The activity starts with a powerpoint presentation and a practical activity related to how we can plant different species of plants according to some characteristics of the plants but also of the soil and season. The students were divided into 3 groups and they had to design a garden that is as diversified as possible in order to achieve a balanced diet. They did it on the paper first and then they went outside on the field , they actually received the plants they had in the previous activity and did the planting activity in reality, taking into account all the conditions needed by the plants to grow.
The students learnt that cultivating plants is not as easy as it seems, and they need to know a lot of things in order to have a successful and healthy plantation. Besides learning a lot of new information, they also had fun when they did the practical activity and learnt more by doing it themselves.
