Under its initiative of promoting urban gardening, FHF teamed up with Zaher – Grow to Learn, a Danish NGO aiming at supporting young Syrian refugees residing in Lebanon and marginalized youth from the Lebanese host communities, to establish learning gardens in two educational centers one in Aley run by the French NGO “Yalla! Pour les Enfants” and one “Baraem Al-Mustakbal” in Bar Elias, Central Bekaa run by the Lebanese NGO Sawa.
The project “Promoting learning gardens as a mean of producing healthy food amongst Syrian refugees and Lebanese host communities“ aims at training young Syrian and Lebanese students on sustainable gardening practices in order to produce healthy food in and around their schools. The school gardens will serve as models for organic farming and permaculture. Training sessions on different relevant topics will be prepared by FHF team in collaboration with SOILS Permaculture Association Lebanon.
