carrots, cauliflower, celery, chamo-
mile, chard, chaya, chia, scallions,
cilantro, lemongrass, cucumber, dill,

The sponsors would like to see the
children apply what they learn from
these courses to their future activities,
hence making permaculture a per-

survival depends.
This program aims
to change and
improve the way we
grow as well as our
of nature.
Students at these
