One step can significantly improve the quality of our life – you just need to do it and open yourself to the magic of indoor plants.
– say Małgorzata, Aleksandra and Jagoda from MYP4
Małgorzata, Aleksandra and Jagoda put forward a hypothesis that students need more greenery in their immediate surroundings. Not only at home, but also during the school day. They conducted a survey in a group of their peers from our high school. The survey confirmed that over 90% of respondents feel the need to increase the amount of plants in the school, and over 96% of them consider the “Window Farming” technique to be a great solution to the problem. The students also indicated which plants they would most like to welcome in their surroundings.
The girls prepared a detailed manual, enriched with drawings, on how to prepare a vertical window cultivation. The instruction was given to other students via the Google drive.
However, social activities did not end there. The authors of the project also prepared posters and a press article promoting the idea of Window farming and invited the editor-in-chief of Wrocław’s Gazeta Osiedle and Gazeta Piastowska, who agreed to print the article in his newspapers.
We hope that the girls’ initiative will find a wide response, especially among urban youth, who – after months of lockdown – miss the contact with nature like never before.
