During the months of June and July 2017, the foundation was pleased to collaborate with the European Institute for Cooperation and Development (iecd) and introduce gardening classes in the summer school program held in the educational center Janah in Sabtieh.
Around 90 students from Syrian refugee communities benefited from these classes which aimed at introducing the basics of agriculture and teach the young students the production of healthy food.
The students were eager to start their own vegetable garden which included seasonal veggies, aromatic plants and ornamental flowers as well.
They learned how to identify pests, beneficial insects and weeds and how to make their own compost!
FHF team was very happy to know that many of the students planted small gardens at home and implemented what they have been taught!
