NLdoet Gardening with ISTwente

Voluntary gardening for NLdoet

Friday 9th March 2018, ISTwente primary participated in a morning of voluntary work in light of NLdoet, the annual National weekend of Volunteers in the Netherlands. At 11:00 am all classes joined with other volunteers to sow seeds at a new garden, just around the corner of the school. Besides sowing, the children got a taste of gardening by doing their own bit of shovelling, raking, stamping, and planting.

 

During our activities, a filmcrew from a local TV station was on site and interviewed Mr. Jason Wilson as well as two of our students. You can find the full report here.

 

Following the sowing, the volunteers will also be preparing some plots by the school shed, so that we can plant our own seeds and officially start a School Garden!
