AGRICULTURE BOX EDIBLE GARDEN PROJECT
Grow an edible learning school yard and take the curriculum outside the classroom: Agriculture Box is an educational tool
for every single area of the curriculum.
If you are a teacher or parent hoping to start a kitchen
garden, we are here to help! Agriculture Box Edible Educational Projects are
set up in leading schools across the UAE.
Did you know that children who plant their own fruit and
vegetables are more likely to eat them? For nursery and primary school children,
who are not yet in charge of their food choices, a school garden is a great
place to construct a foundation for healthy eating. Think of the school yard as an open-air classroom for cultivating, learning and tasting different fruit, vegetables and aromatic herbs fresh from the soil. Positive experiences in the outdoor classroom lead to new habits at home
School Gardens are living laboratories where interdisciplinary lessons are drawn from real life experiences, encouraging students to become active participants in the learning process.
The Agriculture Box Edible Garden Project enables hands-on-learning in a variety of educational subjects and includes
educational charts, short lectures on the introduction to soil microbiology
& composting, nutrition and the benefits of growing organic.
Agriculture Box Enterprising Education
Projects can also provide valuable funds for schools by pupils hosting market
days and selling the produce to parents. Food growing also provides a practical
opportunity for numeracy based learning and gaining business enterprise skills for every age group.
Agriculture Box has a water automation system, so no need to worry about watering your plants during the weekends & school holidays.
