where food comes from. School gardening affects eating habits, too. Children become more likely to eat vegetables, even as snacks, and to ask family members to buy vegetables and fruits for them.
Activities of the Gardening Club include:
- Drip irrigation
- Windowsill gardening for kids
- Vegetable cloning
- Learning about insects
- Learning values of medicinal plants
