We have gathered lesson plans, videos and other media to help you teach about our themes of waste, food security, water, innovation and mosquito vector control.
Children are the future so we have gathered resources to help educate the next generation about our themes of waste and food security. See below to learn more about our garden lessons, waste lesson and recycling depots. Our garden lesson plans have been adopted into the national curriculum and encourage teachers to use the gardens as outdoor classrooms for learning math, science, english and social studies.
