vegetable-gardens

The “Vegetable gardens for a hundred schools in Cyprus” campaign took place in April and was organized by Elysee Irrigation, Premier Shukuroglou and Solomou Nurseries. The three companies provided to one hundred primary schools with free compost, seeds and integrated irrigation systems for the growth of vegetable gardens. The first place award in the contest for the best vegetable garden was given to Apsiou Elementary School in Limassol, Cyprus.

The objective of this environmental campaign was to motivate children to take action in protecting the environment through hands on experience; exposing students to gardening contributes to develop their relationship with nature while enhancing their social and environmental consciousness.
