There are many important educational activities in Prado Nursery and Primary School, an eco-school in northern Portugal. The pupils cultivate the land, grow their own vegetables and fruit, look after animals who live in the organic garden. They learn also how to cook the food which is grown and produced at their school. The idea is to develop an understanding for the environment through activities, or as Maria Luísa Queirós, the project’s coordinator, points out: “Making children aware that we should not pollute the environment. Teaching them about the food chain… how to sow, look after, harvest and consume. They learn several scientific concepts. With the animals they learn about their habitats, their characteristics and morpholog. Activities in which they learn by doing.” The work developed by the teachers, students and their parents was recognized in 2014 with the Prize for the best school organic garden, awarded by two Portuguese associations (AGROBIO and ABAE). Can food sustainability start at your own kitchen table?
