Teaching agroecology in schools
To value local culture, and to encourage a healthy lifestyle it is important that schools include topics on farming and traditional food in their curriculum and activities. Weave elements related to agroecology in the school curriculum of all the grades. By organising field visits, children can learn from farmers about local varieties, ecological cropping practices and farming tools. You can create a room dedicated to local farm culture where children can read books, watch videos, display their art work, and play games. In a school garden, teachers, pupils and parents can grow crops and other plants. It is important to offer healthy school meals with local ingredients.
