GPR Field Trip: A Day on the Farm

On 27th of July, 44 rangers and their parents learned about sustainable agriculture through a morning of fun-filled and educational activities, which included a tour of the farm, bamboo cooking, peanut planting, duck-feeding, flower crown-making, farmed-themed games, and a black soldier fly composting workshop. Through seeing and experiencing the farm first-hand, the participants became more aware of their food source and production, and the need for a more sustainable food system.

The Art of the Kokedama

On 30th of June, 36 Junior Rangers joined this simple but engaging workshop. Kokedama, or the Japanese “moss ball”, is a creative way of displaying houseplants, which not only creates a greener living space but also improves indoor air quality. While many of the parents seemed even more eager to learn and create their own Kokedama than their kids, hopefully, the Kokedama which each child brought home will be a beautiful reminder of the importance of a green Mother Earth!
