Organic garden programs for children

By Jaime Marroquin | Managing Director

Aldea Maya has a plethora of  hands on organic garden projects in the Chuk Muk Elementary School.

The grade 4, 5 and 6 students have been learning about different plants and herbs that grow in the greenhouse and garden.Then each student has made a page for our plant directory by focusing on one plant and learning all about it. The finished directory has well over 100 unique pages. The students then worked together to create a book on insects and bugs, learning which are beneficial and which can cause problems in the garden.

Recently the grade 3 & 4 students have been learning about the importance of rich organic soil in the garden as not only a home for plants but as a home for beneficial bacteria and insects. They have also learned about starting their own plants to take home to replant and they are  using recycled plastic bottles they have collected from the street as plant pots. The students then collected beans from our greenhouse and started their own mini greenhouse.
