学校花园项目为难民学生带来希望 2016-02-09

位于马来西亚槟城的大叻国际学校小学花园俱乐部将向缅甸Rohyngya难民伸出援助之手。俱乐部每周聚会一次,学习有益的园艺技术及水栽培原理。学生们耕种一小块室外水栽培田地,种植两种菠菜:本地和巴西菠菜。两种菠菜长势都很好。

通过他们的导师Lisa Munson,学生们向槟城的一所难民学校提供支持,与其分享水栽培工具包,以此作为帮助那里学生的一种途径。学生们还分享他们从实践探索中学到的有关可持续园艺的知识。

Garden at Dalat International School难民学校的大部分植物长势良好,学生们被分配照料植物的任务,这对他们是一个积极的机会。然而,由于围绕难民处境的问题,所有植物都必须在上锁的门后生长;如果植物种在外面,就有可能被盗。室内条件已经导致一些植物死亡,但是辣木、罗勒和菠菜依旧长势不错。
