Planting lettuce and other vegetables, preparing the ground for sowing, controlling pests without spraying, collecting fungi and fruits or designing fun crafts, are activities that are included in this project. Sowing as a method of learning in children, not only promotes the conservation of nature, the improvement of the environment, also teaches them how the human being from this activity can obtain products from it.
Additionally we seek to teach, mathematics, because we can work on aspects such as areas, counting, operations or geometry, in the area of social sciences they focus on cultivation associations, the climate or the products themselves for planting. It is sought that the garden is as ecological as possible, also organizing environmental or recycling workshops, where children learn by doing it themselves.
CONTRIBUTING TO THIS PROJECT MANY CHILDREN CAN LEARN THESE AND OTHER IMPORTANT TRAINING ASPECTS IN THE 21ST CENTURY, TO CONSERVE AND LOVE THE EARTH.
The current problem regarding pollution and climate change has made the environment worry us all. Environmental Education is essential for children and achieve the objectives set worldwide
Sustainable Development, (present development that does not compromise the capabilities of the future to meet their needs), is the understanding that many countries assume to ensure a healthy future for our children and future generations. With this project we aim to join the fulfillment of the Global Sustainable Development Goals that seek to sanitize the environment.
It is essential to educate children on environmental issues explaining and ensuring that they are sensitized and take environmental awareness, ecological knowledge, attitudes and values towards the environment in order to achieve adequate and sustainable development.
Environmental Education is a process that lasts a lifetime and aims to impart environmental awareness, this education has to start as soon as possible because in this way, children will identify and solve environmental problems at an early age, and can continue with this in adulthood and will be able to make decisions, giving possible answers to the problem we have today.
Support this type of education and the environment, donating to make it possible.
Through the Ecological garden (orchard) in Corporacion Superarse and the Aquaponics project, many children and young people like Erika and Julie have had the opportunity to learn in a different way and have visualized other ways of producing food.
Erika and Julie attend educational workshops where they learn to grow and harvest vegetables, learn from the entire aquaponics system, plant, care for, and harvest the fish, all this not only serves them for consumption, but also is a way of entrepreneurship with the possibility of having income through small spaces in their own houses or terraces.
Aquaponics is a productive activity that has been talked about for a long time, however, now takes more boom, due to new technologies and advances in fish production systems, such as recirculation that are being used Currently, they are complemented with the production of hydroponic vegetables. Turning the system into a form of ecological sustainability, aligned with the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES, raised worldwide.
We need your help so that more and more children, youth and adults can have access to the innovative education that can be found in the Ecological garden - Corporacion Superarse. Support education with your donations.
This month we have the challenge of preparing preserves and other products from the vegetables planted in the garden, 2 mothers in a condition of vulnerability, help us to develop the products with which we will participate in a city fair so that they know us, at the same We help them by teaching them another way to earn an income.
The vegetable garden of the Corporación Superarse, is a different educational space that aims, through plants and fish, to teach children and young people the conservation of the environment and the different activities that can be carried out from this topic.
Having this garden and the aquaponic system (fish with hydroponics) installed in a house within the city, has given us the opportunity to get to know each other in different areas and to carry out training and production activities based on what we have planted here .
In the photos we see some of the handmade products, 100% organic.
Your contribution will make it possible for more and more vulnerable women and children to learn to take care of the environment, take advantage of what nature gives us and transform it into products that become money for them.
After a lot of work, learning and contributions from different people and companies, we share you, that we have our AQUAPONIC SYSTEM working. This is a system of sustainable production of plants and fish that combines the breeding of fish, with hydroponics, growing plants in water in a symbiotic environment.
In November some of the children and young participants, enjoyed and learned in the process of sowing the fish in the tanks that make up the system.
We are one of the first urban acuponics systems in the city and through it we look for 3 objectives:
1. Education in different environmental and ecological issues for our children. 2. Self-consumption in the feeding of the children attended in our Corporación Superarse. 3. Commercialization of fish looking for the economic sustainability of the Corporación Superarse.
We are happy, with this achievement we are contributing to fulfill the dream of education and feeding of many children and young people. In addition to being aligned with one more objective of global sustainable development.
With your contributions we can continue to grow and strengthen this dream!
