Title of the Good Practice

Community Garden Project (Potager collectif)

Description of the Good Practice

This project involved students from different grade levels working together to plan, create, and maintain a community garden within the school premises. They researched various plants, designed the garden layout, calculated the budget, and even organized educational events for younger students about gardening and sustainability.

The project evolves also on another level as all residents of the community can participate and everyone sows, maintains and harvests a common plot, to community gardens, where each gardener cultivates his or her own little patch of land.
