Ağaçlı Primary School - Hobby Garden Project

A hobby garden was created in the school grounds for children to access secure food and to have a richer nutrition. Students were informed about seeds of various vegetables and fruits. They received training on how different crops are planted, how long it takes for crops to grow, how to make the most efficient irrigation and the types and conditions of soils. Along with the IGA personnel, both the schoolteacher and the students prepared the area where saplings would be planted and afterwards planted tomato, pepper, cucumber, strawberry, basil, purple basil and melon seeds.
