EU’GO experimentations

Scuola Media San Benedetto The first year of EU’GO project was dedicated to the discovery of other national and European realities and to the exchange of ideas. During the second year gardeners that participated to the Study Visits will implement in their urban garden a Good Practice that they observed in another country. A reflection activity on their learning process and acquisition of competences will take place, so in the end will contribute to the creation of tools used in the e-learning webpage , in order to give the opportunity to other gardeners to continue experimenting and learning!

Teacher Paola Turroni travels with EU’GO in 2012 to Spain where she visits for the first time a synergy garden and gets inspired.

We plant the little plants from our seedbeds. Now we will take care of them, by watering them and look for their growth. Then we came back to the beginning of the garden project and, togheter with the CEMEA del Mezzogiorno responsibles, the teachers, Antonio and the moms, we prepared beautiful poster. So other people can see the work done and what we learnt.
