School garden program
Learn. Propagate. Plant. Grow. Eat.
In 2018 Argencove commenced its “Budding minds” school garden program. With many schools lacking in green spaces for children to be children we wanted to value add to the school grounds and curriculum via an interactive gardening program.
Our key focus for the program was to teach children how to propagate and grow their own plants from various fruits and vegetables with the aim to not only establish and nurture their school garden but to also develop one at home.
With donations of supplies, time and instruction the Argencove team commenced their program at Granada International School in February 2018 with aims to expand to further schools in 2019.
“Granada International School, located in Granada, Nicaragua, had the pleasure of working with Argencove of CyB Productos Agricolas, S.A. during our academic year. They worked primarily with our 5th and 6th graders transforming a part of the campus that was covered in rocks and debris. The children worked along side the organization to plant cacao, pigeon pea and plantains. They also received classes on how to recycle foods and create gardens. They learned how to dry papaya seeds and how to reuse pineapple stems to generate new fruits.
Their programs inspired our students to continue these projects at home. The plants grown were a source of daily admiration, used in math classes and in science classes. Measurement units in math class were taken outside to measure how quickly the plantain trees grow. The children frequented the gardens every morning especially after the rains began to admire what they had begun.
We are very grateful to this amazing organization and are very excited to continue to work with them in the future. Their programs are powerful and resonate with the children who then become advocates at home for recycling produce”
